Obituary of Nickie Holt
Nickie “Nick” Joe Holt, age 78, passed away at his home in Sapulpa, Oklahoma on October 29, 2022. He was born in Pryor, Oklahoma on January 17, 1944 to J.D. and Mary Jo (Jones) Holt.
Nick graduated from Pryor High School in 1962 and married Melita Brooks on August 4, 1967. He was self-employed, working in distribution for Hiland Dairy and retired in 2013.
Nick loved to fish and hunt, but he loved vintage cars even more. He bought and sold a ‘65 GTO, ‘55 Chevy, a 2 door, hard top ‘57 Chevy, a ‘40 Coupe, ‘69 Chevy Camaro, and a ‘64 Corvette. He also enjoyed going to the casino as well as his cigarettes and coffee. Nick loved OU football. If he wasn’t at the game, you could find him in front of the TV cheering his team on.
Nick was a member of the First United Methodist Church. He was a very generous person and would always help anyone in need. Nick was diagnosed with glioblastoma and survived for 28 months after his diagnosis, much longer than the expected national average. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.
Preceding Nick in death were his parents, J.D. and Mary Jo Holt, and all 3 of his siblings Carolyn Sue True, Marilyn Dawn O’Bar, John Dan Holt, Jr. and twin son and daughter Joel Dan Holt and Jennifer Dawn Holt. He is survived by his wife Melita Holt, daughter Stacy Hardzog and husband Ron, son Jason Holt and wife Victoria, grandchildren Joseph Hardzog and wife Julie, Cassie Wallace and husband Kyle, Joshua Holt and Jacob Holt, as well as great-grandchildren Easton and Cal Wallace and Halle and Holt Hardzog.To send flowers to the family or plant a tree in memory of Nickie Holt, please visit Tribute Store
