Announcement on Chris Holmes

It is with great regret that we must inform you that Chris Holmes has passed away peacefully this afternoon surrounded by this family.

FROM THE CHRIS HOLMES CIRCLE
on Facebook
posted by his son Mark Holmes
"With a very heavy heart and mixed feelings, I regret to say that dad has finally lost his 12 month battle this afternoon with mom, Becky, and I by his side during his last few breathes. We're so incredibly blessed and grateful to have been with him on his peaceful exit from this life to life everlasting.

As painful as this is for us all, we are finding strength in prayer and understanding that he is no longer suffering. Please keep my mom in your thoughts and prayers, and please respect this difficult time of mourning and emotional adjustment - she does not want phone calls and visits at this immediate point in time.

When the time comes, however, (and we will let you know) we will all need to help keep her company, active/busy, distracted, and positive, as the next several days, weeks, months, and years will be most difficult for her.

Details on a memorial service and celebration of life will be forthcoming (as dad wanted to be cremated), but we will do our best to keep all aware and alerted as soon as we can. If you know of someone who is not on CaringBridge or Facebook who would want to know, please relay the sad news.

Thank you all for your genuine concern, thoughts, visits, goodies, and prayers over the past 12 months. They have helped us all tremendously this year - again, we are blessed and grateful!"

Our thoughts and prayers are going out to Lynn and the entire family. We are so honored that we were able to be part of the MOC family along with Chris and Lynn and got to know them. We have many great memories and will miss them at our rallys and gatherings and especially his laugh. Lynn, you know that you will always be a dear friend to us and may our paths cross again. Love and Hugs

Sad to hear the passing of Chris,
we met them at the VA Staunton rally a few years back.
Prayers for the family!

Remembering Chris. He will be surely missed. He was always fun to be around and he had a laugh that would get you to laughing just listening to him. He loved his pipe and was never without one. Rest in Peace friend. We will keep Lynn and the family in our prayers.

Our condolences to Lynn and her children. What a great picture of Chris and Lynn when they won the Denver mattress at Tiara RV. We will all miss Chris' unique laugh and personality. He would call out of the blue and brighten my day on the mountain. We all know he is in a much better place now, the pain is gone and he is with our Lord. Rest In Peace, Capt'n Chris.

Our hearts are heavy hearing this sad news.

It was a pleasure to know him and Lynn. I believe I remember him being in charge of the campfires at some of the rallies we attended. Always enjoyed his wit!!! He is missed.

Prayers for peace and comfort for Lynn and the family.

A few years ago while planning our West Coast trip, we got in touch with Chris and Lynn through the MOC. Many, many emails went back n forth with travel information and we became internet friends.

Two years ago they stopped in Florida and we were fortunate enough to meet them in person and again thank Chris for all of his help... We have made many wonderful friends through the MOC, Chris and Lynn are one of them..

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Lynn and her family at this very sad time..
