RL & Dorothy Holder photo albums

RL Holder, born in February 1922 to Cy & Louise Holder 2 years after his brother Ray, was 10 years old when the great depression hit. Hard times for everyone yet he and his brother studied hard and both went to Oklahoma University. RL married a damn Yankee, Dorothy Shanks, and enlisted in the U.S. Army during WW II, went to O.C.S. and trained as an artillery officer and was shipped off to Europe, however, by the time he and his big guns arrived the Germans were retreating and their line was falling back faster than the big guns which traveled by rail could keep up and he never got close enough to fire, but, he was stationed in Germany for 3 years. Dorothy and 9 month old Russell joined him and traveled all over Europe in RL's 1937 Oldsmobile (rank has its privileges). After the war RL accepted a job offer from Westinghouse Electric Corporation where he worked mostly in Houston until he retired as a sales engineer with exception of a year of active duty at Fort Sill in Lawton Oklahoma in 1952 as a captain training young artillery officers. Westinghouse sales also had its privileges - a company car, company hunting leases and deep sea fishing trips. Dorothy returned to college when Russell started high school and became a teacher in the public high school system in Houston. RL's grandfather was a Pentecostal minister, and, following in the family's religious footsteps he was an active member of First Presbyterian Church in Houston serving as a deacon and as an elder for many years and occasionally serving as a minister for small Presbyterian churches in need. RL and Dorothy's college education was an inspiration to both their children, Russell and Pamela both of whom earned college degrees yielding successful careers in the computer industry.
