I'm saddened to hear this news. Is this the Ed Holt I knew as a jack-of-all trades? painter, cleaner, tireless and perfectionist worker and friend? What a loss,I knew he had been battling something a long time and always thought a true blue guy. I wish him peace forever. God speed...

I know he had another son with a woman other than my mother and I know his name was Eddie, so it could be you. I would figure you to be about 24-25 years old. Is this you?

Eddie,tried to be a good father and a good husband but he didn't have the up bringing to be that person and he didn't know how to find it in himself.I never hated him for all his wrong doings,he did teach me allot about the different kind of people in the world and I never closed my eyes again, I always keep them open.Eddie I hope you are at peace now and if you could watch over the boys,maybe from up there it will be easier, I know you always had them in your heart.

Your Dad was a very wonderful guy at heart, very sensitive at heart, loved his Mom, and his family very much,
It saddens me to know that you did not get to experience the Eddy that I knew back in the day, yes, he had his faults, as we all do, but he made up for those in so many other ways, I am sure he will be missed, and remembered in only one way, a ggod way, as it should be...
Best,

You can find family members very easily by going the genealogy route. Maybe it would be very nice to connect with family you didn't know you had. Good luck.

I have tried that route somewhat I think . However there are so many holts and I have literally zero information. I have never met or talked to anyone on that side of the family. His name was not put on my birth certificate I am told for many reasons . So I can not go that route either . Anyone with any information at all where or how I can get in contact with any type of family would really be great .
