Virgil Holman Sr. Obituary

Virgil Mack Holman Sr. was born on May 22, 1945, to Ruby Joe Holman and Jeanie Rainey-Holman in Edinburg, Arkansas. He passed on April 29, 2023, at John L. McCellan Veterans Hospital in Little Rock, Arkansas. The world lost a jokester who had a beautiful spirit.

“Virg” affectionately called by family and close friends started from humble beginnings. He graduated from JE Wallace High School (formerly Dallas County Training School) in Fordyce, AR in 1963. Shortly thereafter he went into the US Marine Corps. He served approximately four years at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. He went on to become a jack of all trades in the areas of carpentry, electrical, and plumbing. He was never caught without his tools; always willing to lend a hand. He was blessed with six children: Virgil Jr., Victor, Shelia, Lesley, and London Sr. He was funny and quick witted. All that knew him would agree he was a character.

Virgil was preceded in death by his parents; Ruby Joe Holman and Jeanie Rainey-Holman, Ex-wife; Vallie P. Holman, two brothers; Jewel Holman and Herbert Holman, three sisters; Eunice Lee Holman-Wright, Ruby Mae Holman-Matthews, and Sandra Ann Holman-Buckles.

He leaves to cherish his memory, three sons: Virgil M. Holman jr., of England, AR, Victor D. Hall (Brenda) of Washington DC, Sheldon L. Holman (Edna) of Bryant, AR, and London Holman sr., of Malvern, AR, two daughters; Shelia A. Holman (Derrick Grundy) of Magnolia, AR, and Lesley L. Holman of North Little Rock, AR, one brother; Charles H. Holman of Pine Bluff, AR. He had fifteen grandchildren, twenty-five great grandchildren and a host of nieces, nephews, family and two special friends, Roger McCoy and Louise Saxton.
