Denny L. Holle, 77, of rural Hiawatha, with family by his side, died Sunday evening, April 19, 2020, at his rural home.
Denny was born at Greenleaf, KS, on December 8, 1942, one of five children born to Lawrence and Rosy Holle (Craig). He attended Shaw Country School and then went to Barnes High School. After school, Denny did the farming and chores at their family farm.
Denny married Bethel in 1974, and they made their home in Hiawatha, KS, where he lived the rest of his life. Denny worked for Flair Fold for 37 years until they closed. He then worked at Wilde Tool Company for five years and then retired. To say Denny was an avid garden tractor puller was very much understated!
