Doug was born on July 12, 1960, at Hanover, son of Willis and Berdean (Kruse) Holle. On July 31, 1960, he was Baptized into the Christian faith at Trinity Lutheran Church by Rev. August Pera. His sponsors were George Kruse and Ben Holle. On April 7, 1974, he confessed his Christian faith in the Rite of Confirmation at Trinity Lutheran Church. His Confirmation Pastor was Rev. Donald Behrens. He graduated from Trinity Lutheran School and Hanover High School. He received his Associate of Arts degree from North Central Kansas Technical College in Beloit. On October 25, 2015, Doug married Debbie Gilbert. Doug began working for Federal Crop Insurance, then as a salesperson for McGinnis Ford in Lincoln, Beatrice Ford in Beatrice, and then Rick Honeymann Ford in Marysville. He was a member of The Pony Express Re-Riders for almost 40 years. He loved being a grandfather. He was a close friend with Jason and Donny Vculek and Timothy Coleman, considering them as his “adopted” children. Doug enjoyed his horse, dogs, spending time with friends, fishing, attending auctions, and his Ford trucks. He was preceded in death by his father, Willis Holle; grandparents, George and Edna Kruse and Ben and Martha Holle; father and mother-in-law, Leon and Alice Gilbert; brother-in-law, Chuck Butts; uncles, Don Kruse and Robert Holle; and aunts, Rosanna Scherling and Adeline Vernon. Survivors include his wife, Debbie; mother, Berdean Holle, Hanover; sister, Cindy (Timothy) Rippe, Andale, KS; two brothers, Stan (Carol) Holle, Whitesboro, TX, and Clint (Megan) Holle, Hanover; two stepdaughters, Susie (Paul) Plunkett and Vicki (Steve) Schroeder; and step-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins, and his many friends. We give thanks to God for all the blessings that He gave to Doug during his life. We especially give thanks for the greatest gift of God, the gift of the Savior Jesus Christ, so through faith in Him Doug could have the promise of life in the glory of Heaven. A memorial fund has been established and will be designated later. Contributions may be sent in care of the Hanover Mortuary.
