Wesley Holland

April 24, 1943 — April 8, 2024

Wesley Leon Holland, 80, of Grant (former longtime Lemoyne resident), passed away on April 8, 2024, at his home.

Wes was born on April 24, 1943, to Wesley Lafayette Holland and Della Maxine Shaffer in Denver, CO. Wesley attended high school in Denver and then entered the US Army shortly after. He later married Maria Trujillo, and together they adopted a son, Steven Holland. Later on, they also adopted their granddaughter, Nichole Ross.

The family made their home in Denver, CO, where Wes worked in telecommunications. In 1974, they relocated to a house they built north of Lake McConaughy.

Wes was a skilled builder and a tinkerer. He was also a father figure, a loving husband, and a valued member of his community. He served as a charter member of the Keystone-Lemoyne Fire and Rescue. He served the organization from 1978 to 1990, four of those years as treasurer. He also served on the Ogallala Rural Fire District board for 14 years. Both organizations will miss his valuable experience.

Wes was also a longtime member of the Martin Bay Community Church, where he served on the board for many years.

He was preceded in death by his parents, wife Maria Holland; son, Steven Holland; and three siblings. He is survived by his granddaughter, Nichole Ross and her husband Benjamin Ross of Grant; his brother, Larry Holland and his wife Diane Holland of Denver, CO; and many other relatives and friends.
