S.W. “Si” Holt, 2/1/1925 – 10/11/2011

Donations by:

his loving wife, Emma

Silas Wayne "Si" Holt passed away on Saturday, October 15, 2011, at his home in Round Rock, TX due to complications from stomach cancer. His wife, Emma, his son, Si Jr., and his daughter, Linda, were at his side. Born in Haslam, TX on Feb. 1, 1925, he grew up in Lufkin and was a graduate of Lufkin High School. He joined the Army Air Force in May 1943 and married his high school sweetheart, Emma Ruth Law, on Nov. 28, 1943. He served during WWII as an airplane mechanic at bases in Wichita Falls and Galveston, TX, and Kansas City and Leavenworth, KS. In 1946, he began a long career with Texas Power & Light, and he moved his family to Dallas where he worked closely with the rural electric cooperatives. He joined TP&L's Public Service Dept. in 1968, and in 1976 was promoted to Vice President of Texas Utilities Services, Inc. where he served as Director of State and Governmental Affairs in Austin. Si and Emma moved their home base to Round Rock, TX in 1976 and Si retired from TXU in 1987. Prior to his "retirement", Si and Emma had planted a pecan orchard in San Saba, TX which they worked and enjoyed until they sold it in 1996. Si had an extraordinary gift for making people laugh. He was a lover of music, hunting, learning how things work and building them, education, reading, and sitting in his front porch swing. He lived a full life defined by hard work and integrity. And above all, he loved and cared for his beloved wife of 67 years. He is survived by Emma, Si Jr., and Linda; his sister, Elsie Redd, of Tyler; his brothers, David Holt, of Alto and Robert Holt, of Ingram; brothers and sisters-in-law, Flora Holt, Sylvia Holt, Annon Card, and Vernon Redd; numerous nieces and nephews; and, a host of loving friends and neighbors.There will be a visitation for Si on Tuesday, October 18, 2011 from 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm at Cook-Walden Chapel of the Hills Funeral Home located at 9700 Anderson Mill Road, Austin, Texas 78750.
