     Stanley Douglas Holt was born on 4 January 1943.3 He married Jean Langille circa 1961.3 Stanley Douglas Holt died on 26 November 2018 at age 75.3,4

     Obituary from The Chronicle-Herald (Halifax, Nova Scotia), 28 November 2018:
Of River John. As the funeral arrives, we feel it is for other people because we have already spent many months grieving the memory of our loved one during his journey with Alzheimer's disease. His family stayed by his side during his final seven days of struggle.

Stanley was born January 4, 1943, a son of the late Russell and Annie (Bezanson) Holt. Stanley was a known worker. He started his working days at age 14, working in a sawmill in the woods and in construction, later becoming a heavy equipment mechanic. There wasn't much he couldn't fix from lawn mowers to heavy equipment. After retiring from Pioneer Coal he spent many hours in his garage doing just that, for whoever stopped by.

Stanley is survived by the love of his life for 57 years, Jean (Langille) Holt; daughters, Nancy (Gerald) Bates, Lisa (Greg Reid) Holt, Vicki (Kevin) McKay; grandchildren, Jordan (Rebecca) Bates, Mitchell (Brittnay) Bates, Noah and Sawyer Buchanan, Joel and Casey McKay (his special girl); great-grandchildren, Brenna and Kaiden Bates and two more expected in the spring; his brothers, Jack (Barb), Eric (Ginny), Donnie; sisters, Betty Langille, Diane (Bob) MacKenzie; brother-in-law, Clyde MacKenzie (Lorraine Tattrie); numerous nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews and cousins.

He was predeceased by his infant son, Evan; brothers, Jamie, Scott; and sister, Wanda.

Cremation has taken place. Visitation will be 7-9 p.m. today, Wednesday in Salem United Church, River John, from where funeral will be held 2 p.m. on Thursday, with Rev. Connie McNamara officiating. Family flowers only please.3
