William Holston

GLASGOW — William Andrew (Andy) Holston, of Glasgow, passed away July 26, 2013, in Louisville following a brief illness.

He was born May 14, 1928, in Macon, Ga., to Francis Alexander Holston and Mary Elizabeth Post Holston. He was a graduate of Sidney Lanier High School in 1946 where he played trombone in the marching band. He later attended Mercer University in Macon.

Mr. Holston met his future wife, Bette Thaxton, of Jackson, Ga., in 1948 and they were married on Sept. 2, 1949. After marrying, Mr. Holston began a 20-year post as city gas engineer. He was a member of the Georgia National Guard for 21 years and retired with the rank of major. A community leader, he served on many boards, including the Sylvan Grove Hospital Board, which oversaw the construction of the county’s first hospital.

A devoted follower of Christ since age 15, Mr. Holston was known as a spiritual mentor to many people and a learned teacher of the Bible. He pastored churches in Georgia and Indiana. In 1965, he and his family served as missionaries in São Paulo, Brazil, where he supervised the building of a youth center, doing much of the manual labor himself. After returning to Georgia, he worked as a regional engineer for Ashland Oil until his retirement in 1990.

In 2003, Mr. Holston, along with his wife Bette, moved to Glasgow, to be in closer proximity to family. Even at the age of 85, he lived an active life — gardening, building, reading and, most important to him, sharing his faith.

He is survived by his wife of 63 years, Bette, and his three daughters and their families: Maria Marrs (the late Dr. William Marrs), of Glasgow, and their children, Billy Marrs (Cheryl) of Lexington, and daughter, Katherine Trivisonno, Benji Marrs (Missy), of Lexington, and children, Andrew and Mary Keene, and Dr. Brock Marrs (Ravin) and children, Liam and Evelyn Grace of Lexington; Andrea Bogard (Dennis) of Jeffersonville, Ind., and their children, Denny Bogard (Julie) of West Chester, Ohio, and children, Phoenix, Faith, and Christian, and Amy Alley (Josh) of Bloomington, Ind., and children Jarrin and Ella; and Kristina Schindler (Joe) of Nicholasville, and their children, Jennifer Powell of Nicholasville, and children, Lauren, Luke, Brooklyn, and Blake, Karen Schindler of Washington DC and son Alex, and Jessica Taylor (Jeremy) of Cadiz, and children Riley and Parker.

Also surviving are sisters-in-law, Fran Holston (the late Dr. Francis Holston) of Atlanta, Ga. and Sylvia Coleman (Doug) of Lafayette, Ga. and several nieces and nephews.

Mr. Holston was preceded in death by his father, mother, and brother, Dr. Francis Holston of Jackson, Ga.

Mr. Holston chose cremation. Interment will follow at Jackson City Cemetery, Jackson, Ga.

A celebration of life and memorial service is planned for a later date. A. F. Crow funeral home is in charge of arrangements
