Theodore (Ted) J. Holboke, age 87, left this earth January 9, 2020 at his home in Happy Valley, Oregon. He fought cancer courageously for one year. A Service will be held Monday, January 20, 2020 at 11:00 A.M. at Willamette National Cemetery.
Ted is survived by his loving wife of 63 years, Jean Ann, and daughters Nancy Finsaas (Duane), Julie Frediani (Joe), Charlene Newman (Joe), Cheryl Entenman (Jerry) and Laurie Newman (Mike). Ted also is survived by 10 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren.
After serving in the Army, Ted worked for O.E.C.O from 1955 to 1992, retiring after 37 years.
Ted, Jean and their 5 girls enjoyed 54 years on the homestead he built for his family. Ted spent hours each day working outside, and always planted a huge garden. His daffodils brightened our homes each spring. Ted had an incredible sense of humor, and his wit will be greatly missed.
