In the memories of:
Matt Holderman

Sunday night, we lost a very special friend.   Matt Holderman lost his life in a tragic accident.   Matt was a very special person and a member of our club.   Matt generously gave his time and friendship to our club and we are devastated at the loss of our friend.
Matt is survived by his wife, Jill and their two sons, Matthew and Mason.   He also leaves behind his mother, Janet and two brothers and two sisters and their families.   Matt's best friend, Jim Agard, is also a member of our club.
There will be calling hours at Newkirk Funeral Home in Canaan Saturday, August 24th from 10-12.   Funeral services will immediately follow at 12:00.   
A reception will be held at the Club for family and friends immediately following the service.
It is our chance to give back to Matt and his family and we will be organizing the reception at the Club.    We will coordinate food and beverages so that the family will not have to worry about this.
Food and beverage donations will be needed.   Please respond if you are able to provide any help with this.   We will also need volunteers to help set up before and during the reception.
A Go Fund Me Campaign has been organized to benefit the family of Matt Holderman. You may contribute and post messages to the family at:

Please email or contact me with any questions at

Your help and friendship is very much appreciated during this extremely sorrowful time for the family.

Thank you for your support.

Matt Holderman
