Daniel Keith Holt

July 22, 1993 ~ September 21, 2020 (age 27)


Daniel Keith Holt, age 27, was born July 22, 1993 in Stanly County, North Carolina. He was the son of Shelley R. Holt. Daniel was easy going, adventurous and generous with his time.  Daniel was loved dearly, and he will be missed.

He was educated in the Mecklenburg County public schools and was employed with Pizza Hut.

Daniel was a talented musician. He enjoyed listening to music, writing music and rapping. He also cherished the time he spent with family and friends and took pride in being the best brother and uncle possible. Despite being sick for much of his life from complications of Type 1 diabetes, Daniel tried to keep a smile on his face and push through the pain to enjoy himself as much as possible.

After Glow

I’d like the memory of me

to be a happy one.

I’d like to leave and after glow

of smiles when life is done.

I’d like to leave an echo

whispering softly down the ways,

of happy times and laughing times

and bright and sunny days.

I’d like the tears of those who grieve,

to dry before the sun

of happy memories

that I leave when life is done.
