PARKER CITY – Leonard D. “Wimpy” Holly, 93, passed away on Monday morning, February 8, 2021 at his residence.

He was born on April 3, 1927 in Portland, the youngest of 7 children to Emerson and Olive (Offill) Holly and he served his country honorably in the US Army during WWII stationed in Italy.

At a young age, his love of hamburgers earned him the nickname “Wimpy”. He worked for Westinghouse/ABB for 31 years until his retirement in 1991. He attended New Hope Church in Muncie and Harris Chapel of the Nazarene.  Wimpy loved helping his son-in-law farm, driving tractor and trucks. He also loved baseball and football and could tell you any facts related to the sports.

Surviving are one daughter, Cinda L. Oren (husband, William “Greg”) of Parker City; two grandsons, Chad M. Oren (companion, Melissa) of Losantville and Brandon C. Oren of Parker City; one great-granddaughter, Holly M. Oren; and several nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents; his wife, Willadeen (Hale) Holly on June 30, 2014; two brothers, Willard Holly and John Charles Holly; and four sisters, Genever Martin, Gertrude Rinker, Beulah Steed and Velma Green.

Private family services will be held with burial to follow at Union Windsor Cemetery with full military honors by the Veterans of Delaware County.

Memorial Contributions may be directed to A.R.F., 1209 W. Riggin Road, Muncie, IN 47303.
