Robert M. Holler, the son of the late J.C. Lester and Marion Holler was a loving, generous, hard working, handsome and fun loving man. He went above and beyond, not only as a father, grandfather, brother, son, uncle and friend, but as a human being. He felt that being kind, decent, trust-worthy, helpful and good to others should apply to everyone that he met. Very seldom, did he turn away the opportunity to make a situation better for whomever he could, if he could find the way; Especially, if it were for a plate of hot food accompanied by a bowl of ice cream!

Everyone would always recognize him happily rambling up the road in his cherry picker truck, blaring Christian music, toting Bailiff- his side-kick German Shepherd dog, that shared in all of his daily ventures. Traveling all over the region as “Bob the Sign Man”. He was not a shy man when it came to a conversation. He had the gift of gab better than anyone and a pocket full of charm to go with it. Keeping clients, many of whom became life-long friends, strangers and loved ones, they were all enchanted for hours with adventures, historical accounts and of course, LOTS of advice.
He was a lyrical poet in his everyday speech, rhyming his way through ordering breakfast and having a nickname for almost everyone... writing love notes to the love of his life “Baby Bear”, talking to “Nadine, Nadine, my little queen”, his dear friend Joe “Joesy” or his working aside his very loved son, “Mort.” He gave each of our mundane experiences with him, a dash of sugar and a hint of sparkle with his ‘Bob Hollerisms‘: “Holy cats!”, “Scream, don’t holler!”, “You little pea picker, you!!”, “Man alive!”, and for me, “I love you, little girl.” ... that will never fall upon a pair of ears the same way, if ever again.
Throughout his life, his passion and purpose was that of Gods’ word. He lived his life as a true Christian and dedicated his intentions praising Gods’ name. The formidable years of his faith began at Mount Olivet Campmeeting where he dedicated his lifetime of summers in fellowship and service. Nowhere, did his heart and soul rest more than there. One can’t argue who or what belongs there more, Robert Holler or the breeze that the trees push down the side of the mountain. They equally whisper a blessing from God to Mount Olivet and the community there.
Bob is presently in Heaven rejoicing and laughing along with his beloved wife, Betty Lou Holler, his son, Robert R.S. Holler, granddaughter, Olivia B. Gerardino, his brother, Kermit Holler, his sister, Marian Sariano, and his brother Charles Holler.
He has left behind his remaining sister, Barbara Snell, his daughter, Ginger Eanes Rupert (Scott Shearer), granddaughter, Amy Gerardino Rhoads Bogle (Sean Bogle), four great-grandchildren, Carson Bogle, Ethan Rhoads, Anna Beatrice Rhoads-Brandt (Benjamin Brandt) and Harrison Rhoads (Sarah Maldonado-Rhoads), two great-great grandchildren Cora Rhoads and Edison Brandt and nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and lives that he has, even momentarily touched in many countless and special ways, to have the ability to smile upon the memories that he lovingly left for us to cherish.
