Obituary

Edward J. Holtkamp

 KALIDA - Edward J. Holtkamp, 93, of Kalida, died peacefully at 12:45 p.m. Friday, September 17, 2021 at Mercy Health St. Rita's Medical Center, Lima. He was born in Kalida on February 28, 1928 to the late Edward and Mary (Stechschulte) Holtkamp. He was preceded in death by his sisters, Sister Catherine Mary Holtkamp, CDP, and Margaret (Holtkamp) Pizzurro. His sister, Esther (Holtkamp) Wenzel, survives him.

 He was the beloved uncle to 10 nieces and nephews and 16 great nieces and nephews who also survive him.  They have many fond memories of summers in Kalida with Uncle Ed, including golfing (of course!), bowling, playing putt-putt, hunting night crawlers, fishing, going to the park and having root beer floats at the carry-out.  He will be greatly missed.

 Mr. Holtkamp was a co-owner of Holtkamp-Fortman Hardware in Kalida, a United States Army Veteran and an active member of St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Kalida. He was a charter member of Country Acres Golf Club (Moose Landing Country Club), a member of the Kalida Volunteer Fire Department, and a huge Kalida High School Wildcats basketball fan who rarely missed a home game.

 A funeral Mass will be held at 11:00 a.m. Saturday, September 25, 2021 at St. Michael’s Catholic Church, Kalida with Father Mark Hoying officiating. Burial will follow in St. Michael's Cemetery, Kalida. Visitation will be from 10:00 a.m. until the time of service at the church.
