Carl Alvin Holub, 90, passed away peacefully at home on Saturday January 16, 2021. He was born in Bridgeport, Ohio to Mary and Frank Lisk. Carl was later adopted by James Holub and identified him as his true father.
Carl graduated from high school in 1948 and joined the Air Force in 1949, serving in the Korean War from1949 through 1951. He was stationed in Liverpool, England and enjoyed telling stories of his first time away from home.

Although I never had the privilege of knowing Carl, I am very thankful for him because he had a daughter: Melissa Holub Hudson. We love you Melissa! And we're praying for you and your family as you grieve over your father's death. - Michael Leskowat, Pastor at First Baptist Church of Copan

Our sincere condolences to Rosalie, Carla, John, Melissa and family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Carl was truly my family hero. He was the first of the Potnick family cousins off to college. He next served as an icon of family life and success. His visits with his family home to Aunt Mary's (Carl's Mother) at Christmas time were enthralling, with stories of exciting ventures in Michigan. To a young cousin from the "valley", he seemed almost other-worldly...bigger than life! Some of the greatest thrills were summer road trips and visits to Carl's with Aunt Mary. There are fond memories of fishing, boating, and tours of the Kellogg's cereal factory, but most of all, lots of laughter! They say our spirit lives on through those we have touched in some way. Though I morn his passing and will miss him, Carl's spirit will remain alive through me and the many others he has touched so kindly along the way.
