Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Mr. Keith Holder, age 63, passed away on August 13, 2022, after a two-week hospital stay from complications of diabetes. Until the last few years, Keith resided in the County Line area of Barrow County where his family were faithful members of Nazareth United Methodist Church. He was a 1976 graduate of Winder Barrow High School. In more recent years, Keith moved to Lawrenceville, GA after marrying his longtime companion, Holly Beasley.
In 1980, Keith graduated magna cum laude from the University of Georgia School of Journalism. Following graduation, Keith became a free-lance film critic where his sharp wit and brutal honesty jeopardized the publication of his movie reviews in newspapers dependent on theater advertising for their revenue. Nevertheless, Keith always gave an honest appraisal of the films he reviewed and maintained an appreciation of classic movies and film making throughout his life. Keith’s other interests included the Pittsburgh Steelers, Georgia Bull Dogs, Nascar, and current events.
Keith was preceded in death by his father, B. E. Holder; his mother, Muriel Holder Guffin; his stepfather, James P. Guffin; and his aunt, Mae Opal Langford.
Keith is survived by his wife, Holly Beasley; his cousin Andrea Langford Williams; his cousin Peggy Evans; his stepsister Glenda Bannister; his cousin Vicki Sweeny; his cousin Jannie House Jennings; his cousin William House; his cousin Ben House; his cousin Chris House; and his beloved Collies.
