Baby Dean Gregory Holzmann, 20 months old, of Lenoir went to be with Jesus on Thursday, Sept. 9, 2021, at Caldwell UNC Health Care. He was born Jan. 9, 2020, in Burke County to Dean G. Holzmann and Reva Ashley Bolick. He was preceded in death by his maternal great-grandfather, Gregory C. Bolick Sr.
Baby Dean was a happy, vibrant baby and made everyone around him smile. He was curious and interested in his surroundings. He was so beautiful that people were drawn to him. He was taken from us too soon.
We didn’t have enough time with you, Baby Dean. We miss you very much. We are heartbroken. You are our angel and we will see you in heaven.
Survivors in addition to his parents include his maternal grandparents, Leslie Penley and Gus Bolick, all of Lenoir; paternal grandparents, Jean Mangano and husband Frank of Hickory, and Dean Holzmann and wife Jola of Bayville, New York; and several uncles and other family members who loved him dearly.
Funeral services will be held Thursday, Sept. 16, 2021, at 2 p.m. at Whitnel First Baptist Church conducted by the Rev. Stuart White. Interment will immediately follow the service in the church cemetery.
The family will receive friends from 1 to 2 p.m. one hour prior to the service at the church.
