The Sheldon family invites neighbors and friends to a memorial service for Rev. Alberta Sheldon and Mrs. Lucille Sheldon Carlin Learn. The service will be held at the North Jackson Methodist Church on Saturday, July 14, 2007 at 10:30. Rev. Sheldon (6/12/16 – 1/21/07) of Live Oak, Florida and Mrs. Learn (2/21/30 – 1/25/07) of Meshoppen, PA were born and grew up near Thompson, PA.


Huntly Stone Holmes, 91, peacefully entered into rest at Albany, New York, Thursday, July 5, 2007. Born March 1,1916 in Yellow Stone National Park, WY, Huntly was the son of the late Carlton and Edith Holmes of Lanesboro, PA, and husband to his late wife Ora (Nori) Wharton Holmes, who passed away in June, 1987.

Huntly was employed as a Mechanical Engineer and held the position of General Manager at Stanadyne Corp. at Windsor, CT for several years. He was a very creative and inventive man and had an advanced knowledge of Laser Engineering. He was member of the Masons for several years, loved the outdoors and enjoyed fishing, hunting, boating and golfing. Huntly leaves us with the memory of a kind, generous and fun-loving man to his four children, eight grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

He was a dedicated and loving father to his four children; daughters, Nancy Holmes Roarke, Indian Orchard, MA and Marilyn Holmes Hamecher, Albany, NY, and sons, Richard C. Holmes and his wife Joan, West Hartland, CT, Robert H. Holmes, Suffield, CT. He was a kind and caring grandfather to eight grandchildren, Jay Baker and his wife, Dr. Heidi Gordon-Baker, Rick Holmes, Karen Holmes, Amy Thrall, Jennifer Thrall, Linnea Thrall Dimanché, Timothy Thrall and Zachary Holmes Bishop, and seven great-grandchildren, Ashley, Lindsey, Sarah, Nathan, Aaron, Christopher, and Norah. He also leaves his brother, Harry Dean Holmes and sister, Gertrude Block of Deerfield Beach, FL.

The family of Huntly wishes to convey a heartfelt thank you for all the staff, who cared for and loved him while he was entrusted in their care at St. Peter's Nursing and Rehabilitation Center at Albany, NY. They kept a constant loving watch over him for the last seven years of this life and we shall be forever grateful to all them.

There will be a memorial service at a later date at the discretion of the family. Those wishing to remember Huntly in a special way may send a memorial contribution to St. Peter's Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, Albany, NY.
