Remembering Beth Holtz

Beth Holtz, Honorary Monogram Winner and Philanthropist, passes away.

As we mourn the loss of Coach Holtz’s wife, Beth, I’ve seen some lovely remembrances over the past couple of days. Although I only had the honor of meeting her once, her hug was warm, and she left quite an impression on me.

She was sweet and sassy all at once. (She had to be to live with Coach!)

She was a mother to many, well beyond her own four children.

She was a fighter, fighting throat cancer for more than two decades. And she was always trying to improve the world around her, as seen by her involvement with many charities.

She was Coach’s everything, and they were married just three weeks shy of 59 years. They were blessed to have had each other, that is for sure.

Of all the messages I’ve seen over the last day or so, this one has stuck with me the most.

Even though Coach is mourning the loss of the love of his life, he is still trying to give back to his players. That speaks volumes of the kind of person Coach Holtz is at his very core. Always trying to help others.

Coach, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. May you find some peace in all of the wonderful memories you and Beth shared together.

Here are some more thoughts, prayers and messages for Coach.

Rest in peace, Beth.
