Obituary of Arthur M. Holz
Age 85, of Joliet, peacefully went to meet the Man upstairs on November 3, 2020. He was born July 6, 1935, in Orland Park, IL, the son of the late Genevieve (nee Pekin) and Arthur Holz. Arthur graduated from Orland Park High School and shortly after, proudly served his country in the United States Army. He dedicated his career as an Assembly Line Supervisor to the Ford Motor Company for many years.
As a young man, Arthur worked diligently to get his pilot’s license while working at the Prosperi Airport in Tinley Park and continued to indulge his love of flying throughout the years. Never one for idle hands, he also enjoyed tinkering and visiting flea markets.
Arthur is survived by his brothers, Nobert Holz and Dick (Jill) Holz; his sisters, Mary Aufmann and Nora (George) House; he is also survived by many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
Preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Tom.
