Timothy Marshall Holabird Jr.

Timothy M. Holabird, age 77 of Doyle, succumbed after a long illness Tuesday, March 6th.  His parents, Tim and Mary Holabird of Pasadena, his wife, Sharon, and his brother Dennis of Oregon preceded him in death.

He worked for Congressman Doug LaMalfa for the past three years as a Field Representative for Sierra, Plumas, Lassen and Modoc Counties.  He was responsible for the same counties the previous four years for Congressman Tom McClintock.

Tim was responsible for working with Municipalities, County Supervisors, the Forest Service, BLM, National Park Service and the Bureau of Reclamation.  In addition, Tim helped constituents, businesses and ranchers with difficulties concerning the federal government.  He traveled over a quarter of a million miles during the past seven years representing these four counties.  He was also an elected Trustee of the Ft. Sage Unified School District for many years.

Prior to that, Tim was involved in agriculture for 27 years in the Midwest and the Southwest ultimately moving to Doyle, California in 1997.  There, he and his wife bought a ranch. Tim, a Navy Veteran, has been active politically the majority of his adult life.  He began as a Young Republican in Los Angeles County helping to consolidate precinct organizations, run candidate Town Hall Meetings and other public events.  He became a member of the Lassen County Republican Central Committee in the 1990’s and was chairman for several years.  In recent years, the Committee has more than doubled in size bringing in many new members.  The Committee has become an active supporter of the State Party and now participates in all State Conventions.

A celebration of life will be held in Susanville on Thursday, March 29th at Walton’s Colonial Chapel at 2 p.m. followed by a reception with family and friends at the American Legion in Susanville.  His internment will be in the family plot at the San Gabriel Cemetery.


Why Pre-plan?

Thinking about your own funeral leaves most people feeling a little uneasy, but more adults are finding that pre-planning a funeral offers great emotional and even financial security for them and their families. With pre-planning, families find comfort in knowing that the funeral reflects what their loved one wanted. It also gives them peace of mind to not have to make important decisions at a stressful time. Click here to visit Walton’s Funeral Home
