John Austin Holbrook
John Austin Holbrook was born in Bellingham on October 19th, 1962. He entered into heaven on January 14th, 2023. John lived in Bellingham his entire life and was proud to be a “Southsider." He graduated from Sehome High School in 1981.
John loved Bellingham Bay, treasure-hunting for bottles and other local artifacts, fishing, antiques, family history, rooting for the M’s and the Dawgs. He was a kind, gentle soul with a twinkle in his eye and a quiet understated nature. His smile and dry sense of humor will be missed by all who knew him.
He was preceded in death by his parents Wyck and Marilyn Holbrook and his nephew Christopher Keefe. He is survived by his loving family: Chad and Kim, Alison and Lance, Annalee and Manley, Ruth and Pam, Gregory, Garrett and Becca, Nick, Katie, Blaine and Devon, Kelley, Brody, Harper, Lila, Grant and Arlene, Wayne and Sue, and many cousins and friends.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations in honor of John may be made to Lydia Place PO Box 28487 Bellingham WA 98228, or to a charity of your choosing.
