Mike Holland (Earl Michael Holland) 64, of Lake Mary, Florida passed away on Monday, April 24, 2017, surrounded by loved ones at Florida Hospital Orlando.

Mike was born on December 13, 1952 in Barwick Georgia. Mike graduated from Fletcher Academy and was a Corpsman in the Navy. Mike and Gloria started their own pool company in 1995. Mike enjoyed giving a helping hand to the community and many different charities over the years. He loved to help people, especially children so it is no surprise that Boys Town Central Florida became very near and dear to his heart. So much so that he became a board member for Boys Town, sponsored many golf tournaments and Christmas Candy Cane 5k runs. Mike loved Boys Town for the work they do with the kids and for the work they do in the community.

Mike was a devoted husband, father and grandfather, his most prized role. Those who knew him loved his quick wit, sense of humor and his huge heart. While we are heartbroken that he is no longer with us, there is comfort in knowing that he is free of pain and at peace with God.
