On Saturday, August 1, 2020, God took Fredrick “Dale” Holzhausen, 88, of Shelbyville, into His everlasting arms, while surrounded by his family at MHP.


He was born February 1, 1932 in Decatur County, the son of Fred and Lena (Kruse) Holzhausen. He married Ruby Williamson on February 16, 1951 and she survives. Other survivors include his son, Stephen (Kristy) Holzhausen, and daughter, Regina Holzhausen, both of Shelbyville; grandchildren, Michael (Dana) Holzhausen of Greenfield, Bambi (Jason) Garrison of Shelbyville, Christopher (Ashley) Holzhausen of Columbus and Andrew Holzhausen; great grandchildren, Tristian, Ryleigh, Chloe, Macy, Jake, Colton, Julie, Elle, Parker and Kenny.

Dale was a veteran, having served in the US Army in Germany during the Korean Conflict. He was proud to be chosen for a 2016 Honor Flight to Washington, DC in recognition of his service to his country.
