Gordie was born in Peoria, IL on December 3, 1960 to William and Imelda (Henkins) Holler. He married his love of his life, Lori Sherman, on June 22, 1991. She survives.
Also surviving are his children, Adam and William "Will" Holler; his brother, David (Shirley) Holler of Marquand, MO; and his half-brother, Thomas (Geri) Frew of Glendale Heights, IL. He was preceded in death by his parents; one brother, B. Jay Holler; and one nephew, Ryan Holler.
Gordie was a Manufacturing Engineer at J.T. Fennell Co. in Chillicothe, IL. He was called by his wife, "husband of the universe." His other nickname was "tough as nails" as he battled and won many health issues. He was a devoted father who stayed active in his boy's life. He coached and ran summer baseball for the years his boys played. He was involved in the boy scouts committee for many years and he made sure Adam and Will achieved the rank of Eagle Scout. He would make every effort to go wherever to watch the boys when they were in high school sports.
Gordie enjoyed golfing, playing cards and working in the garage. The best part of his life was vacationing with his wife and boys in Chetek, WI. He had many lifelong friends because of his wonderful character.
In lieu of flowers, the family would be honored to have memorials made to the family for Gordie's boy's college education.
