It is with a heavy heart that we share David Holten passed away on Sunday, March 14, 2020, due to cancer. We are grateful for and blessed by his contributions as a friend of Carey, Board member and Treasurer. He was instrumental in helping Carey’s management with its strategic turnaround. Wherever David served, he would often express his love for God’s people and for Scripture. He has left a legacy of Christian devotion in the hearts of many.
