Austin Holderman Obituary

Austin Holderman, 26 years old, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, January 16, 2024 in Elkhart, IN. Austin was born on December 24, 1997 in South Bend, to Ira and Tarri (Gillinger) Holderman, who survive. 

Along with his parents, Austin is survived by his siblings, Brandon Holderman, Shauna (Steven) Tidwell, Savannah Holderman, Paige (Thomas) Gillinger, Alexandria (Duane) Holderman, and his twin, Zackery (Kayla) Holderman; his grandparents, Sharon Jones and Ira Holderman, Sr.; nieces and nephews, Hannah, Brandon, Ashton, Konnor, Kylie, Sammy, Ryan, Carter, Ezmia, DJ, and Onyx; and his great-niece, Lakota. He is also survived by many aunts, uncles, and other extended family members. Austin is preceded in death by his grandmother, Kay Holderman; and his cousin, Lilly Bryant.

Austin was a very caring and kind-hearted person who always put others ahead of himself. He had a great sense of humor, and would always joke around. Austin loved to draw, color, eat food – especially Chinese food, watching Supernatural, listening to his music, and just started growing in his faith and reading his Bible. Above all, he loved hanging out with his friends and family. He enjoyed chillin in the garage with Ronnie and his dad, playing with Milo, his brother’s dog, and riding the electric scooters with his twin brother, Zack. He was an incredible person and he will be forever missed.

Friends and family will be received on Friday, January 19, 2024 from 2:00 pm – 4:30 pm at St. Joseph Funeral Home, 824 South Mayflower Road, South Bend, IN 46619 with a funeral service to begin at 4:30 pm.
