AHCA Mourns the Passing of Nancy Holt

The extended AHCA family is saddened by the news that Nancy Holt has passed away. The wife of legendary coach Charlie Holt and mother of Brad (University of New England head coach) and Brenda, Nancy was a unique figure in the New England and national hockey community. Beyond her visibility in the UNH community, Nancy helped Charlie with administrative duties in the early years of the American Hockey Coaches Association, completing many membership duties from the kitchen of their home. Somewhere in the AHCA archives there is the original AHCA banner, sewn together by Nancy herself.

Services will be held on Monday, September 5th at 3:00 PM at the Community Church of Durham. An informal gathering will take place after the memorial service at Brenda Holt Mullaney's home in Durham. A formal obituary can be found in the September 1 edition of Foster's Daily Democrat.

The family suggests memorial contributions be sent to the UNH Foundation, Inc. and designated to the Charles E. Holt Endowed Athletic Scholarship Fund.
