Joe Holland

It is with great sadness that we share the news of the loss of Joe Holland who died on Friday 16th October.

Joe was the very supportive husband of the founder of STECS Mrs Nellie Holland ( who sadly passed away 10 years ago ). After Nellie’s death Joe continued to live at Woodside farm on his own.

Having no children of their own their lives revolved around their Scottish Terriers who were Nellie and Joe’s children. Joe’s hobbies for many years was steam railways and of course Scottish Terriers.

Joe had a witty sense of humour and enjoyed being ‘gate keeper’ at the STECS garden parties chatting at all and sundries. Latterly due to Joe’s health not being all that good after Nellie passing away he found it difficult to attend a lot of the STECS functions.

Joe will be sadly missed by many of the STECS members and people in the Scottie world.
