Mr. Monroe Holmes, age 87, who was known to many of his friends as "Money" was born July 1, 1922 to the late Mrs. Lu Bradley and Mr.Doc Holmes in Marianna, FL, where he is survived by numerous family members. He died peacefully in his Milton home on Thursday, May 20, 2010.

Brother Holmes was preceded in death by his wife, Irma.

He found a loving friend who stuck "closer than a brother" in Mr. Harold Webb and was loved very much by the Webb family. It also made him happy to have found faithful friends in Brother Frank Clausell and Clifford Hill, and a lifelong friend in Deacon Willie Bailey.
He was an active member of St. John Divine Missionary Baptist Church where he served as a Trustee and a member of the Adult Choir until he could no longer attend because of illness.

He was an avid supporter of the Milton High School Panther football team. It was not uncommon to see him arrive at both home and away games with his bullhorn on his walker, ready to sound "The Panther Charge!"

Brother Holmes was an active Santa Rosa County Democrat who participated in almost all democratic functions and supported all democratic candidates. He particularly enjoyed riding on the democratic floats in the Martin Luther King and Milton Christmas parades. Mild mannered and soft spoken, he was admired by many friends in the community.

He will be missed by all who knew him.
