Harold E. "H.E." Holinsworth Jr., age 76, died Saturday,
March 20, 2021 at his home in Humboldt, Kansas. H.E.
was born August 13, 1944 in Stillwater, Oklahoma to
Harold E. and Betty L. (Kirby) Holinsworth Sr. He grew
up in the family businesses, one of which, was a
motorcycle dealership. His passion for motorcycles was
well known. He and his father took many road trips on
their bikes as members of the Stillwater Road Kings
Motorcycle Club. H.E. was known to do a little straight
track and scrambles racing. Graduating in 1962 from
Stillwater High School, he pursued a technical degree
from Okmulgee Technical College (now OSUIT) as an
auto-body technician. After finishing school, he started
in the body shop business. After some time in this work,
he went to work for Wonder Bread/ITT Continental
Baking Company which moved him around the Midwest,
settling in Humboldt, Kansas in 1973. H.E. made
lifelong friends working for Wonder Bread and found his
real passion: driving an over-the-road truck. He did this
for 20+ years, retiring from Schiber Trucking in 2012
with over one million accident-free miles while hauling
hazardous waste.

In 1960, he married Judith C. Ritter in Drumright,
Oklahoma and had two children, Cindy and Steve.
