September 16, 1932 - May 23, 2024

Holyne Passman, age 91 and  a resident of Franklinton, passed away Thursday night May 23, 2024 at Riverside Medical Center after a brief illness. He was a Class of 1950 graduate of Franklinton High School and a longtime member of First Baptist Church of Franklinton. He was a United States Navy veteran during the Korean War era, serving his country as a radio operator, stationed in Hawaii and Taiwan for a time. He operated Passman Chevrolet in Franklinton, alongside his brother, for several years before working in accounting for Capital Welding Supplies, the Washington Parish Farmer’s Co-Op and later at Riverside Medical Center before retiring. Holyne and his wife Geraldine would then volunteer at the Louisiana Baptist Children’s Home serving their many clients with love and compassion. Earlier in life, he coached his sons and many other young men in Dixie Youth Baseball for many years. Holyne lived near the Bogue Chitto River, so he and his family spent countless hours fishing, boating and running trotlines. More recently, he enjoyed going to different businesses in town drinking coffee while visiting with his friends and other customers. He was forever a loving husband, father and grandfather.
