JC grew up on the Never Summer Ranch in Grand Lake. He graduated from Middle Park High School, joined the army and served in Germany. He worked several jobs in Grand County. He eventually went back to ranching in the Fraser Valley.
He is survived by parents John & Mary Holzwarth, siblings Steve, Howard, and Julia.
We appreciate the support and caring of all our friends and neighbors. A memorial is taking place at 1 p.m., on Oct. 19, 2013 on the ranch in Fraser.
