J.C.--one of the MOST colorful characters this valley has known & I feel lucky to have enjoyed many thought-provoking conversations with him over the years. After reading your family history, yesterday, as I was trying to get to this page, my understanding of his frustrations with this world became quite clear. He was a rancher, through & through. He poured his heart & soul into the land he cared for--and this valley. The world would be a much better place if there were more folks like J.C., who stand up for what they truly believe in, and aren't willing to back down when faced with adversity. My heart goes out to you Holzwarths, lucky to have had such an outstanding brother. His spirit is free, to ranch the lands of the great beyond. Peace.

I, too, was saddened and taken aback by the news of JC's passing. I always enjoyed his grin, our conversations, and his perceptive take on life and the world. His standing up for what the valley should and could be are much appreciated, too. The Fraser Valley is poorer for his absence. My heartfelt condolences to all his family and friends. Keep on rockin' the boat, JC!

I was so very sorry to hear about J.C. I had not seen him in some time (as I'm in Denver), but I immediately remembered the big smile he always flashed (somewhat devilish at times) and his unique presence. He will be missed and remembered by so many in our valley... but especially by all of you, his family. Our thoughts are with you. Love Nancy, Rob and Kat Klancke
