William (Bill) Russell Holland, age 59, of Monticello, passed away on February 28, 2021 after a valiant battle with pancreatic cancer. Bill was born on April 14, 1961 to Norma and Russell Holland in Anoka, MN.

After graduating from St. Michael High School, in 1979, he went on to study engineering at The University of Minnesota. His career was in electrical engineering, most recently working for Cummins in Fridley, for the past 14 years. In 2006, he met Linda Weddel (Eull), and they wed in July 2008. Together they have 5 children, Andrea Glessman (Josh), Mitchell Holland (Denise), Hailey Olson (Christopher), Brittany Kolles (Ryan), Shawn Weddel (Anastasia); as well as 9 grandchildren who he absolutely adored.

His family meant more to him than anything else in the world. Bill was gentle and quiet with the most tender heart. He was the man who would anticipate and tend to the needs of others before himself, his selflessness brought him extreme joy.

Bill was also passionate about anything outdoors, especially hunting, 4 wheeling and bonfires and could often be found tinkering in the garage or helping others. Anyone who knew Bill knew that he was the most loving father, husband and grandfather a family could ask for.

Bill was preceded in death by his father, Russell Holland.

He is survived by his wife, Linda Holland; his children and grandchildren; mother, Norma Holland; siblings, Wayne Holland (Dori), Wes Holland (Jeanne), Deb Raab (Tim), Dawn Schmidt (Dave); as well as many nieces, nephews, family and friends.

The family requests that all flowers and cards be sent to The Peterson Chapel in St. Michael, 300 Main St N.

A celebration of life will be held Saturday, March 13, 2021 from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM, with a service starting at 12:00 PM, at The Peterson Chapel St. Michael-Albertville Funeral Home.

Services will be livestreamed at: https://meet.google.com/jar-zhwu-yac

    Linda, Bill will be missed by us all. He was a great neighbor. He was there any time I needed something. He always had the snow removed from my driveway before I could even start the snowblower and then he was on to the next driveway in the neighborhood. We will miss him. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the family.
