Obit boughDwight Holobaugh, age 73, born June 6, 1944 grew up in Tipp City, Ohio. He joined the Army-82nd Airborne division. Following his service he married his 7th grade sweetheart Joyce.  Graduating Cum Laude from Northern Arizona he became a Civil Engineer with expertise as a Utilities Specialist.  He owned his own consulting business and later retired in Maple Valley.  Dwight loved sports so being a youth football and baseball coach in Woodinville, where he raised his children, was a perfect fit for him.  Through coaching he made a positive impact on many young lives.  Dwight loved vacationing with the family, duck hunting, and fishing wherever he could find a good fishing hole. Dwight is survived by his wife, Joyce of 52 years of marriage. His two children, daughter Tara Travers (Husband-Mike), son Trent Holobaugh (Wife-Christina) and twin grandsons Hayden and Hunter.

He passed away very peacefully with excellent care from the University Of Washington Medical Center on January 29, 2018. Dwight was the recipient of a heart transplant which gave him 20 extra years with his family.  Please consider being an organ donor. Per his wishes there will be no public services.
