Ken Holmes - JFK Tour guide passes away

Recommended Posts


Ken Holmes, owner of Southwestern Historical Tours, passed away Sunday night.

Many of you will remember Ken, as he has been involved with the NID Conference for every year. He has also given many tours of the JFK Assassination, along with Bonnie and Clyde, Texas History, Dallas: Then and Now, and other tours. For many years, I have helped with the JFK (and other tours).

He has been extremely ill the last couple of years, and simply succumbed to that illness, in his sleep overnight. He has a son, Jason and a daughter, Kristen. He just turned 60 back in May.

Anyone who has scheduled a tour for the future with Ken, Freda Dillard and I will attempt to fulfill those tour commitments.

The service will be Friday, at 11:00 AM. It will be a Graveside service, at Grove Hill Cemetery, here in Dallas, TX.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you send donations of "Badge of Honor" memorial fund, for fallen Law Enforcement officers, in Ken Holmes' memory.


About midway down the pay you can specify "Dedication or Gift" where you can put in Ken Holmes.
