Jason Holfinger

April 24, 1980 — July 13, 2018

Jason Scot Holfinger, 38, of Covington, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, July 13, 2018 at his residence.  He was born April 24, 1980, in Piqua, to Doyle S. and Connie L. (Emerich) Holfinger of Piqua.  Jason married Lisa B. (Couch) Holfinger on August 11, 2007, and she survives in Covington.

Jason will also be missed and remembered by his children, Josiah, Emerich, and Zoë Holfinger, all at home in Covington; his grandmother, Evelyn Holfinger of Covington; his father-in-law, David (Fawn) Couch; mother-in-law, Elise (Mark) Byers; brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, Michael (Kimberly) Couch, Phillip (Bekah) Couch, Jordan (Rhiannon) Couch, and Matthew (Jordan) Couch; many nieces and nephews who adored him; lots of close friends; and his second family at the Troy Fire Department.  He was preceded in death by grandparents Robert Holfinger, Virginia and Charles Emerich, and Shirley Couch.

Jason was a 1998 graduate of Piqua High School and earned his fire science degree from Hocking College.  He served six years in the Ohio National Guard, and had served as a firefighter with the City of Troy Fire Department since 2013, where he was active on many special teams.

Growing up, Jason was an 11-year member of 4-H and was active in the Farm Bureau Youth Group.  He was a 4-H camp counselor and loved bareback riding, writing, and reading, especially the Bible.  He was talented at forging and welding, very skilled at making many projects and working with his hands.  Most importantly, Jason was a loving and devoted husband, father, son, and friend to many.  His family and children meant everything to him.  His amazing life cannot be summed up in such few words.

A funeral service will be held at 10 a.m. Thursday, July 19, at Koinos Christian Fellowship, 722 Grant St., Troy, with Pastor Jonathan Newman officiating.  Burial will follow in Miami Memorial Park, Covington.  Visitation will be from 3-8 p.m. Wednesday at Koinos Christian Fellowship.  Full honors during the services will be performed by the Miami County Firefighters Honor Guard.  Please, in lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to a college fund to be set up for his children.  Arrangements are in care of Moore Funeral Home, Covington.  Online condolences may be left for the Holfinger family at www.moorefh.com.
