I worked with Bill at EC Roosevelt in the Physical Education department. I can still remember Bill getting his class in order by having them dress right. The boys would line up shoulder width apart . I also was the official scorekeeper for the boys basketball team. Great coach for sure! Bill will be missed

It saddened me to hear about the passing of my coach. Every time I reached out to him for advice in my coaching career he always had time. I truly know he enjoyed talking basketball and giving me his opinions. I last saw him in Indianapolis when the team was inducted in the HOF. I was so excited to see him and introduce my wife to him. So long coach! You will always be remembered as one of the good ones.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I played for Coach Holzbach on the 1970 State Basketball Championship Team. Not only was he a great Coach, he was a man of great character. His Bio speaks for itself. Every time I reached out to him, he was always there. Thanks Coach Holzbach, for helping create memories in my life that I'll never forget. You and your wife have been a blessing to me and my family. There's a place for people like Coach Holzbach and it's called Heaven. So long Coach, but never goodbye. Until we meet again. Love you Coach. 🙏🏾 ❤️
