The Overall Boy is designed by Charlotte Holt for her husband Rev. David Holt, D.V.M. and hangs at Ozark Animal Hospital, 2500 North 18th Street, Ozark, AR 72949 which is also known as Highway 23 home of the scenic "Pig Trail".
The Overall Boy was chosen in memory of David's father, Rufus A. Holt, Sr. who worked on a farm. He was always wearing Big Smith brand of overalls. Rufus instilled in David a work ethic that was second to none and to be a provider of your family.
David married Charlotte Morgan (his high school sweetheart) in 1979. David and Charlotte raised 3 boys during the college years and finally settled in Ozark, Arkansas. D.J., Daniel, and Denver all graduated from Ozark High School and showed Charolais cattle for a number of years, being involved in the Arkansas Jr. Association and the American International Charolais Association.
David graduated high school from Mountainburg, Arkansas in 1978 (which is represented by the “moon over the mountain” due to Mountainburg’s geographical location).
David graduated from University of Arkansas in Fayetteville in 1983 where he was a member of the Livestock Judging Team (which is represented by the “Horse”).
David furthered his education at Louisiana State University by receiving a “Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine” in 1987 (represented by the Veterinary Medicine symbol and the Horse).
David started working at Ozark Animal Hospital immediately after graduation. He became the owner of Ozark Animal Hospital in February 1988 and has continued to serve the areas of Franklin, Crawford, Sebastian, Madison, Logan, and Johnson Counties.
David became licensed and ordained Minister of the Freewill Baptist denomination in 2001 after being called by God to proclaim the Gospel (represented by the Holy Bible). Matthew 6:33 is David’s life verse.
