According to CBN News, Holbrook passed away after battling both lung and bone cancer. No other details regarding his death were immediately released to the public.
He and his wife, Donna Holbrook, dedicated much of their lives working for ICEJ. Donna still currently serves as the executive director.
ICEJ’s main objectives including supporting Israel, teaching all nations of God’s purpose, and being an active voice of reconciliation between different religions. Their ultimate hope is to reach every society with the Christian testimony and support churches in all nations, according to their website.
"Holbrook was a wonderful friend of Israel and the Jewish community in Canada. Over the years when he saw a need, he was quick to support it, such as Save a Child's Heart (SACH), initiating family programs for visiting Israel doctors and families trained in Toronto, and establishing the Sunnybrook TIA unit for heart and stroke emergency,” the organization said in a statement to CBN News.
“His love for music/opera was demonstrated by founding the Holbrook Family University Scholarship for Opera Students and more," the ICEJ spokesperson added.
Please pray for Holbrook’s friends, family, and loved ones during this difficult time. He left behind a great faith legacy and will be missed by so many people.
