CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Early Thursday morning, Trident Medical Center held an honor walk for a 29-year-old father of three children.

Justin Holt was a native of Tennessee who moved to the Lowcountry one year ago and also leaves behind a wife.

The walks give family and hospital staff a chance to line the halls and show their respect, as well as support the gift of organ donation.

Holt’s parents described him as a very giving person.
