Brad Holcomb went home to be with the Lord on Thursday, May 9, 2013.
He was born on February 16, 1957, in San Diego, CA, to Gordon and Loretta Holcomb. In 1985, he moved to Odessa, TX. During his years in Odessa, he was heavily involved in media and broadcasting, initially working as the program director of KODM and then later becoming a part-owner in KCDQ.
After success in radio, Brad ventured into residential and commercial security systems where he remained for the past 15 years as the Odessa branch manager of 1st Alarm Security.
In 1987, he met and married the love of his life, Mary Ann, and they were happily married for the remaining 26 years. In 1992, the couple had twin boys Justin and Austin, whom he adored.
Brad was a devoted and loving father who loved Jesus, the community, and his family. When asked how he was doing, his response was always "living a dream." He never met a stranger and was always trying to help others become better; always leading by example and helping others succeed. His positive energy, honesty, and personality made him well respected amongst his peers. He loved going to the lake, golfing with his boys, the serenity of the ocean and the mountains. He took great pride in his work and always did the right thing with a smile.
Brad is preceded in death by his parents, Gordon and Loretta Holcomb, his brother Gordon Holcomb and his niece Janell Holcomb.
He is survived by his loving wife Mary Ann, twin sons Austin and Justin, brother Glynn Holcomb, nephews Gordon, Blake, and Trent Holcomb, all of Odessa, and nephew and niece Dalton and Danielle Holcomb, both of San Angelo; nieces and nephew Kassi Scheeler, Matt Roche and Devlin Longmire, all of Helena, MT; aunt and uncle Fred and Janell Spitz of Oklahoma City, OK; sisters and brothers-in-law Wanda and Marvin Mace, Dennis and Pam Longmire, Lee Longmire, and Karla Roche, all of Helena, MT; special friends Debi and Dwayne Hays of Odessa, TX; and his 1st Alarm family; Mom and Dad Longmire of Yuma, AZ; and numerous cousins.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in his memory to the Texas Department of Public Safety, Safe Driving Campaign or to the Brad Holcomb Memorial Scholarship Fund at St. John's Episcopal School, 401 N. County Rd West, Odessa, TX 79763.
