Glenn Randall “Randy” Holcomb, 74, of Nashville, Tennessee passed away on December 22, 2017 after an extended fight with cancer. He faced his illness the same way he faced all obstacles in his life – courageously. Randy was predeceased in 2009 by his wife, Judy, and is survived by his children, Jennifer Holcomb Pitts and husband Kevin, Allison Holcomb Harris and husband Jim and three grandchildren, Alex, Allison and James Pitts.
Born in Lexington, TN, he was the only son of the late James and Virginia Holcomb and grandson of the late Samuel and Irene Holcomb and the late Van and Imogene Watson – all of Lexington.
Randy was a graduate of Lexington High School and attended West Point and Memphis State University before he enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps and served in the Vietnam War. After his military service, he returned to Tennessee to complete his education and received his B.S. from UT Knoxville in 1968.
A board certified public accountant with the state of Tennessee, he began his career at the accounting firm, Haskins & Sells, before spending the rest of his career in management in the waste industry. First with Browning-Ferris Industries, Inc., then Sunray Services, Inc., USA Waste Services, Inc. and finally retiring from Waste Management, Inc. in 2001.
An avid outdoorsman, he had a passion for boating and hunting and was a life long member of Ducks Unlimited. He was a man who lived his life his way – with character, integrity and hard work. Because of his profound and deep loyalty to his family and friends, there was no better man to have in your corner.
A small family service was held at St George’s Episcopal Church in Nashville on December 27th. A burial service will be held this Saturday, April 14, at 11 a.m. in the Holcomb plot at Lexington Cemetery. A reception following the burial will be held at Stewart’s Coffee Corner at 58 S. Main Street.
