On October 1, 2020, Franklin “Frank” Delano Combs of Warsaw, Virginia - loving husband, father and grandfather passed away at the age of 83. Frank was born in Richmond, Virginia on August 9, 1937. He was preceded in death by his parents, James & Mary Combs, of Richmond. He is survived by his wife “the love of his life” Virginia Combs. They were married for almost 50 years. He is also survived by his daughters, Penney Pittman (Jimmy) of Lancaster, VA; and Misty O’Bier (Danny) of Callao, VA; and 3 “much loved” grandchildren: Robbie Dawson, Jackie Dawson, and Daniel O’Bier.

Frank was a member of Totuskey Baptist Church, of Warsaw, Virginia. He was in the U.S. Army National Guard Reserves for eight years as a Communication Specialist. His professional career consisted of being a 7-UP Distributor, as well as working for the Coca-Cola Company and Parr’s TV. Frank went on from there to open his own satellite business from which he retired. During his retirement, he loved to fish and he grew a huge garden which he shared with everyone. He enjoyed tinkering in the shed and had a passion for taking anything that wasn’t running and make it run like new again.

Frank’s most favorite pastime though, was being with his family, telling stories and especially teaching his three grandchildren everything he knew. He imparted the value of family and hard work to his grandchildren. He cherished his two daughters and his two sons-in-law. He talked with everyone he passed and never met a stranger.

All funeral services will be handled by Welch Funeral Home, 10300 Richmond Road, Warsaw, VA 22572. The family wishes to express that all memorial contributions be made to any charity of your choice in honor of Frank. A celebration of his life and accomplishments will be held at a later date.
