John Frederick Coumbe Obituary
Coumbe, John Frederick
passed away August 15, 2016. He was best known for being a incredibly loving husband, father, brother, and friend. He had an infectious sense of humor - could make anyone laugh or smile. His energy could light up a room - and did just that many, many times. To know him was to love him. We know he was called to be angel; however, he will be incredibly missed by so many. John was born in Newark, Ohio on November 10, 1945. He graduated from Oklahoma University in Norman, Oklahoma. Up until the end of his life - one if his favorite things to look forward to was an OU game. The OU Sooners were one of his true passions for sure. His sense of style and impeccable taste led to his decades long career owning John's & Co, a well respected mens' clothing store in the valley. John's & Co. was one of the best individually owned stores in the mens' clothing industry. He had a love for mens fashion and took incredible pride in making sure his customers were dressed impeccably. His other passions in life were his family. His wife of 29 years, Holly, was the love of his life. Anyone who saw them together knew they had a true love affair. His two children, Amanda and Tucker, were the lights of his life. He was beyond proud of them and would do anything for them. He is also survived by his "big" sister, Sue Ann, who he always loved and looked up to, as well as many nieces and nephews. Also very important to him was his "AA Family", where he gained so much love, support, and encouragement. An "Open House" to pay final respects will be held Saturday, August 20th from 2-4:00pm at Messinger Mortuary, 7601 E Indian School Rd, Scottsdale.
