Jack Combs Obituary
Jack A. Combs


Jack A. Combs, 75, of Marshall died suddenly on Friday October 2, 2015 from injuries sustained in an accident.

Jack was born on Friday October 13, 1939 in Albion to Harry and Hazel (Rarick) Combs.  He graduated from Tekonsha High School in 1959.  He served two years in the Navy with the Seabees.  On July 29, 1960, he married Rosalie C. Jones in Marshall. This  year they celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary with a celebration with family and friends. Jack worked for 30 years for the Kellogg Company on second shift in the processing department until he retired in 1996. 

He is survived by his wife Rosalie of Marshall and daughter Kathy (Steve Neitzka) of Marshall.  He was preceded in death by his parents and a brother Kenneth Combs in 2011 along with many "fur-babies".

Jack's mischievous sense of humor, memorable laugh and ever present toothpick will be missed at the Combs' family gatherings by Uncle Don (Carol) Combs, Uncle Doyle (Ruth Wilson), along with all of his cousins.

Visitation will take place on October 10, 2015 at Kempf Family Funeral Home, Marshall Chapel from 1-7pm with family present to greet friends from 1-3pm and 5-7pm.  A memorial service celebrating his life will take place at 2pm on Sunday October 11, 2015 at the Marshall United Methodist Church, 721 Old US 27 North with Mr. Larry Prince officiating.  Family requests memorial contributions to the Calhoun County East or to the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Utah.
