Thomas McCombs

Thomas Howard McCombs of Middletown, NY passed away on Tuesday, December 25, 2018 at Orange Regional Medical Center, Middletown, NY surrounded by his beloved family. He was 73 years old.

Tom was born on May 2, 1945 in Highland Falls, NY, the son of Howard McCombs and Antoinette Dembeck. He was a driver for Yellow Freight, Maybrook, NY and a member of the Teamsters Local 707 and the Middletown Elks Lodge.

A practical joker with a generous heart and love for conversation, he made everyone around him smile. Tom was an adoring husband, happy-go-lucky father, gregarious brother, and tireless grandfather. Family meant the world to him. He also never met a stranger and cheered for the successes of others, no matter how big or small. We will miss his distinct sense of humor, eagerness to go out and about, positive energy, and laughter.

He is survived by his loving companion, Patricia Schultz of Middletown, NY; son, Scott McCombs and his wife Alexandria of Dallas, TX; daughter, Katherine DePuy and husband Greg of Johnson, NY; sisters, Patti Sanders of New Hampton, NY and Donna Dominick of Middletown, NY; seven grandchildren, Jenna, Brooke and Hunter McCombs, Collins and Dempsey DePuy, and Ian and Alessandra Pengel, and several nieces and nephews. Tom was predeceased by his high school sweetheart and wife, Barbara Ann McCombs and son, Thomas McCombs, Jr.
