Jennings "Ike" Ray Holcomb

February 13, 1958 ~ November 8, 2021 (age 63)


Jennings  Ray “Ike” Holcomb, 63, of Cowen went home to be with the Lord on Monday, November 8, 2021 at Summersville Regional Medical Center.

Born February 13, 1958 in Sutton, he was the son of the late Dolan and Rosie (Humphries) Holcomb.  In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his son, Dolan Ray Holcomb; daughters:  Ashley Diane Allen and Whisper Rose Allen; brothers: Thomas “Tinker” Holcomb and Lincoln Holcomb; sisters: Janet Lou Holcomb and Judith Sue Holcomb; and grandson, Thomas Wilson.

Ike was a hard-working man who loved to fix things.  He was a previous Boy Scout which fueled a passion for helping people, hunting, target shooting, carpentry, and a love for animals, particularly his dogs and goats.  He enjoyed riding his motorcycle.  His greatest love of all was that for his children and grandchildren.
