Robert (Bob) Holcomb

Robert (Bob) Holcomb passed unexpectedly May 16, 2008 at the age of 70. He was born Dec. 25, 1937, in Los Angeles, Calif. at French Hospital.

Holcomb moved to Sacramento in 1950 with his family. He attended Arden Carmichael Elementary, and was a member of the graduating class of 1956 at El Camino High School. He then attended American River College, joined the Sheet Metal Workers Union Local No.162 and eventually opened his own business, Cal State Mechanical. He was also a retired commodore of the Riverview Yacht Club of Sacramento.

Holcomb was predeceased by his father, Roy F. Holcomb and his mother, Marion Allen Bradford of Sacramento, Calif. in 2005.

He is survived by Donna Aldrich, his longtime companion of 23 years, of Stateline, Nev.; son, Robert A. Holcomb Jr. and his wife Jessica Holcomb of Sacramento; daughter, Christina Helms and her husband Bradley of Sacramento; daughter, Lorri Zimmer and her husband George of Piedmont, Calif.; daughter, Cheri Rieg of Denver, Colo.; and son, Mike Booth of Reedsport, Ore. He is also survived by a sister-in-law and her husband, Bev and Ron Addler of Avon, Ind.

Grandchildren include Christopher and Shelby Booth of Sacramento; Piercen and Cianna Helms, of Sacramento; and Kami and Kai Zimmer, of Piedmont. He is also survived by several nieces, nephews and many friends. Though each of you is not listed by name, he loved every one of you.

It was second nature for Bob to care for others, especially paying attention to the little things in life which make people smile, reinforcing his sincerity by his actions every day of his life.

The memorial service will take place 10 a.m. May 31, at East Lawn Chapel, Folsom Blvd. at 43rd St. in Sacramento, Calif. In lieu of flowers please contribute to the charity of your choice.
