Wayne A. McCombs born January 9, 1945 in Cotulla, TX went home to be with our Lord at age 75 on Sunday, May 10, 2020 at home in Buchanan Dam, TX. He was surrounded by the love of his life (Susie) Sue J. McCombs and family. Wayne retired from the San Antonio Police Department in 1993 after 28 years of dedicated service. His small business, McCombs’ Custom Homes, then built custom homes, which were second to none, for 10 years. He was also the driving force behind the building of Anchors Boat Storage in Buchanan Dam, TX. He also owned and operated Buchanan Boat & Mini Storage. He devoted his life to his family, who will surely miss his love, caring nature, guidance, understanding, and selfless giving. He was an honest and straight talking man that everyone could depend on. He loved a challenge and any opportunity to play a practical joke on some unsuspecting person. He is preceded in death by his parents: Richard C. McCombs and Dorothy Dixon, sister: Marylou Potter, and brothers: Richard McCombs III, James Dixon, Benjamin Dixon, and Claude Dixon. He is survived by his sister: Marie Samarrai & husband Labib, brother: Ara Dixon & wife Donna, sons: Danny McCombs & wife Charlotte, Robert McCombs & wife Diana, Shelton Posey & wife Jesarah, and Jason McCombs & wife Ashley, daughters: Tammy Gleitz & husband Melvin and Terri McCombs, 19 grandchildren, and 10 great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.

I am a stranger who just watched the Jason McCombs case on A&E. May your family be comforted at this time. Wayne McCombs must have been an awesome man and he really touched me with his remarks on the show. God bless you.

To the Mccombs family I am so very sorry for your loss. I know you do not know me but I seen a program on TV concerning your son & I could tell right away that you were good people & a loving family.
I feel we have something in common as my Mother passed away in May of 2008 with a glioblastoma brain tumor & then my Dad passed in Jan 2016 also from a brain tumor.
My heart, thoughts & prayers go out to Mr. McCombs family, May God comfort each & everyone of you.

Wendy G. Pryor, NC.

I was only lucky enough to meet Wayne a couple of times but he instantly welcomed me into his home and put a smile on all our faces. Despite being very sick he didn't stop making us laugh and kept a smile on his face as he recounted amusing family stories of his children growing up and of being a police officer. It was abundantly clear that Wayne was a great man and was surrounded by a very loving family. I am sure like me, everyone whom he met probably left with a smile on their face and fond memories of a kind and lovely man. Rest in peace Wayne and thank you for the time I spent with you and for sharing your stories. Ollie

Some of my fondest childhood memories are of camping with the McCombs and Pritchard families. Wayne - always fun, calm and sweet, and Jack - never a dull moment:). Both will always have a place in my heart. Love and prayers to Susie and family.

We knew Wayne from the neighborhood and storage buildings. Wayne always kept Island Lodges Roads busy when he was able to go, many trips a day, but always had time to shout out to his neighbors. When he started driving his golf cart around he would stop for a visit, and he loved to chat. We will remember Wayne as a "Man on the GO". Enjoy the smooth roads in Heaven Wayne.
Love and Prayers to Beautiful Sue and family.
God Bless you all.

I became Wayne's only brother-in=law in 1958 when he was 9 years old he gave me many memories over the next 52 years when his sister passed away. I will never forget the time he told me that in 1958, Feb. 7 he did not think I would make a very good brother-in-law but in the next 52 years I made an acceptable one which to me was great praise coming from him. He will be sorely missed and my sincere condolences to Sue especially and to the rest of the family, one last thing about Wayne, and I still don't know how he got by with only one meal per day for many years.

I came on in 1969 and started working with Wayne on a uniform patrol shift. Being the rookie my first invite to checkout for coffee was from Wayne. He gave me the lowdown about what was going on in the section and gave me some Field Training advice and introduced me to the other district men. After a few years we went to different units. We remained good friends. Although we never worked in the same unit again I will remember those first few days. Thanks Wayne
