Brad Holcomb went home to be with the Lord on Thursday, May 9, 2013.

He was born on February 16, 1957, in San Diego, CA, to Gordon and Loretta Holcomb. In 1985, he moved to Odessa, TX. During his years in Odessa, he was heavily involved in media and broadcasting, initially working as the program director of KODM and then later becoming a part-owner in KCDQ.

After success in radio, Brad ventured into residential and commercial security systems where he remained for the past 15 years as the Odessa branch manager of 1st Alarm Security.

In 1987, he met and married the love of his life, Mary Ann, and they were happily married for the remaining 26 years. In 1992, the couple had twin boys Justin and Austin, whom he adored.

Brad was a devoted and loving father who loved Jesus, the community, and his family. When asked how he was doing, his response was always “living a dream.” He never met a stranger and was always trying to help others become better; always leading by example and helping others succeed. His positive energy, honesty, and personality made him well respected amongst his peers. He loved going to the lake, golfing with his boys, the serenity of the ocean and the mountains. He took great pride in his work and always did the right thing with a smile.

Brad is preceded in death by his parents, Gordon and Loretta Holcomb, his brother Gordon Holcomb and his niece Janell Holcomb.

He is survived by his loving wife Mary Ann, twin sons Austin and Justin, brother Glynn Holcomb, nephews Gordon, Blake, and Trent Holcomb, all of Odessa, and nephew and niece Dalton and Danielle Holcomb, both of San Angelo; nieces and nephew Kassi Scheeler, Matt Roche and Devlin Longmire, all of Helena, MT; aunt and uncle Fred and Janell Spitz of Oklahoma City, OK; sisters and brothers-in-law Wanda and Marvin Mace, Dennis and Pam Longmire, Lee Longmire, and Karla Roche, all of Helena, MT; special friends Debi and Dwayne Hays of Odessa, TX; and his 1st Alarm family; Mom and Dad Longmire of Yuma, AZ; and numerous cousins.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in his memory to the Texas Department of Public Safety, Safe Driving Campaign or to the Brad Holcomb Memorial Scholarship Fund at St. John’s Episcopal School, 401 N. County Rd West, Odessa, TX 79763.

A celebration of his life will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 15, 2013, at First Baptist Church with Rev. Byron McWilliams officiating.

Just heard the tragic news. My thoughts are with Mary Ann and the family.I have very fond memories of Brad and feel I may have played a small part in Brad meeting Mary Ann way back in the Chelsea Street Pub Days.
Take care of each other,

It was my pleasure to meet and socialize with Brad and Mary Ann on a memorable cruise. I thoroughly enjoyed sharing experiences with him and kept in touch on a regular basis via e-mail communication.

What a shocker it was to receive the news from Mary Ann of his death. My deepest sympathy goes to all who mourn his passing.

With deepest sympathy,

In my career, You were a wonderful mentor and great inspiration, teaching ,always teaching and leading by example. As a friend, You were honest even when it wasn't what I hoped to hear, supportive, compassionate, and unwavering in loyalty.
As a father, I saw in you the role model I wanted to be for my children.
As a husband, I was in awe of, and envied the relationship and dedication to the woman ...you loved, more than anyone on this earth ,giving the example of what a truly strong and pure love is.
Brad Holcomb , I hope you know now ...just how much better you made everyone who was fortunate enough to know you. And though you always shrugged it off in humility when I had told you in the past. "Thank You"
My life would not have been as good with out you my friend, and I fear it will be a little dimmer without the light that perpetually shined from you.
May God Bless and comfort those of us you leave behind. - Christian Wilkinson
