Obituary for Wilson Earl Combs

Wilson “Willie” E. Combs, of Highland Twp., passed away on November 11, 2015 at the age of 75.

Born December 2, 1939 in Hazard, Kentucky, Willie was the second of seven children born to parents Anna Lee (nee. Eversole) and William Harrison Combs.

Willie was destined to be a mechanic—since he was a young man, his hands were always busy with tools. He spent his career with the Huron-Clinton Metroparks where he began as a technician on the mechanical maintenance team and retired as the supervisor.

He and Sue made the old hunting cabin in Shingleton, MI that he frequented as a boy into a family summer home. Here, many memories were made and lessons taught, especially those involving hunting, fishing and appreciating the beauties of nature.

In addition to Sue, his beloved wife of 44 years, Willie is survived by his children, Stephen (Karla) Combs, Ralph (Julie) Muelling, and Jill (Jeff) Savitsky; grandchildren, Matthew Combs, Andrew Combs, and Marissa Muelling; siblings, Henry (Polly) Combs, John (Bonnie) Combs, and Mary Vanbuskirk, as well as many nieces, nephews, extended family and a host of dear friends.

Funeral Service will be held from Our Savior Evangelical Lutheran Church, 13667 Highland Rd., Hartland on Sunday, November 15, 2015 at 2:00 PM. The Rev. Christopher I. Thoma and The Rev. Dr. Frank J. Pies to officiate. Friends may visit at Lynch & Sons Funeral Home, 404 E. Liberty St., Milford on Saturday from 2-8 PM and at the Church on Sunday beginning at 1 PM.

Memorials encouraged to: Our Savior Evangelical Lutheran Church.
