MCCOMBS: Rev. Bobby ”Bob” Glenn McCombs, age 88, God’s faithful servant, went to be with his Heavenly Father Friday, September 3, 2021. Bob was born October 27, 1932 in Birmingham, Alabama to John Earl and Elizabeth Glenn McCombs. He was married on December 26, 1954 to Dorothy “Dot” Claire Funderburk of Tallassee, Alabama at the First Baptist Church of Sylacauga, Alabama where Dot was the church secretary.
Bob and Dot were graduates of Samford University (formerly Howard College) in Birmingham, Alabama. He graduated with a double major in English and Secondary Education. He is also a graduate of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky where he received a Master of Divinity and a Master of Theology in Pastoral Care and Psychology of Religion.
Bob was a pastor of Baptist churches for nearly 50 years. Bob believed that every person was created by God and was important and special and that God sent them here with a purpose. Bob always wanted to bless and be a blessing to others and lived his life in a manner that made others feel “extra special”.
He served his first church in Florala, Alabama as a college student. In seminary, he served a church in Elizabethtown, Kentucky. After he graduated from seminary, he came to Georgia where he served Jones Creek Baptist Church in Ludowici, Georgia. He then served at First Baptist Church in Warm Springs, Georgia. Bob retired at age 67 on December 31, 1999 from his formal ministry career after serving as pastor of Concord Baptist Church in Concord, Georgia for 31 years. After retirement Bob was honored as “Pastor Emeritus” by Concord Baptist Church. Bob never truly retired from pastoring, ministering and witnessing to others.
Bob was preceded in death by his brother, Jack Perry McCombs; brother, Donald Ray McCombs; and brother, John Russell McCombs.
Bob is survived by his loving wife of 66 years, Dorothy Claire Funderburk McCombs; his son, Jon Randal McCombs (Gina); his daughter, Wendy King (Scott); grandson, Christopher Glen McCombs (Lacee); grandson, Tyler Douglas King. He will be missed by several generations of nieces and nephews and extended family of loving congregants.
