Roy Depue Holcombe

b. 16 February 1876, d. 6 September 1945
     Roy Depue Holcombe was born on 16 February 1876 at Sycamore, DeKalb Co., IL. He was the son of Orator S. Holcombe and Ella Martha Hubbard. Roy Depue Holcombe lived in 1925 at 1452 N. Central Park, Chicago, IL. He died on 6 September 1945 at Chicago, Cook Co., IL, at age 69.

from an obituary Sept 7, 1945 Sycamore Tribune


Funeral services were accorded for Roy D. Holcomb of Chicago on Thursday afternoon at two o'clock at the Johnson-Van natta Funeral Home. The Rev. F. H. Weichlein of St. Peter's Episcopal Church was the officiating clergyman. Interment took place in the family lot in Elmwood cemetery.


Mr. Holcomb passed away at his home in the city on Tuesday morning at eight o'clock, after several months of critical illness. After the first of the year, he suffered a severe attack of influenza, which left his lungs in a weakened condition. Other complications followed, and he was hospitalized for two months in a vain effort to relieve his suffering. He had been home from the hospital about ten days at the time of this death.


Mr. Holcomb was possessed of an exceedingly pleasant personality, and his likable qualities won friends for him in every walk of life. Genial and kindly-disposed, though slightly reserved in his manner, the imprint of his cordial greeting and understanding heart will always be cherished in tender memory by those privileged to know him best. A genuine friend has gone, and each one feels a personal loss in his demise, especially those in Sycamore who remember him so kindly from the days of his youth.


Roy D. Holcomb, son and only child of Orator S. and Ella Hubbard Holcomb, was born in Sycamore on February 16, 1876. He received his education in the Sycamore public schools, retaining his residence in this city until he attained young manhood.


Arriving at years of maturity, he accepted a position with the Deering Harvester Company in Chicago, where he continued in this same employ for a number of years. Mr. Holcomb later traveled into the southwest, where he settled for a time in Oklahoma City. He served as Deputy in the sheriff's office of that city. It was while located in Oklahoma, that he met and was united in marriage on August 7, 1909 to Miss Blanche Diemer of Oklahoma City.


Since their marriage, Mr. and Mrs. Holcomb have resided in Chicago, where for 11 years Mr. Holcomb has been Deputy marshal of the United States court of Cook County. He has become especially proficient in this type of work and was recognized as a master officer, thoroughly familiar with the laws of the court, and capably represented their execution. Perhaps he inherited a predilection from his ancestral lineage for an occupation of this nature, as his father O.S. Holcomb, had served as sheriff of DeKalb County, as also did his uncles, Morris Holcomb and Reuben J. Holcomb, all of whom have been deceased for many years.

Mrs. Holcomb survives to mourn the loss of the decedent, as do a host of relatives and friends, both in Sycamore and Chicago. Mrs. Gertrude Holcomb, Mrs. A.H. Resch and Arthur H. Holcomb, and their families are cousins of Mr. Holcomb.

Those from out of town who were in attendance at the final rites or came to express their last tribute to Mr. Holcomb included: Mrs. Jane Starkey, a niece, Mrs. Helen Strader, Miss Lola Stick, George Whittingham, Wade Messick, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Colgate, Mr. and Mrs. J.W. Albright, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Jones, all from Chicago, and Diemer Davis, a nephew from Mankato, Minn.
