From an obituary in an unidentified newspaper:

WESTFIELD - Lawrence Holcomb, 70, of 2 Marjorie St., retired veteran Park Department working foreman, died Thursday at Noble Hospital. He was born in East Granby April 6, 1894, son of George N. and Mrs. Emma C. (Dibble) Holcomb, and was the husband of Mrs. Lucia (Gleason) Holcomb.

Mr. Holcomb retired in April 1963, from the Park Department after 30 years of service. He was commonly referred as the department's superintendent, though his civil service classification was that of working foreman.

He began his duties with the Park Department in 1933 and it was during his long service that Grandmother's Garden was developed and became recognized nationwide. The city's approximate 16 acres of park land were under his jurisdiction.

It was during his service that the greenhouse off Smith Ave., where flowers are started and grown for transplanting in various park areas, was developed.

Mr. Holcomb also was active in the establishment and conduct of the former annual Grandmother's Day in recognition of grandmothers and of Mrs. Mary Steiger, mother of Albert Steiger of the Springfield Department Store. In 1953 during the 17th Grandmother's Day program at Grandmother's Garden, Mr. Holcomb was honored in recognition of his services. Westfield Woman's Club Garden Club department honored Mr. Holcomb last May with an inscribed illustrated book on gardening in appreciation for his helpful services to others.

He was a member of First Congregational church and its Men's Club and a member of Mount Moriah Lodge of Masons.

Besides his wife, he leaves a son, Lawrence C. Holcomb of Westfield; two daughters, Mrs. Emil R. Lee of Thompsonville, Conn., and Mrs. Harry Sesan of Feeding Hills; a brother, Luman A. Holcomb of Huntington; two sisters, Mrs. Wilfred Liberty of Westfield and Mrs. Clarence Crane of Southwick; eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

The funeral will be Sunday afternoon at 2 at Healey funeral home with Rev. Chandler W. Gilbert, pastor of Frist Congregational Church, officiating. Burial will be in New Cemetery, Southwick. Calling hours at the funeral home Saturday are 2 to 4 and 7 to 9.
