LCDR Joseph Franklin Deck Holcombe

b. 22 October 1917, d. 19 April 1994
LCDR Joseph Holcombe
1917-1994
Pearl Harbor Survivor
     LCDR Joseph Franklin Deck Holcombe was born on 22 October 1917 at New Orleans, LA.1 He was the son of George Franklin Holcombe and Jane Frances Deck. LCDR Joseph Franklin Deck Holcombe was graduated at University of New Mexico, Albequerque, NM. He married Wilma Jean Scripter on 18 January 1940. LCDR Joseph Franklin Deck Holcombe died on 19 April 1994 at West Los Angeles, CA, at age 76.1

Information from Wilma Jean Holcomb. Joseph was a retired LCDR in US Navy, Later retired from North American Rockwell, Director of Logistics, "Man in Space" program. National Management Assn; National Assn. of Professional Contract Administrators; Eastern Star of China Masonic Lodge. Commendation for Pearl Harbor, Dec. 7, 1941.


Joe was a member of the Pearl Harbor Survivors (he and Wilma Jean both were living there on 12/7/41) He was on the USS Nevada (Battleship) which was the only ship to get underway during the Japanese attack and was later grounded on Hospital Point to keep it from getting shot and sunk at the opening to Pearl Harbor. It was tied just forward of the USS Arizona which was hit and sunk.


Wilma Jean was evacuated as she was expecting their oldest daughter and they needed all hospital space for the wounded. Wilma Jean had a 17 yr old cousin, Delbert Spencer, on the Nevada too and he was struck and blown into the burning water, died the next day in a hospital. He is buried in the Punchbowl National Cemetery, section C, near the grave of Ernie Pyle.


The Nevada was raised and sent back to the states in the same convoy in which Wilma Jean was evacuated and later went back into commission and was used in the invasion of Europe. Joe served his time in the navy, retired, we came back to Los Angeles and he worked for North American Aviation/Rocketdyne in their "Man in Space" program until he retired from that. The above company (later after he retired) became Boeing. Joe also served in Tsingtao China.


Their first daughter was 18 mo old before he ever got to see her, but the Hutchinson, KS, newspaper reported that :


New mothers and nurses lent an appreciative ear yesterday at Grace Hospital where Judy Kay Holcombe, 6 days ol, cried over the telephone for her Daddy more than 3,000 miles away at Pearl Harbor. Judy Kay's mother, Mrs. J. F. Holcombe, was waiting for the call which came at 10 O'clock in the morning, 4 1/2 hrs later than at Bishop's Point, Pearl Harbor, where Navy Warrant Officer Holcombe put in the call. Mrs Holcombe who was sent home from the Hawaiian Islands 4 months ago was wheeled into the hall to the telephone and Judy Kay was rushed up from the nursery.

DO'S AND DON'TS

First the 24 year old mother talked with the overseas operator who gave her a "Pep Talk" on what not to say. Her mother, Mrs. W. E. Scripter, Herington, almost was cut off last week when she tried to tell the new father how much the baby weighed telephoning him of Judy Kay's safe arrival. "I guess they thought she was using some kind of code" Mrs Holcombe laughingly reported today. After being admonished to speak only in English, Mrs. Holcombe and her navy husband were connected and he proceeded to use $16.56 in tolls learning what his baby looked like and hearing her yip. "She looks just like you" Mrs. Holcombe told her husband.

JUDY KAY RESPONDS

A nurse held Judy Kay, who was slightly grouchy from being waked in the middle of a nap, the nurse thumped her on the soles of her feet and she yowled enthusiastically. The father in Hawaii said he could hear her swell and that was about all except for goodbye. The transpacific call was not a new event for the parents though quite an innovation for young Judy Kay who had no comment to make on the experience today. "We try to talk to each other once every month" Mrs Holcombe said. "It will probably be a long time before we have a chance to see each other again"

THROUGH CRYING

Mrs. Holcombe said she didn't cry after the exciting call, "I did my crying months ago
when I was evacuated to the US to save hospital space for wounded military" But the young father thousands of miles away sounded close to tears after hearing his baby wail.

The baby's footprints taken at the hospital are to be sent to him. Mrs. Holcombe is living at her parent's home in Herington, Ks but came to stay with her sister, Mrs. Roy D. Young, 201 East 11th, while waiting for Judy Kay's arrival. Mr and Mrs Holcombe were high school sweethearts in Kansas and were married while he was on leave 2 1/2 years ago. He has been in the Navy seven years.





Joseph was stationed aboard the USS Kermit Roosevelt ARG-16 in Tsingtao, China 7/22/48 to 12/15/49. One of his commendations was for action on Dec 7th, Pearl Harbor and also rec'd Pearl Harbor Survivors medal. In 8/11/51 he served at the Bureau of Supply & Accts in Washington DC. He went back to the USN Ammunition Depot in Lualualei, Hawaii as Comptroller 7/3/54 to 7/25/56. He retired to the Highest Command on 4/19/94 from Wadsworth VA hospital in Hollywood, CA. He was a member of F & AM Military Order of Sojourners.
