Frederick Dudley Holcombe

b. 1 April 1925, d. 26 July 2007
     Frederick Dudley Holcombe was born on 1 April 1925 at Rochester, Monroe Co., NY. He was the son of Chester Frank Holcombe and Louise Shelby. Frederick Dudley Holcombe died on 26 July 2007 at Hines VA Hospital, Hines, IL, at age 82.

From the Chicago Tribune:

CORPORATE ARCHETECT BUILT STORES, SAUDI CITY

For Frederick Holcombe, architecture was a balance between creativity and practicality, and he used those principles as the corporate architect for J.C. Penney Co. and Hart Schaffner & Marx.

"Clearly his focus was on retail for many years and . . . what he enjoyed was the whole idea that you could design something and then see it," said his son James. "He liked tangible results. He would visit the stores and pick out the fixtures and watch them physically being constructed into something that your get to see in use."

Mr. Holcombe, 82, of Oak Park, died of multiple myeloma Thursday, July 26, in Hines VA Hospital near Maywood.

He was very flexible with his ideas," said Albert Miripol, a former architect with Carson, Pirie, Scott and co. when Mr. Holcombe was corporate architect for Hart Schaffner & Marx. "Many of the stores he designed were when (the company) was a big force in the clothing business, and they had all these big stores across the country. He was very well liked and very talented."

Mr. Holcombe was born in Rochester, N.Y., and raised in Avon, N.Y. His family lost their knitting mill business during the Depression but opened a confectionery and tobacco business, where Mr. Holcombe worked.

He attended Syracuse University but was drafted in 1943 into the Army during World War II. He served as a staff sergeant in the Pacific theater.

Upon his discharge in 1946, he resumed his education, graduated with an architecture degree and became certified. He married his first wife, Mary Elizabeth Green, in 1951.

He started his career with Victor Gruen in Detroit. However, he wanted his young family to live overseas, so he became a private contractor for the Air Force in Germany. There he designed buildings at several bases.

The family stayed in Germany from 1956 to 1961, when they returned to the States and moved to Connecticut. For the next four years, he worked for J.C. Penney, designing retail stores. In 1967 he was hired by Hart Schaffner & Marx as a corporate architect.

He and his wife divorced in 1969. In 1975 he married his wife, Sue, and the couple lived in Chicago until 1980. Mr. Holcombe was then hired by the engineering firm Ralph M. Parsons and Co. to help plan, design and oversee construction of a new city, Yanbu, Saudi Arabia.

"The plan was to build a city on the Red Sea so oil could be exported out the Red Sea," said his daughter Shelby Boblick. "He was literally building a city near the Red Sea."

After his return in 1986, he remained with the firm in its Washington, D.C., office until he retired in 1991.

He moved to Fontana, Wis., near Lake Geneva, and shifted his focus to freelance work and residential architecture.

Mr. Holcombe was a member of the American Institute of Architects.

In addition to his wife, son and daughter, other survivors include another daughter, Amy Dolce; another son, Christopher; 12 grandchildren; and a great-grandson.
