On Thursday, Sept. 13, 2018, Lee Roy Coombs was called home by his heavenly Father after more than a year of battling cancer.

Lee was born in Abbottsburg, Bladen County, one of five children of Louis Edmond Coombs (father) and Maggie Christine Dowless Coombs (mother). He was preceded in death by his parents; brothers, Louis Edmond Coombs Junior (Sampson), Edward Lee Coombs (Eddie) and Don Benjamin Coombs Sr. (Ben); and is survived by one last sibling, his loving sister, Maggie Love Yow.

Lee Roy Coombs is also survived by his four loving children, Jeffrey Mark Coombs, Christopher Michael Coombs, Kimberly Beck and Randall Todd; along with grandchildren, Kalynn Hammond, Stephanie Todd, Kristin Coombs, Gavin Coombs and Gage Coombs; great-grandchildren, Tucker Jordan, Brooklynn Parkin and Rylan Mclenny; nieces, Lynn Paul, Tracie Moore, Donna Lee and Jackie Yow; nephews, Don Benjamin Coombs Jr., Steve Yow and Cicero Yow (Cid). The family would like to thank Nelda Bozeman, his loving companion of nearly 25 years, for being there and caring for him. The granddaughter of Nelda Bozeman, Mackenzie Young, also thought of Lee Roy as her grandfather and often times Lee would introduce her as his little girlfriend.

During the last 45 years, Ronald Britt was everything from his lot man at the car lot to his best friend. He knew he could always count on Ronald. I know Ronald will sure miss boss man. The honorary pallbearer will be Ronald Britt and remaining pallbearers will be Don Coombs, Cid Yow, Randy Elderdice, Gene Todd, Jimmy Gideon and Tommy Perry.

Lee Roy lived life to its fullest in every way imaginable. He loved to travel, ride motorcycles and loved spending time with family and friends. I don’t think he ever met a stranger. He started many years ago in Wilmington as a very successful used car dealer and also was a man of extreme faith. He watched Charles Stanley every chance that he could. He lived an honest yet humble life. He often times would tell people that you can’t eat but with one fork at a time meaning that he was not a man of excess.

Family visitation will be held from 6 to 8 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 26, at Andrews Mortuary, Market Street, Wilmington. A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m., Thursday, Sept. 27, at the Chapel of Andrews Mortuary. Interment will immediately follow services in Greenlawn Cemetery, Shipyard Boulevard and 16th Street.
