Guy O’Brien Combs, 81, of Delaplane, passed away Wednesday, February 13, 2019, surrounded by his loving family.
He was born December 24, 1937, and raised in Hardy County, W.Va., and has called Fauquier County, VA his home since 1971. His parents were Jacob Guy Combs, Naomi Faith Miller and his stepmother, Hazel Olive Combs. He is predeceased by two daughters, Billie Mae Combs and Susan Ann Combs.
Guy owned and operated a successful insurance agency for more 30 years in Warrenton. For most of his adult life he was an exceptional woodworker, creating beautiful cabinetry, furniture, signs, toys and more. Guy was an avid conversationalist and a good neighbor, always willing to drop what he was doing to help another. He was a lifelong outdoorsman and in his latter years found joy interacting with Virginia’s wonderful wildlife, even being nicknamed “The Deer Whisperer” by close friends and family. He was strong in faith, engaging in regular prayer and reading of the Bible. He is missed by his bird, Charlie, and will be dearly missed and remembered forever by family and friends.
Guy is survived by his wife of nearly 60 years, Ludy Frances Combs; his daughter, Frances Kay Finnerty and her husband Francis Anderson “Andy” Finnerty, of Warrenton; his grandchildren, Joella Nicole Trueschler and husband Bryan Gregory Trueschler, and Benson O’Brien Finnerty; his great-grandchildren, Adaline Joy Trueschler, Emerson Gregory Trueschler, Cohen Anderson Trueschler and Linley June Trueschler; his sisters, Ramona Wolford and husband Dolan Wolford, and Carol Crider and husband Rodney Crider; a brother, David Combs, and stepbrother George Hibbard and wife Viola Hibbard.
