Glenn Holcomb Obituary

Glenn, first and foremost, loved his family and friends with every ounce of his being. He was a family man known for his loving and caring presence. He will always be remembered as the man you could go to with your problems, for a listening ear and open heart. He would give you the shirt off his back or the last dollar in his pocket. He was always the life of the party, with his proud presence and love for living life to its fullest. He will be missed by all, but never forgotten as his soul will live on with us forever.

Glenn David "Old Man & Yoke" Holcomb, age 64, of Black Mountain, NC, passed away on Sunday, September 10, 2023 at Mission Hospital in Asheville, NC.
