Bronlee was born May 5, 1945 in Hazard, Kentucky, to Woodrow and Mollie (Gullett) Combs. He married JoAnne (Schoonover) Combs on May 15, 1994. After graduating from Latkota High School in West Chester, Ohio, he went into the United States Air Force on the buddy system with his friend Bobby Jarvis in 1965. He then returned to Ohio and worked at the United States Postal Service in Middleton, Ohio, Nashville, Tennessee, Ft. Myers, Florida and Maitland, Florida.

He and his wife enjoyed traveling and visited all 50 states, many of them several time because there was so much beauty and so many things to see and do. The drove the historic Route 66 from Chicago, Illinois to the Santa Monica Pier in California. They enjoyed multiple trips to Alaska and Hawaii and even went on a polar bear tour in Churchill, Manitoba, Canada, which Bronlee spoke of as one of the biggest thrills of his life. They also enjoyed riding motorcycles on long trips and belonging to the Christian Motorcycle Association.

Bronlee is survived by his wife of 26 years, JoAnne, a brother, Jed (Marcia) of Trenton, Ohio and many nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by both parents, a brother and two sisters.

    Jed and I made a trip to Florida last year, 2021. To see Bronlee and JoAnn and their new home and Edgewater, the Atlantic Ocean- The Beach, JB’s Fish Restaurant and so many great places to order dinner, their church, Cape Canaveral to see Rockets go up and tour the area.. it was thrilling! Sometimes we want to or say we will or try to plan times to see and have fun with special people in our lives but we just don’t do it…. this time we are so blessed that we did; we had the best time ever.. wonderful memories never knowing it was one of the last times we would see and hug and laugh with Bronlee.
    Love you Bronlee, see ya later!!!

    I’m so very sorry to hear of Bronlee’s passing. I know my dad is so happy to see him in heaven yet sad that he had to leave so soon. He was a kind, compassionate and funny person and I will miss hearing his voice. I will always picture he and my dad together talking and laughing!
