On Tuesday, April 20, 2021, Harold “Harolly” Coombs, Jr., loving husband and father of four, passed away at the age of 72.
Harolly was born on April 8, 1949 in LaPlata, MD to Harold Coombs and Faith Coombs-Delvo. He was a graduate of La Plata High School, class of 1967. He proudly served four years in the United States Air Force, Office of Special Investigation Division. Having an enduring entrepreneurial spirit, Harolly opened Pomfret Engine Shop in 1985, where he built “family race cars”. Furthermore, his passion for excellence fueled his joint ownership of Goose Bay Marina for 23 years. Harolly was happiest spending his time wherever the sun was shining, weather was warm, and his family and friends were close. Late nights, long weekends and get-a-ways were a given -- because making memories with loved ones was what he believed life was all about.
On August 22, 1987, Harolly married his love Karen Bowie; they raised their four children: Carla, Tara, Brandon, and Heather. Together, they built their dream home on the water – full of love, memories, family gatherings and endless summer nights.
Harolly was preceded in death by his father Harold Walter Coombs. He is survived by his wife Karen (Bowie) Coombs, his 4 four children Carla O’Neal (Rob), Tara Havrilla (Drew), Brandon Coombs (Kelly) and Heather Davis (Sonny), 10 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren and his mother Clara Faith Coombs-Delvo; siblings: Dianne Hunt; Debbie Winkler (Gale); and Timmy Coombs (Phyllis).
The family will receive friends on Saturday, April 24, 2021 at the LaPlata United Methodist Church at 12 noon until time of services at 3 PM.
