Space City Credit Union Mourns Loss of Long-Time Board Member
Monday, July 2, 2018 6:50 AM

Buddy Holcombe

Buddy Charles Holcombe of Montgomery, Texas, passed away on May 4, 2018, surrounded by his loving family.

After serving his country as a reservist for seven years in the US Marine Corps, Holcombe spent the remainder of his professional career with Stewart & Stevenson, working his way up to marketing director and eventually retiring after 43 years. Holcombe was very active in his community, he had been a master mason since 1969, served as vice president of the Lake Conroe Fire Department for 16 years, was on the Staff Parish Relations Committee at the Montgomery United Methodist Church, and faithfully served 48 years on the board of directors of Space City Credit Union.

“Buddy was on the committee that hired me in 1994 and was a great role model and mentor to me for the past 24 years," said Craig Rohden, president/CEO of Space City Credit Union. "The credit union has seen tremendous growth and expansion under his leadership, and we all owe Buddy a debt of gratitude. He was a big believer in the board setting policy and allowing the staff to run the day-to-day operations of the credit union. He was calm, generous, and always brought wit and wisdom to the meetings. Buddy always put the member's best interest ahead of everything else.”

In 2016, the credit union board, together with Space City Charities, formed a perpetual $10,000 scholarship in Holcombe’s name to forever honor and recognize his long-term service to the credit union. If you would like to make a donation in his honor, you may do so at
