Dr. Harry Sherman Holcombe III

b. 22 May 1940, d. 19 September 2013
     Dr. Harry Sherman Holcombe III was born on 22 May 1940. He was the son of H. Sherman Holcombe and Julia Potter Himmelsbach. Dr. Harry Sherman Holcombe III died on 19 September 2013 at Franktown, VA, at age 73.

From the Salem News, Beverly, MA, 27 September 2013:

Franktown, VA — Dr. Harry Sherman Holcomb, III died on Thursday, September 19, 2013, at his home in Franktown, Virginia. Dr. Holcomb, born on May 22, 1940, was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Harry Sherman Holcomb of Beverly Farms, Massachusetts. He attended The Fessenden School, Milton Academy and graduated from Yale University and Yale School of Medicine.

As a young man he embraced service and adventure. His notable experiences included work at mission hospitals in Ghana and Mexico, and sailing to Quebec and Labrador for the Grenfell Mission. From 1970-1972, he served in the United States Navy and was stationed at McMurdo Station, Antarctica, as flight surgeon for Operation Deep Freeze.

Dr. Holcomb completed his residency training in orthopedic surgery at the University of Virginia hospital in Charlottesville in 1977, and started his orthopedic surgery practice on the Eastern Shore of Virginia in that same year. After practicing locally for 20 years, he worked as a traveling "locum tenens" surgeon throughout the country, with assignments that included the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. He was a fellow of the American College of Surgeons and the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons.

While living on the Eastern Shore of Virginia he immersed himself in learning about the local culture, natural environment, and history. Over the years, he served on the Boards of Shore Memorial Hospital, the Arlington Foundation, and the Eastern Shore of Virginia Historical Society. He was a founding director of both Citizens for a Better Eastern Shore and the Virginia Eastern Shore Land Trust. He also was one of the early volunteers and a former director of the Barrier Islands Center. He personally catalogued over 7,400 historic Eastern Shore artifacts for the Barrier Islands Center.

Dr. Holcomb's interests and talents were varied. They included woodworking, sailing, watercolors, and maritime history. All who knew him knew of his passion for horology and his skill at repairing clocks. Visitors to his home would be regaled by his large collection of clocks, all of which rang in unison precisely on the hour.

Dr. Holcomb is survived by his wife, Nancy Tucker Lawson Holcomb; his sister and brother-in-law, Hilary and Albert M. Creighton, Jr. of Manchester, Mass; his two nephews, Albert M. Creighton, III and Peter H. Creighton and their families also from Manchester, Mass.

Jesse Lucian Case Jr.

b. 30 March 1918, d. 19 March 2005
     Jesse Lucian Case Jr. was born on 30 March 1918 at Simsbury, Hartford Co., CT. He was the son of Jesse Lucian Case and Bertha Harriet Rooke. Jesse Lucian Case Jr. married Ruth Bogardus on 1 June 1940 at Bloomfield, Hartford Co., CT. Jesse Lucian Case Jr. died on 19 March 2005 at Simsbury, Hartford Co., CT, at age 86.

From the Hartford Courant, 21 March 2005:

Jessie L. Case, Jr., 86, husband of Ruth (Bogardus) Case, passed away on Saturday (March 19, 2005), after a brief illness. Born March 30, 1918 to Bertha and Jesse L. Case, Sr. in Simsbury, the town where he spent his entire life. An Army veteran of WWII, Jesse served time in Italy. Jesse was an accomplished carpenter, taking great pride in his trade. There are many significant buildings in Connecticut in which Jesse supervised and/or worked on the projects. By far, his proudest accomplishments were the homes he built for family, most notably the house he built 65 years ago for his wife and sons, the house he lived in his entire life. After his official retirement, Jesse continued with carpentry projects, none too big or small and took great pride in being able to restore anything which was dropped on his doorstep. He had a great love of the outdoors, he and Ruth making their annual trip to California each fall in their motor home. Along the way they truly took great pleasure in seeing the world from a bike, a hike or a canoe. Long before there were bike paths, Jesse and Ruth could be seen in Simsbury on a daily basis, thus earning them the nickname ''The Simsbury Bike Team.'' By far, Jesse derived a great deal of pleasure from spending time with family, near and far. He had remarkable memory of family history which is now being passed down from generation to generation. Jesse leaves his beloved wife of 64 years, his four sons and spouses: Richard and Linda S. Case of Granby, Stanley Case and Chris Case of California, Kenneth and Sue Case of Simsbury and Norman and Linda-gail Case of North Granby. He leaves eight grandchildren: Arlin, Acacia, Jennifer, Jessica, Kim, Melanie, Ryan and Sylvia, and seven great-grandchildren: Alandra, Benen, Gabriel, Jordan, Malek, Sebastian and Sophia. He is also survived by his brother Preston Case of Simsbury and his sister Phyllis Chatfield of Oregon and two step-brothers, Almond Case and Calvin Case. He was predeceased by two brothers; Robert and Edson Case and a step-sister Mae Russell. ''There is no greater joy, nor greater reward than to make a fundamental difference in someone's life.'' This will be the legacy of a beloved husband, father, brother, uncle, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend. The Vincent Funeral Home, 880 Hopmeadow Street, Simsbury is in charge of the arrangements. Calling hours will be TODAY, March 21, from 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. Burial service will be from the Vincent Funeral Home on Tuesday, March 22 at 10 a.m. Donations may be made to The Farmington Valley Greenway Bike Train; Farmington Valley Trails Council, Inc., P.O. Box 576, Tariffville, CT 06081.

Richard A. Case

b. 8 July 1942, d. 15 November 2019
     Richard A. Case was born on 8 July 1942. He was the son of Jesse Lucian Case Jr. and Ruth Bogardus. Richard A. Case died on 15 November 2019 at age 77. From the Hartford Courant, 26 November 2019:

Richard A. Case, 77, loving husband of Linda Case and step-dad of Kim Popovich, passed away peacefully on November 15, 2019. Born to Jesse and Ruth Case on July 8, 1942, Richard grew up in Simsbury, CT and graduated from Simsbury High School with honors in 1960. He continued his education at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY, receiving his Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering Degree, cum laude, in 1964. He began his career at Pratt & Whitney as a Mechanical Engineer, with his final position being Senior Computer Integrated Manufacturing Engineer. He then worked as Senior Computer Systems Programmer Analyst until his retirement in 1999. Richard continued his career in Information Technologies for the next six years, first with Computer Sciences Corporation and later with Belcan Services Group, still working at Pratt & Whitney, until his second retirement in 2005. Throughout his career, Richard successfully completed numerous continuing education courses and earned many Microsoft certifications. He also was a licensed electrician.

Richard proudly served his country in the Connecticut Army National Guard beginning in 1965. He was an Expert marksman with a .45 pistol and a Sharpshooter marksman with an M-14 rifle. He attained the rank of Sergeant and received an honorable discharge from the 169th Infantry Division in 1971. While growing up, Richard displayed remarkable reasoning and mechanical abilities. He enjoyed building model airplanes and go-carts, and helping his younger brothers with their creations. Richard became an accomplished downhill skier. He entered races in both Colorado and Europe, and was a member of the National Ski Patrol. He developed a love of travel during a cross-country automobile/camping trip with his family in 1960. He visited almost every state in the US; several European countries; and Prince Edward Island, Canada.

At the young age of 31, Richard suffered a devastating stroke. With tremendous courage, strength, and determination he made a remarkable recovery and was able to return to work full-time in less than a year. Throughout his life, Richard refused to allow lingering effects of the stroke to deny him enjoyment of life. He learned to cross-country ski and ride a bicycle, feats his neurologist said would be impossible. Richard and Linda spent many years enjoying both activities at favorite destinations throughout New England, New York, and PEI. Quieter interests included folk music, jig-saw and Sudoku puzzles, mystery novels, and UConn Women's basketball, displaying an uncanny understanding of the game. During the past eleven years, Richard faced many health challenges with the same courage, strength, and determination he did so many years earlier when he suffered his stroke. He worked as hard as he could to recover, never felt sorry for himself, and adapted his life as was necessary.

Richard's family extends deep appreciation to the staff of Hughes Health and Rehabilitation in West Hartford for the excellent care they provided to him during the last eighteen months. Richard loved his family more than anything.

Besides Linda of Simsbury, his wife of 38 years, and his step-daughter Kim of Bloomfield, he leaves his brother Kenneth and sister-in-law Susan of Simsbury; brother Stanley of California; Linda's sister and her husband, Bernadette and Dennis Mayer of Simsbury; niece Jessica Case of Utah; niece Jennifer Case ElShaks, husband HiSham, and sons Benen and Malik of Mansfield, niece Katharine Mayer-Gough, husband Aaron, and son Harrison of New Zealand; cousin Marion Ivey, husband Dick, daughter Holly and her children Ivie and Coleson of Simsbury; and extended family members. Richard was pre-deceased by his parents, Jesse and Ruth; his youngest brother, Norman; and his very special uncle and aunt, Preston and Estelle Case.

A service to celebrate Richard's life will be held on Friday, November 29, 2019 at Vincent Funeral Home, 880 Hopmeadow Street, Simsbury. Calling hours begin at 11 AM, followed by a Service of Remembrance at noon and internment at Simsbury Cemetery. Please visit Richard's "Book of Memories" at www.vincentfuneralhome.com for online condolences. For those wishing to honor Richard with a charitable contribution, donations may be sent to Farmington Valley Trails Council, Inc., PO Box 576, Tariffville, CT 06081.

Norman Luis Case

b. 22 November 1949, d. 20 July 2014
     Norman Luis Case was born on 22 November 1949 at Hartford, Hartford Co., CT. He was the son of Jesse Lucian Case Jr. and Ruth Bogardus. Norman Luis Case died on 20 July 2014 at Mercy Medical Center, Springfield, MA, at age 64. From the Hartford Courant, 13 July 2014:

Norman L. Case, age 64, of North Granby, CT, passed away on Thursday, July 10, 2014 at Mercy Medical Center, Springfield, MA, with his wife, Linda-gail by his side. He knew his battle with pancreatic cancer was going to be a tough one, but he gave each and every day a fight he wanted to win. The youngest son of Ruth and Jesse Case was born in Hartford, CT and made his home, along with his three brothers, in Simsbury, CT. Their childhood home is still in Simsbury, the home where his mother still resides. A home where anyone was welcome. Norman was grateful to his father, with the two of them working side by side on Norman's home in North Granby. Norman graduated in 1968 from Simsbury High School and made a decision not to attend college, a decision that had him pursuing his life-long dream of cars, and most importantly, engines. His first job was at Daniels Cadillac in Hartford, where he met his future business partner and friend, Dale Hall. Many lunch hours were spent discussing their dream of starting their own shop, which officially made its way onto 9 Herman Drive in Simsbury, 40 years ago. Precision Auomotive, Inc. still stands with co-managers Chris Leaver and Mike Fields. Much of Norman's life revolved around motorsports of all types. He began drag racing with Dale in 1968, with a nitro front-engine dragster that later went on to hold national records in both divisional and national events. Norman raced successfully with Dale until 1987, but remained business partners until Dale's retirement in 2003. At that point, Norm's wife Linda became his business partner. Norm always spoke that the best day of racing was with Dale, traveling the country and winning races. Much of this success launched the engine business that became his career and passion. Precision Automotive, Inc. allowed Norman to be involved in the development and assembly of engine combinations that ranged from Daytona to regional short tracks throughout the Northeast. Norm's engines won countless race features, from street stocks to asphalt Modifieds, Pro Stocks, Late Models and Super Modifieds. Many track championships followed with these victories, where Norman was in demand for his ability to use his common sense approach and gift of finding more power and reliability for his customers. It was at Riverside Park in Agawam, MA that Norman met his wife of 28 years, Linda-gail (Bryant) of Southwick, MA. Both Norman and Linda spent many weekends at Riverside Park, Stafford, Monadnock and other Oval tracks tending countless customers and friends who ran with "Precision Powered" engines. While building big horsepower for racing, Norman also had a master's touch building the rarest of engines, one for his own 1929 Packard, a 30 year project that was worth the wait. His engines and machine work will grace roads and garages for many years to come. Norman and Linda often debated where they would retire and came together with the same response: North Granby. Their home sits back from the road, which gave them privacy and, as Linda is often quoted: "the perfect place for best friends to retire: the house that Norman and Jesse built". It was imperative for both Linda-gail and Norman to thank his medical team, Dr. Philip Glynn, Oncologist, Mercy Medical Center and the team from Noble Hospital Oncology: Cindy, Donna, Cara, Anna, Denise and Sue. Seven members in the field of Oncology who were truly angels. Norm was preceded in death by his father, Jesse L. Case, Jr., and a special aunt and uncle, Estelle and Preston Case, and his mother-in-law, Julie Bryant. Besides his wife Linda-gail, he leaves to morn his passing - his mother, Ruth B. Case, and his three brothers and their spouses - Kenneth and Sue of Simsbury, Richard and Linda Sue of Bloomfield and Stanley of Sebastopol, CA, and the special bond that he shared with his business partner Dale Hall, Justine, Scott and Lisa. The sudden loss will, as time goes on, bring back memories of a Son, a Brother, and a friend. To family and friends, the best way to honor Norman, was to think of him from time-to-time and be happy in the relationship you shared with him. Cancer - it cannot take away your Faith...shatter your Hope ASCIICHAR_2026 or lessen your Love...Cancer - it cannot destroy true Friendship...invade the Soul or take away Eternal Life...Cancer - it cannot conquer your Spirit...Friends may call at the Vincent Funeral Home, 880 Hopmeadow Street in Simsbury in Tuesday, July 15th from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM. Burial services will be private. Please visit Norm's "Book of Memories" at www.vincentfuneralhome.com for online condolences.

Truman Ernest Alderman Jr. married Beatrice Petts Pearce in 1954. Truman Ernest Alderman Jr. died on 7 July 2019 at UCONN Health Center, Farmington, Hartford Co., CT, at age 88.1 He was buried on 20 July 2019 at Center Cemetery, Burlington, Hartford Co., CT.

From the Hartford Courant, 14 July 2019:

Truman Ernest Alderman Jr., 88, of Unionville, CT died peacefully on Sunday, July 7, 2019 at the UCONN Health Center in Farmington. Born in Bristol on November 21, 1930, he was the son of the late Truman Alderman and Marie Stalk Alderman Noble.

In his early years, Truman attended a two-room school house on Jerome Avenue in Bristol. He began working at about age 10 at the Malerbo family farm across the street from his home. During World War II, at about age 13, he worked in a local bakery and he also drove a milk truck for years due to the shortage of help during the war. He was a graduate of Bristol High School in 1948. He went on to attend General Motors Institute in Flint, Michigan from 1948 to 1952 and in four years earned two degrees, one in Mechanical Engineering and another in Electrical Engineering. Beginning in 1948, he worked at the New Departure - Hyatt Division of General Motors in Bristol, and retired as Sr. Facilities Engineer in 1990.

Truman married the late Beatrice Petts Pearce in Unionville in 1954. They had two children, The Rev. Dr. Keith C. Alderman and the late Clifford Thomas Alderman. Truman and Bea were married for 62 years, and lived in Unionville for more than 56 years. For many years he was a member of the Congregational Church of Burlington, where he served as a Deacon, a Sunday School teacher, and member of the Business Committee. Truman was twice a Past Master of Village Lodge No. 29 of Collinsville, and was a 50-year member of that organization. He served a two-year term as Associate Grand Marshal for his Masonic District. He was also a member of Columbia Chapter No. 31, Lee Council No. 25, and Washington Commandery No. 1 K.T. of East Hartford. For more than twenty years he was the secretary of The Shrine Sphinx Temple Motor Patrol. Truman had fun doing the mechanical work on the mini jeeps, and for many years enjoyed participating with the Motor Patrol in countless local parades. He loved the friendships formed with his fellow Shriners. For more than a decade after his retirement from New Departure, he drove children to the Shrine Hospitals in Springfield and Boston. Other interests included sailing, scuba diving, soaring, flying, cooking, and amateur radio. Truman loved dogs and cats, especially his beloved Airedale Terrier, Rosie, and his orange cat, Charlie. Truman had a keen intelligence, a great sense of humor, and will be missed by all who knew and loved him.

Truman is survived by his son, The Rev. Dr. Keith C. Alderman and his wife Penny of Westminster, MA, and his brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Tom and Marilyn Pearce of Conklin, Michigan and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his wife Beatrice, and a son, Clifford. Truman's family would like to thank Ms. Sue Robotham, who was a care giver and compassionate visitor for him and brought great joy to Truman in the last months of his life.
