From the Richmond Times-Dispatch, 11 Apr 2021:

On Tuesday, March 9, 2021, Wayne Leroy Holcomb Jr. of Poinciana, Florida, loving husband and father, passed away at the age of 73. Wayne was born in Wichita, Kansas on June 21, 1947 to Wayne Leroy Holcomb Sr. and Jean Williams Holcomb. He grew up in Richmond, Virginia, graduated from Hermitage High School and earned his B.S. degree in Business Administration from Virginia Commonwealth University, where he was a member of Phi Delta Omega fraternity. After college, Wayne started a career as a stock broker, but quickly found his true passion in the food service industry. His other, more important, true love was his wonderful wife of 47 years, Dee Ann Johnson Holcomb, whom he married on April 15, 1973. Together, they raised their adopted daughter, Melissa Marie Holcomb Simons. Wayne had a passion for fine food, consuming and preparing it. Attending a dinner at Wayne and Dee's home always brought a hope that the menu would include beef tenderloin and his famous Virginia crab soup. The meal would always be professionally prepared by "Chef" Wayne with the able assistance of "Sous Chef," Dee Ann. He also had a passion for landscaping, turning any yard they owned into the most eloquent and colorful garden; a talent he inherited from his father. He was also an aficionado and reader of all things related to World War II and the Civil War. He was a proud Veteran of the U.S. Army Reserves and loved his country.Wayne was preceded in death by his father, Wayne; and his mother, Jean. He is survived by his wife, Dee Ann; his daughter, Melissa (Wes) of Powhatan, Virginia; grandson, William Charles Simons, also of Powhatan; his brothers, David L. Holcomb (Margaret) of Fate, Texas, Richard D. Holcomb (A.C.) of Richmond, Virginia and John M. Holcomb also of Richmond; and several nephews and a niece. A memorial service was conducted by the Veterans Club of Solivita at the Veterans Freedom Park on March 29. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations may be made to The Veterans Club of Solivita Scholarship Foundation, P.O. Box 581770, Poinciana, Fla. 34758.

From the Hartford Courant, 30 Apr 2021:

Glenn Oliver Griswold, 93, of Manchester, CT, passed away on Tuesday, April 27, 2021 at Salmon Brook Rehab and Nursing Center where he had been residing for the past couple of years after a severe stroke. Glenn was born May 19, 1927 in Bridgeport, CT, the son of the late Harold V. Griswold and Olive Mae Percy. He grew up in Andover, CT with his maternal grandparents and lived the majority of his adult life in Manchester. Glenn joined the US Navy in the Seabees Unit right out of high school in 1945 and was stationed in the South Pacific during WWII. Following the war Glenn joined the Metal, Wood and Lathing trade in Washington, DC and then Hartford Local 78 for 28 years. He then worked for the State of Connecticut at Howell Cheney Technical High School as the head of maintenance until he retired in 1992. Glenn was a huge sports guy. He was a life-long NY Yankees fan, enjoyed the UCONN women's basketball and loved football. He was a coach for the Manchester Little League, the Lawyers, years ago. In retirement he became an avid reader. He also started golfing later in life, and having found his passion he continued until he was 85, but refused to start from the women's tee so that ended his golfing career. He actually made a hole in one in September 2000 at Twin Hills Country Club. Glenn was a good friend of Bill W. for 32 years and it saved his life. He was predeceased by his wife, Doris Lillian McFarland in 2007 after 57 years of marriage. He was also predeceased by his sisters-in-law and their spouses Marion and Charles Chaponis of South Windsor, CT, Margorie and Arthur Highter of Bolton, CT, a cousin Evelyn Donahue of Manchester, CT, his daughter-in-law Gertrude Griswold of New Hampshire and a sister Barbara Hammond of South Norwalk, CT. Glenn is survived by his children Glenn J. Griswold of Nottingham, NH, Dawn L. Griswold of Manchester, CT, Thomas (Anne) Griswold of Manchester, CT, Tammy (Nathan) Primus of Southington, CT, Donald (Gail) Griswold of Tolland, CT. He is also survived by sister-in-law Faith McKenna and Michael Baldt of Manchester, CT, and a very special niece, Stacia McKenna McPherson of Old Lyme, CT. Nine grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren and many cousins. Also, a dear friend Lisa Whatmore of Bolton, CT, and a special friend, Janice Coogan who kept him in line at the nursing home. The family would like to thank Kingsley, Vensi, Sadie, Liz and Tonya for their care and compassion they showed our father through his stay at Salmon Brook.
