Todd Combs, 40, husband, father, son, brother and friend, died Wednesday, Aug. 13, 2014, in a car accident.
He was born Sept. 1, 1974, in Great Falls, Mont., spending most of his growing years in Lewistown. His parents, Ron and Karen Combs, raised Todd and his sister, Lori, with a strong work ethic, a love of the outdoors, and to put family above all.
After graduating from Fergus High School, he enrolled in Montana State University in Bozeman, receiving a bachelor of science degree in civil engineering in 1998. He went to work for Graham Dietz & Associates in Cody, Wyo. He left Cody in 1999, to work as a project engineer for Toothman Orton Engineers. While working in Boise, he met Stephanie Glarborg. It was immediate love, and he and Stephanie were married in Weiser in 2002.
Megan Anne was born in 2003, and Allison Lee completed their beautiful family in 2006. Todd had a great love for his daughters. He passed on his enjoyment of the outdoors to his daughters and spent hours woodworking, riding bikes and camping with them.
In 2007, he expanded his engineering skills in land development by joining RiveRidge Engineering. In 2008, he returned to airport engineering with USKH and finished his career with T-O Engineers. He loved working on the design of Friedman Memorial Airport in Hailey and enjoyed spending time with all of the people he worked with at the airport.
He touched many lives. He was a wonderful family person and friend. Everyone that he met became his friend and his smile and sense of humor were infectious. He will be truly missed by all that knew him.
He was preceded in death by his father, Ronald Combs.
Survivors include his wife, Stephanie; two daughters, Megan and Allison; his mother, Karen Combs; one sister, Lori Edwards and her husband, Ryan, and their two daughters, Kerrigan and Lacy.
