Combs, Hank

09/26/2023 ~


Hank Combs 51, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on August 8, 2021 after fighting to overcome the Delta Variant of the Covid Virus. Otherwise always healthy and never sick, the virus was too strong for Hank to overcome and took him away too soon.

Hank grew up in Spring Texas and served our country in the Army for 8 years. He met and married the love of his life Chanda and became a father to Asheton and Braedon whom he loved beyond measure. He was an amazing husband, father, brother, uncle, friend, son-in-law and grandfather. He was a lover of sports, fantasy football, poker, bowling and an “anytime gathering” with family and friends. Hank loved a good party with the ones he loved and he always had a lot to say.. he loved chatting it up! His laughter was infectious to say the least as it was the most joyous sound you would ever hear. He was quirky in his own special way and created his own vocabulary and sound effects that if you knew Hank you would understand. He gave the ones that he loved their own special nickname, and when he entered a room, not only would you light up with a smile but the entire room would as well. He was also given his own nicknames by the ones who loved him, which included Uncle Hunny and Hockey. He loved a “nak plate” (snack plate) and could create one in an instant. He was joy, he was happiness, and he was a giver to everyone before himself. Hank was never afraid to tell you he loved you. He always greeted you with a hug and said goodbye with a hug and an “I love you”. There are just no words to describe how much he will be missed as he was

Hank leaves behind his wife, his love, best friend and buddy of 22 years ,Chanda Furlough Combs (his Boo). He was Dad to his two sons Braedon and Asheton Furlough (wife Haley), and was blessed to be a grandfather (he wanted to be called Dude) to his first grandson Brazos Furlough. He was Uncle Hunny to his sister in law Christy Huckaby, Best Friend to his brother in law Jeff
Huckaby and was Uncle Hank to his nephews Gunnar, Fisher, Ryder and Taylor. He was brother to Guy Combs who made him an Uncle to four beautiful nieces Gabrielle, Annebella, Sasha and Savanah Combs and he was also Uncle Hank to his niece Carlee Sparks, and nephew Brady Sparks. He was Hank to endless friends who all loved him dearly, and he leaves behind his precious
Yorkie .. his little “Lou”.

Heaven gained a spectacular angel so Fly Hank Fly. Fly like the angel you were on earth and now like the angel that you will eternally be.

    Hank was one of a kind. As a great friend and co-worker, I always enjoyed his company. He loved his family and his Lord, and will be truly missed. Enjoy the streets of gold my good friend – and I will see you again.

  3. My heart was broken when I heard that we had lost our sweet and funny Hank. I had the pleasure of meeting Hank when he came to New Orleans to train with me for his position with Houston. He fit in immediately with our little group and became one of the highlights of working at Kloeckner. He was always sending quick little notes or emoji’s that would brighten my day. I will miss him tremendously and forever smile when I think of him.

  4. I’ve been playing poker with Hank for the last two years in our monthly league. He was easily the friendliest guy there with a huge heart. I will sincerely miss him. It will not be the same. Words cannot express the depth of this loss.

  5. Dearest Chanda and family, I’m so very sorry for the loss of your beloved Hank. May God wrap you in His Holy Spirit and provide you His peace that surpasses all understanding.

  6. Hank was the best workmate in so many ways. We spoke endlessly of history, zero-turn mowers and eye-shadow…. His love for Chanda, the boys and his new grandson were awe inspiring to say the least.
    RIP Hank, your kind heart will be missed by all and God bless your family.

  7. I met Hank back in the mid 90’s at Fort Monroe, Virginia while we were both serving on Active Duty. We quickly became close and have kept in touch over the past 25+ years, either by emails, text, phone calls and then on occasion meeting in Houston for a Baseball or Football game…. sports being a passion of both of ours. Hank was an absolutely great person, every time we got back together, it was as if we never left. His smile and laugh was infectious and his gift of giving a trait I certainly looked up to. Thank you for sharing this wonderful person with us all…, I am so sorry for your loss. Please find comfort over time that Hank touched us all in such special ways. He will be missed deeply.

    Chanda and family – I send my love and prayers to each of you. I feel like I know each and everyone of you by all of the wonderful, hilarious stories that Hank would tell us each day!! He beamed with happiness when speaking of you all. He also brought so much laughter to us at work each day by holding your signs up that would say “quit talking” or “quit stealing my customers” or calling out Eeyore during the day! It just won’t be the same without you. Rest in peace my dear friend.

  13. My deepest sympathy to his sister, Caroline Combs Corgey, brother Guy Combs, brother Roger Combs and widow Chanda. Rest In Peace Hannibal Hank Combs Jr.
