Billie Clyde Holcomb, 74, of Page, passed away on Jan. 15, 2013, at the Dixie Regional Medical Center in St. George, Utah.
Bill was born to the late Dick and Isabelle Holcomb on Aug. 13, 1938, in Memphis, Texas. He was the second of three children. He spent most of his younger life in South San Gabriel, Calif., where at the age of 16, a lifelong passion for motorcycle racing began.
For several years, he traveled the country as a proud representative of the Harley Davidson Factory race team. After graduating from Rose Mead High School in 1956, Bill married Janet McClintock on July 11, 1959, in Riverside, Calif.
In 1972, Bill relocated to Page with his wife and two children where he partnered with Larry Miller in opening B&L Automotive. He greatly enjoyed spending time with friends and family on Lake Powell and also found a love for golf. He had a strong belief in family and strengthened those ties with countless family outings which included skiing, camping, and attendance to a variety of racing events. Bill is remembered as a loving and supportive husband, brother, friend, father, and grandfather. He is survived by his wife, Janet Holcomb of Page, sister Jackie Adams of Coupeville, Wash., daughter Paula (Rich) Leightner of Page, son Michael (Kendra) Holcomb of Page, and five grandchildren Kaileigh, Wyatt, Drew, Roxanne and Daylee.
Bill touched our lives with his stories and will forever fill our hearts with pride.
