Robert Braeden Patton Combs, age 18, of Chalybeate, departed this life after a tragic accident in Butler County on Sunday, November 10, 2019. Braeden was born in Lexington, KY on June 1, 2001 to Alison Patton Holland and Robert Shannon Combs.
Braeden was saved at Pleasant Union United Baptist Church, and later moved his membership to Rolling Hills United Baptist Church, where he remained a member. He was a former student of Edmonson County and Madison Central High Schools. At the age of fifteen, he became a junior volunteer firefighter and remained an active member of the Chalybeate and Bear Creek Volunteer Fire Departments. He was employed by the Edmonson County Road Department, a job he was extremely proud of. Most recently, he had started training to obtain his CDL license. For a period of time, while residing in Richmond, he was an employee of Miller Tire and Auto Care, and also an associate at the Waco Volunteer Fire Department.
Braeden had a contagious smile, endearing personality, caring heart, incredible work ethic and such a zest for life. He never met a stranger. If you were his friend, he always had your back. He loved to work, and whatever project you were engaged in he was eager to help. From an early age, he loved to work with his father and he was considered as one of the staff members at Combs, Parsons and Collins Funeral Home.
