The B.C. Buddy Holcombe Scholarship

Space City Charities formed a $10,000 scholarship in Buddy’s name in 2016 to honor and recognize his long-term service to the credit union.

Buddy Charles Holcombe of Montgomery, Texas passed away on May 4, 2018 surrounded by his loving family.

After serving his country as a reservist for seven years in the US Marine Corp, Buddy spent the remainder of his professional career with Stewart & Stevenson, working his way up to Marketing Director and eventually retiring after 43 years. Buddy was very active in his community, he had been a Master Mason since 1969, served as Vice President of the Lake Conroe Fire Department for 16 years, was on the Staff Parish Relations Committee at the Montgomery United Methodist Church, and faithfully served 48 years on the Board of Directors of Space City Credit Union.

“Buddy was on the committee that hired me in 1994 and was a great role model and mentor to me for the past 24 years.  The credit union has seen tremendous growth and expansion under his leadership and we all owe Buddy a debt of gratitude. He was a big believer in the board setting policy and allowing the staff to run the day to day operations of the credit union.  He was calm, generous, and always brought wit and wisdom to the meetings.  Buddy always put the members best interest ahead of everything else.” said Craig Rohden, President/CEO of Space City Credit Union.
