Kenneth Paul "Ken" Holcomb
May 25, 2024


Kenneth Paul Holcomb, “Ken” age 69, of Anderson, formerly of Pleasant Plain, Ohio passed away Saturday, May 25, 2024. He was born on December 20, 1954 in Mariemont, Ohio. He was a graduate of Goshen High School in 1973, where he played football and threw shotput and, most importantly, won the heart of his high school sweetheart, Audrey. He attended Earlham College after high school. Ken was a Royal Ranger Commander for many years where he trained young men to be lifelong servant leaders and Christlike men. He loved fishing, camping, and cooking “Jimmy Light Specials”. Those adventures fed the stories he would tell for years and years. Most of all, Ken loved the Lord with his whole heart and never stopped telling others of the Lord’s abundant blessings. He considered his biggest blessing to be his family. In his own words, “For me there really is nothing else but my God and my family. Really what else do I need. When I think of my family I must thank God. When I think of God, the evidence of his faithfulness is found in my family.”

Ken first came to Anderson, Indiana to build the original North Anderson Church of God. This project was where he learned that building churches was his calling. He credited his success to wisdom and knowledge given from the Lord. He prayed for wisdom often. The only thing he prayed for more often was God‘s favor and protection for his family. He, his mother (Lois), and his grandmother (Elsie), all prayed for three generations of descendants. He was a man of prayer above all else.

He is survived by his wife and childhood sweetheart, Audrey. He has four children: Tamra (Ehab) Agayb, DeeAnna (Matt) Robins, Matthew (Beth Nicholson), Caitlin, and his dog Ruthie. He has five grandchildren, Amierah, Maren, Alyssa, Reed, and Graham.

A graveside service will be held on Wednesday, May 29, 2024 at 10:15 AM at East Maplewood Cemetery, Anderson, officiated by Pastor Gary Cook.

In lieu of flowers, friends and family are encouraged to donate to Samaritan’s Purse.

If you are reading this, Ken would want you to know that you are a loved and cherished child of God. He would also say to pray without ceasing. In his words, “God always answers my prayers. Therefore I should pray.”
