Mr. Pombert was a Veteran and proudly served in the US Army during the Vietnam War. He was a member of Piney Grove Baptist Church.
Mr. Pombert will always be remembered as a kind and gentle man who did not know a stranger. He loved to tell a “short story” and always had a pocket full of mints to share. He leaves a legacy for his family and friends in the way that he loved his wife. The love they shared is a beautiful picture of what true love looks like.
