Tonawanda man to receive tech honor from Obama


Tonawanda News — They married in 1960, and McCombs said his wife picked out a home in the town, where they still live.

And everyday at lunch time, McCombs drives the 2.8 miles home to have lunch with his high school sweetheart. 

“We love Tonawanda, and we’ve never been sorry for sticking around,” he said. 

His wife, his two closest friends and his 12-year-old neighbor will accompany McCombs to the ceremony. 

“He is like a grandson to me,” McCombs said. “I’ve known him since I held him after he was born ... and he’s so excited, he’s making such a big deal about it.”
