OBITUARY: Toni D. Barcomb

PORT CHARLOTEE, Fla. — Toni D. Barcomb nee Robinson of Port Charlotte, Florida, passed away on Sept. 16, 2022, at the age of 62 years.

Toni was born May 13, 1960 in Rockingham, North Carolina, to Richard Thomas Robinson and Peggy Jo Grooms.

After graduating from Richmond Senior High School, she went on to receive a Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education from Pembroke State University in 1982.

In 1982, she met Rick Barcomb at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. They were married in 1984 and had two children, Thomas Christian Barcomb in 1991 and Richard Joseph Barcomb in 1996.


Toni was an avid reader. Her greatest passion was cooking. She enjoyed learning new techniques and recipes. Card and board games were always a treat for her. She was intensely competitive at Scrabble. She was so competitive that her husband refused to play against her. He claims that when he knew she had won he would try to concede the match. She absolutely refused the concession and demanded that he finish the game. She would then go on to run up the score against her clearly outmatched opponent.

Toni was predeceased by her father, “Tom” Robinson, in 1999; her mother, Peggy Jo Grooms, in 2015; and her sister, Millie Faye Robinson, in 2017.

She is survived by her husband, Rick Barcomb; her two sons, Tom and Joe; and her three sisters, Bennie Jo Schropp, Pamela Sue Brown and Lisa Renee Langley; as well as numerous nephews and nieces.

There will be a private service for the immediate family. Interment will be at Sarasota National Cemetery.
