Haynes and Terminella also remembered Combs for his varied interests away from work - from art and Asian-style architecture to rare automobiles and flying helicopters.

"There wasn't anything that guy couldn't drive, fly or operate," Terminella said.

"He was a delight when you got him away from the normal business environment," Haynes added. "He knew a lot about history and he was probably one of the greatest and eloquent storytellers I've ever been around.

"And to take up flying a helicopter on your own, just as a hobby? Give me a break. He only knew how to do things at full torque."
