What happened to John Combe from Hometown?

According to a report by Starcasm, the American television show Hometown's John Combe was one of the most lively and memorable people to ever cross paths with Erin and Ben Napier, the hosts of the show.  The Hometown's John Combe episode now, unfortunately, doubles as a goodbye to the 70-year-old John, who moved to Laurel, Mississippi after spending a decade in Belize and a lifetime globetrotting before that.

The Napier couple hosted the series and renovated people's homes and documented the entire process. What made John Combe different from other participants was his 'sky is the limit' remark, wherein he stated that there is no particular budget for the renovation of his house and the host couple can have an unlimited budget to renovate his home. He was probably the only contestant to do that. He had unimaginable and wonderful reactions to his new bathroom and his new huge shower and he was overwhelmed by the Napiers’ work and kindness. When Erin compared John’s new back patio area to the beachside comfort he’d known in Belize, John stated that he thought it was heaven.

The host of the show, Erin Napier took to her Instagram and wrote a tribute to John Combe while sharing a few pictures from his newly renovated home. Her tribute read, "Though we only had the pleasure of knowing him for a few short months, we are heartbroken to tell you that our friend Mr. John Combe from one of our favorite episodes of all time passed away on April 4 here in Laurel. He squeezed every last drop out of life, and I’m honored we got to help make his last earthly home such a special one. Even the biggest, most generous hearts don’t beat forever, and his will be so missed. ❤️ #HGTVHomeTown" You can see Erin's post for John here.
