Ray Combs



Former standup comedian and occasional actor Ray Combs is best remembered as a game show host on Family Feud (from 1988 to 1994) and Ray Combs' Family Challenge. He was born in Hamilton, OH, and started out performing standup at a Holiday Inn in Indianapolis. Though he became a successful game show host, Combs had a troubled personal life. He became distraught when his wife, with whom he fathered six children, filed for divorce in the mid-'90s, and he made several suicide attempts. On June 2, 1996, he was admitted to the psychiatric ward of Glendale Adventist Medical Center with head injuries. He was to be observed for 72 hours; however, 14 hours after his admittance Combs hanged himself with a bedsheet in his room.
