John Lombardi John Lombardi, beloved father, brother and friend to all, began his journey on April 5, 1953 in Visalia, CA. He graduated from Mt. Whitney High School in 1971 and then attended College of the Sequoias for two years. Besides his family, his loves included fishing, camping, and spending time with nature. When he wasn't outdoors, he enjoyed listening to and playing music. He held several jobs but none meant more to him than his 11 years as a teacher's aide at Pinkham Elementary School. After 61 years, John's journey came to an end on July 16, 2014. He is preceded in death by his parents, Renny and Ginny Lombardi, and is survived by his son, Nick Lombardi, his sister Sharon (Frank) Bettencourt, and his nephews, Dennis (Judy) and Brian (Jana) Bettencourt and their families. Services will be held on Wednesday, July 23, 2014 at 10:00am at Salser and Dillard Funeral Chapel. Services will conclude with a private burial.
