David Lombardi Obituary
Lombardi, David
1961 - 2018
David Leon "Dave" Lombardi, age 56, was born June 12, 1961 and passed away on Sunday, February 4, 2018. A 1980 Hilliard High School graduate, Dave was a life-long lover of nature, especially being outside on sunny summer days and warm summer nights, all things swamp and insects. He loved to find bugs, collect them for study and could even make realistic sounds like some of them, crickets in particular. He loved rock and roll, the blues and to play the harmonica, which he always had with him. Dave loved the Southern California Lifestyle and weather and cheered for Notre Dame and Michigan - not the Buckeyes. He was one of the resident artists at Open Door Studio, Grandview where he loved to draw and use his imagination. He also enjoyed whittling and creating sculptures in wood. He touched many people with his humor and his unique outlook on life. Preceded in death by his loving father and closest companion Joseph D. Lombardi Sr., his older brother and protector Joseph D. Lombardi, Jr. "Joey", close friends and Uncles Adam "Lum" Lombardi and Edward "Eddie" Lombardi. Survived by his devoted and loving mother, Anna Leona Lombardi; brother and biggest advocate, Steven Lombardi (Brooke); nephew, Ely; and many loving cousins, aunts and uncles in Ohio, California and Florida, including his cousin and special friend, Rick Schultz and his close friend and Uncle Fred Lombardi; and his Aunt Gloria Lombardi McFadden, who was like a second mother to him. The family is grateful for the loving care provided by Sall Amadou Bangoura, Diamilatou Diop "Jami" and the staff of Prosperity Care. Friends and family may call Friday, February 9, 2018 from 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. at the JOHN QUINT TREBONI FUNERAL HOME 1177 W. Fifth Ave, Columbus, with a funeral concluding visitation at 12:30 p.m. Burial to follow, Sunset Cemetery, Galloway.
