Carl C. Lombard Sr. Obituary

Carl C. Lombard, Sr., 92, passed away as he lived peacefully and loved at his home with his family at his side on Saturday, January 3, 2015. Carl was born in Hartford on May 6, 1922 and was a lifelong resident of Old Colony Beach, Old Lyme, CT. The last nine years of his life he lived in both Avon and Old Lyme, CT. He was always proud of his service to his country in the United States Coast Guard during WWII for which he volunteered and later in the United States Navy during the Korean Conflict. After the wars, he was employed by Colt Manufacturing and Royal Typewriter, both of Hartford. In 1952, he became an employee of the United States Postal Service, retiring after 28 years of employment in the Newington Post Office. Carl's real love was the Democratic Party. After he retired, he spent many happy years on the Democratic Town Committee of Old Lyme, volunteering and working tirelessly for them. Wherever he was he always made lasting friendships that he cherished. Perhaps it was his wonderful sense of humor, his willingness to help others without expecting anything in return or maybe it was his talented card playing and skill at cribbage. Carl leaves behind his three sons, Carl Lombard of Durham, John Lombard and James Lombard both of Newington, his daughter, Pauline Lavallee of SC. He was predeceased by his eldest daughter, Margaret Prattson. Carl's legacy is his grandchildren, Lauren and Jarret Lavallee, Dylan Grace and Spencer Lombard. He enjoyed a very special relationship with his eldest granddaughter, Sarah Prattson of Windsor, who tirelessly saw to his every need and who gave him the greatest gift she could 'to help him go home'. The Lombard family would like to extend their gratitude to all who cared for Carl, to his friends at River Ridge Assisted Living in Avon, especially Doug, and friends, Bob and Marilyn Asal. Funeral Services for Carl will begin on Saturday morning, January 10th, 2015 at Newington Memorial Funeral Home, 20 Bonair Ave., Newington, to St. Mary Church where a Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11:00 a.m. Burial with Military Honors will follow in West Meadow Cemetery. Relatives and friends may call on Carl's family Saturday morning prior to the services from 9:00 to 10:30 a.m. at Newington Memorial. Those who wish may make memorial contributions to the Wounded Warrior Project, P.O. Box 758517, Topeka, KS 66675-8516.
