Once again, the fam­ily would like to thank the staff at the Pines of Pough­keep­sie for their un­yield­ing devo­tion, ex­cel­lent care and great com­pas­sion.

Mr. Lom­bardi’s wife, Ann, passed away there on July 12, 2015, and the fam­ily will al­ways be in­debted to all who as­sisted. Frank leaves be­hind his son, Ben­jamin, and sonin-law, Stephen Kahn. He also leaves be­hind his sis­ters Rita Lom­bardi, Doris McGrath, Rose (Chubby) Lom­bardi and her hus­band Wil­liam Crow­der, and Mary Lom­bardi and her hus­band Roger Gard­ner. Frank was pre­de­ceased by his sis­ters An­toinette and hus­band Char­lie Lig­otino, Fanny and her hus­band Peter Lig­otino, June and her hus­band John (Skippy) Barry, Ber­nice Lom­bardi and Lucy Lom­bardi. He also was pre­de­ceased by his brother, John Lom­bardi, and baby brother, Benny Lom­bardi. Frank had a sto­ried ca­reer in the Hud­son Val­ley, a fam­ily of what would have been twelve chil­dren of im­mi­grant par­ents who set­tled in a small town called High­land. He em­bod­ied the true mean­ing of a small­town son, work­ing after quit­ting grade school to help sup­port his fam­ily. He learned and worked hard to build a mul­ti­mil­lion-dol­lar busi­ness. In later years, after re­tir­ing, he went on to be­come a 20-year elected of­fi­cial as the Town of Lloyd high­way su­per­in­ten­dent. A few years back, he was most proud when he re­ceived his hon­orary High School Di­ploma, is­sued by then-Gover­nor Ge­orge Pataki. His con­tri­bu­tions are vast, rang­ing

from high­way devel­op­ment, mu­nic­i­pal sewer line jobs, and con­tracts with Con­rail, to build­ing soc­cer fields, ceme­ter­ies and end­less and self­less do­na­tions of time and money to bet­ter his beloved com­mu­nity of High­land. Call­ing hours will take place Sun­day, Oct. 30, from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Michael Tor­sone Me­mo­rial Fu­neral Home Inc., 218 Mill St., Pough­keep­sie, N.Y. 12601. A street level and wheel­chair ac­ces­si­ble
