Obituary

Lawrence Emil Lombardi (Larry), CPA, died peacefully at his home in Briarcliff Manor on June 7, 2020. He was with his family, including his wife and best friend of 64 years, Patricia (Munnelly) Lombardi.

Larry was born in Mount Vernon, New York in 1940 and graduated from Archbishop Stepinac High School. He went to College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA and received his MBA from Columbia Business School. In 1962, he married Pat, his high school sweetheart. After working for Peat Marwick Mitchell (KPMG), he launched his own certified public accounting firm in 1968, which he guided for almost half a century. To Larry, clients were family.

Larry had many passions but nothing brought him more joy than spending time with his four children and seven grandchildren. He loved coaching Little League and Babe Ruth baseball in Briarcliff, and attending his grandchildren’s baseball, softball, basketball, and lacrosse games all around the state. He is survived by his children Michael of Pound Ridge, NY; Lisa of Larchmont, NY; Caryn of New York City (who also attended Holy Cross), and Cathy of Carrollton, VA; as well as his grandchildren Allison, Christie, Jillian, Tara, and Michael Lombardi; and Henry and Gus Bova. He is also survived by his daughter-in-law Mary (Kennedy) Lombardi of Pound Ridge, and his sons-in-law Dan Bova of Larchmont, NY and Jay Hollingsworth of Carrollton, VA.

In addition, Larry is survived by his brother Ed and sister-in-law Rosalie, and his sister-in-law Marian. He was predeceased by his parents Joseph and Louise (Iorio) Lombardi and his brother Paul.

Anyone who knew Larry saw he had the brain of a mathematician and the heart of an artist. He had a passion for photography, capturing action shots at sporting events and the natural beauty he observed around the world. He was known for photographing each wedding he was invited to and lovingly creating a beautiful album for the couple. He also adored landscape design and specimen trees, and he designed his own home and gardens. An enthusiastic musician, Larry played both clarinet and saxophone in his high school and college marching and dance bands, and he continued to pick up his sax throughout his life. He also loved listening to jazz and country music.

Larry had a gift for living in the present moment, savoring delicious food and fine wine and sharing fascinating stories. He loved to treat the people he loved to home-cooked meals, from crab-stuffed lobster to artfully-arranged antipasto spreads. An avid traveler, Larry liked to be on the go—whether he was driving across several states after working all day to catch a Holy Cross basketball game, or traveling around the U.S. and abroad with Pat and their friends and relatives. Larry immersed himself in the local culture when he traveled, taking unique photographs, exploring off-the-beaten-path restaurants—he was known for being able to find at least one authentic Italian restaurant everywhere he vacationed—and trying to speak the language wherever he went. The last trip he took before he suffered a stroke in 2015 was a vacation to Tuscany with his family to fulfill his bucket-list dream to introduce his grandchildren to a country he loved.

Due to the social distancing restrictions, a celebration of Larry’s life will be held at a future date.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you consider making a small donation to Burke Rehabilitation Hospital, Holy Cross Men’s Basketball Program, or Hospice Care in Westchester and Putnam.

Dear Pat and all your wonderful family,
We will miss Larry's ready smile and enthusiasm for everything and everyone. He was truly a renaissance man in his many interests and skills, especially photography. Just as important, he also took delight in sharing and promoting the accomplishments of not just family, but all his friends. You always have our support whenever you need it. Love, Sue and Jay

Mayo.Now may he rest in peace.
All my love,
