Nick and I were both teachers in Deer Park High School. He was a wonderful person who really enjoyed teaching. My sincere condolences to his family.

My Dad. I will miss him more than mere words can ever say. He lived and he loved big! He was the most loving and attentive Dad and an even more loving Grandpa. Everything he did in life was full force. He always had a smile and a song to go with everything we did. Including making up songs with our names in them to cheer us up. Skipping through the mall, buying us candy when mom said "no", talking about trees and soil as we walked through the Bronx Zoo until we walked away from him and taking us to the highest point on Long Island to have a picnic only to lose our kites in a tree. We laughed so hard we cried and we got to have the biggest hearted man as our Dad. We are so lucky to have called him ours and we would have loved 100 more years with him. Until we meet again. I look forward to a big hug from you Dad, you handsome devil. Love you Daddy.
Fond memories of a great teacher.. One of my best .
I have wonderful memories of working with Nick at the SBC. May his memory always be a blessing and my heart-felt condolences for his family.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
I was so sad to hear about the passing of Mr. Lombardo. He was my teacher at Deer Park High School and he was truly one of the best.
He told us of his explorations and discoveries along the Bronx River, encouraging us to make an effort to look and see the scientific treasures that exist all around us. The treasures that are there right in front of us.
As a young student, it was the first time I recognized such great passion in a teacher for both the subject (science) and the passion for sharing their knowledge.
I also recognized his frustration with students who did not appreciate those efforts and his strength as he persevered, never - ever willing to give up.
Thank you Mr, Lombardo, for what you taught me and the contributions you made to so many other students. God Bless you and your family.
To the family of Nick Lombardo:
Nick taught in DPHS with my Dad, Coach John Scanlon. I also graduated from DPHS in 1972.
Nick was a well respected teacher by his students and fellow teachers and the staff.
Always a smile on his face in the hallways with a greeting of good morning and have a good day!! May Nick RIP and I hope you find comfort of his passing in the many memories you have of him!!
With deepest sympathies and condolences,
I am heartbroken to learn of Nick's passing . I had the pleasure of helping him and Diane on the hospitality committee and with baptisms for many years. He was tireless. We often talked before mass ..usually about doctors and how annoying they could be. Nick will be missed greatly by the parish and all who knew him. Sending love to Diane and their family
Dad, today we said farewell until that time we are together again. So many people came to say goodbye to you yesterday and to tell Mom how amazing you are. We will miss you terribly, but we will carry on care for Mom and each other so that when the time comes there will be nothing left undone. I pray that your faith has been rewarded and you now sit in what we mortals can not understand but for you it is more they you prayed for.
To all that came to say goodbye, thank you. Your words, your presence validated what we all knew in our hearts that Nick Lombardo was a good, faithful, compassionate man
Rest In Peace Dad.
Terry and I were deeply saddened to hear of Nick's passing. We got to know and love Nick and Diane when we joined the Hospitality Committee. Over the past few years we grew to learn of Nick's involvement in so many charitable and worthwhile organizations even as his health was failing.
He will be dearly missed and we send our sincere condolences to Diane and the Family. With love, Terry and Diane Moylan
My Deepest Condolences to the Lombardo Family. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
I never had the privilege to meet Mr. Lombardo in person but knowing from his Son Vinny he was a wonderful man and father.

I met Nick at Holy Cross. He was a true gentleman - kind, caring and thoughtful. He always had a smile on his face and a warm greeting whenever I saw him. He will be greatly missed at Holy Cross!
I am very sorry to hear about the loss of your father. Just remember all the good times you shared with your father. My deepest condolences.
You were loved so much. You will be missed even more.
I am so very sorry for your loss, thoughts and prayers are with all of you
Many prayers of thanksgiving to God for the life of such a wonderful man of faith. From the very beginning of Holy Cross in Nesconset, Nick and Diane were always more than ready and willing to do anything they could to help the Parish. They are part of the reason why Holy Cross is such a strong and vibrant Christian community today. Nick's "get it done" approach to every task, his warm hospitality, and his great sense of humor were such a blessing to us. The fact that Nick died on Good Friday, is a beautiful reminder that he was a man who was willing to follow Christ anywhere. May he now follow Our Lord into the joy of Resurrection forever.
With love and great respect,
Our sincere sympathy to the Lombardo Family. May he RIP
Sorry for you loss Our condolences
My Brother Nick was the most wonderful Brother and Uncle to me and my daughter and her Children. He was a funny, intelligent and a lifelong Catholic who loved his family, his church and his Mets. When Nick loved he deeply loved. He was my older Brother and we enjoyed many years of laughter together. God has you now. Love you Nick! Rest In Peace with Mom and Dad. Love you always.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
It was with deep sadness that I heard about Nick’s passing. I considered him the older brother I never had. I am glad that I had the opportunity to share many years and memories as neighbors and friends.
The most memorable was the night my sister found a mouse under her bed and Nick and I attempted to catch it. By the time my parents came home, we had the furniture in the middle of every room, never thinking that if we closed a door it would be trapped. We eventually chased it into my mother’s clothing pin bag and drowned it in the tub.
I also remember the numerous nights Uncle Vinny would drive to Fort Schuyler to deliver pasta to Nick because Aunt Laura was afraid that he would starve on the ship!!!
The Montauk picnics were always the highlight of the summer, even if the weather was not.
Please know that Janet and I will be thinking of him fondly and that he was one of the friendliest, happiest people I had the pleasure to know.
We will be also be lighting a candle for him tomorrow in Lisbon.
I have had the privilege of knowing Nick and Diane and working with them on the Hospitality Committee at Holy Cross for over thirty years. Their selflessness and dedication have been a model for all to follow. Nick made every task fun! He greeted everyone with a welcome that was heartfelt. No request was denied if it meant helping the church in some way. The Heavens are rejoicing as Nick joins the other saints for his well deserved reward. He will be greatly missed and remembered with much love.
Nick is one of the most caring and thoughtful people I have ever been blessed to know. At Holy Cross Parish, which he helped found, Nick was the face of Hospitality for about 35 years. He joyous presence will be missed dearly.
Diane, our thoughts and prayers go out to you and the Lombardo family, saddened by your loss but thankful for the many years you and Nick shared with each other. I have no doubt that Nick is already setting up the hospitality in Heaven for our ultimate reunion.
I will always remember your smile and good humor when teaching in Deer Park. You touched so many students and colleagues. Your family was everything to you. May you Rest In Peace and soar with the angels.
Nick, I feel I knew you pretty well from my 29 years as a DP teacher from our many personal meetings (a few times at Southampton Beach Club during our summer break), as well at Deer Park Teachers gatherings. I remember you as a kind and loving person, with an easy smile, and with always time for ready conversation to anyone you encountered. I applaud you for "busting your butt" in the support of your family. May the Heavenly Hosts greet you with open arms and with a wide smile on their faces (IF, that still remains a possibility "up There." My humble condolences to ALL of those of us who loved you, but, especially, your own loving family members. Peter
