He came to the United States on January 31, 1931 at the age of 7 with his mother Gelsomina Lombardi, following his father Pasquale Lombardi who had immigrated to the U.S. ahead of his family. He was preceded in death by his wife of 69 years, Edith Lombardi; his parents, Pasquale and Gelsomina Lombardi; his brothers, Anthony (Eileen) Lombardi and John (Judy) Lombardi. Mondo is survived by his seven children, Linda (Mike) Norris, Elizabeth Oliva, Robert (Susie) Lombardi, Catherine Yerich, Jane (Tom) Paskell, Patricia Cantwell and John Lombardi.

Lombardi & Co. in 1953 and practiced accounting and tax consulting for 22 years. He merged the practice in 1975 with the former Touche Ross & Co., an international accounting and consulting firm, and became the Managing Partner for the Columbus, Ohio office.

Sorry for your loss. I worked for Mondo in 1975-77 while I was in law school. That income allowed me to finish school, and I am forever grateful.

My most heartfelt condolences to the family. Mondo was one of a kind and will be deeply missed. He hired me in 1976, and I still have the original offer letter from Touche Ross signed by Mondo. He was a terrific mentor and shaped my professional development. One of my most treasured memories was winning the Bearfoot Classic (Muirfield Village member-guest tournament) as Mondo's partner. I am so very sorry for your loss. Mondo's memory will always shine brightly and his influence will endure.

Mondo was one of a kind. You do not meet many people like him throughout your life. He was many things, most of all, a true gentleman. Always a kind word and that smile. There just are not many people like Mondo in this world. He made this world a better place.

We humbly offer our respects to an American hero, Mondo Lombardi. The brave men left from WWII may be few in numbers but they shall never be forgotten for their courage and sacrifice. We never met or knew Mr. Lombardi, and that would be our loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.
