Joseph, Guiseppe and Antonio Lombardo

JOSEPH DOMINICK "BUTCH" LOMBARDO, JR.
GUISEPPE DOMIONO MICHAEL LOMBARDO III
ANTONIO MICHAEL VINCENTO LOMBARDO

On Friday, April 16, 2004, Butch Lombardo entered eternity. He died as he had lived, with his two sons.
Butch was a true man. He was a passionate and protective husband to the love of his entire life, Cindi Sue Lombardo. He was a fully devoted father and friend to his sons, Guiseppe D. M. Lombardo III and Nino M. V. Lombardo I, and his daughter Dara Ann DeSoto. He was known as "Uncle Butch" to countless people whom he loved as deeply as any father loves his own children.
Butch was a hard worker, an inventor, a general "do-it-yourself" genius who could fix anything. He was an artist and a musician. He was an auto mechanic and a woodworker. He was an herbalist and was great with a sewing machine. There was nothing that Butch could not do.
But although his talents were many, his passions were two. Butch loved family, and all that entered his life became family. He was also a passionate follower of Jesus Christ. Butch completed four years of Bible college, then taught at the same college. Although Butch never sought a following, he never lacked anxious listeners. Multitudes sat under his teachings and he taught with passion and conviction, believing with all of his heart that everyone needed to hear the gospel message, from the youngest child to the most seasoned adult. In 2002, Butch started the Sower's Field Bible College to teach God's word to any student hungry to learn it. He taught free of charge, at great personal expense, and would have it no other way.
Butch was born in Kansas City, MO, to Joseph and Emagene Lombardo and is survived by his wife Cindi Sue, his mother Gene, his brother Michael, and his sister Dorothy.

Guiseppe Domiono Michael Lombardo III and Antonio Michael Vincento Lombardo I embarked on a new journey on April 16, 2004. They leave to explore heaven just as they explored so much of this world, side by side.
Guiseppe was a true man of God, a man of conviction. Many knew the passion of his confrontation but none doubted the depths of his love, for he loved with all of himself. Any who knew Guiseppe knew the power of touch, for hugs, kisses, and pats were a common form of his communication. He was an artist, a photographer, and a general collector of everything. He traveled the world and life to its fullest. Most of all, Guiseppe was a passionate witness to Christ. Fully consumed with doing the right thing, often breaking his own heart to either do things right or make them right. Guiseppe loved family unconditionally and prayed for them often.
Nino was life. He had a vibrance and enthusiasm that was matched by none. Anyone in the same room with Nino found it difficult to keep from smiling. He was truly gifted. He was an artist, an anointed worship leader, spoke several languages, and had more great ideas than 20 people could ever accomplish. He was a gifted storyteller and an all around people magnet, with a smile that lit up a room. Nino traveled the world for pleasure but never took a trip without finding someone to talk to about the passion of his life, Jesus Christ. Guiseppe and Nino are survived by their mother, whom they both loved with fervency, and their sister Dara Ann. Memorial celebration will start at 4 p.m. Sunday at the Full Faith Church of Love. Funeral services will be 2 p.m.Monday, April 19 at the Full Faith Church of Love. (Arr. The Amos Family Chapel of Shawnee, 913-631-5566)
