Corey Mel Lombard

January 4, 1969 ~ April 13, 2017 (age 48)

Corey Mel Lombard, 48, passed away Thursday, April 13, 2017, in a one car accident.

Corey was born in Michigan City, Indiana on January 4, 1969.  He is the son of Lloyd and Pennie (Jagodka) Lombard. 

He is survived by his parents; his brother Christopher (Heather) Lombard of Michigan City, Indiana; a nephew, Dakota Lombard of Michigan City, Indiana; aunts, Patricia Dean of Indio, California and Mary Lombard of Michigan City, Indiana; uncles, Wayman (Arlene) Lombard of Boca Raton, Florida and Donald (Dorothy) Lombard of Luther, Oklahoma; and many cousins.  He also leaves behind his very close friend, Desirae Moisan and the two chihuahuas they share, Emma and Spike; and a wide circle of friends of all ages.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Melvin and Anne Jagodka and V.B. and Viola Lombard; aunts Joyce Moisan, Jacque Lombard and uncles, Ron Lombard and Donald Dean.

Corey lived life large.  He embraced new interests with passion, whether it be politics, U.S. History, Lombard family genealogy, Marvel Hero comic books and movies or advocating the benefits of union labor membership.  Corey was a meticulous carpenter who was a proud member of Carpenters’ Local 1485, LaPorte, Indiana.  He will be remembered for his booming voice and he will bring smiles to our faces when we share with each other his many escapades.

The family will receive friends from 3-6 p.m. Wednesday, April 19, 2017, at Frank L. Keszei Funeral Home, Essling Chapel, 1117 Indiana Avenue, LaPorte, Indiana.  A remembrance will follow at 6 p.m. 

Friends are cordially invited to share in refreshments at the Carpenters’ Hall, 1104 6th Street, LaPorte, Indiana, 46350 immediately after the remembrance service.

His cremated remains will be buried with his maternal grandparents and great grandparents at Patton Cemetery, LaPorte, Indiana, at a later date.

Memorial contributions may be made to the LaPorte County Animal Shelter, 2852 W. State Road 2, LaPorte, Indiana 46350 or the family.

Please share memories and condolences with the family at Essling funeral
