LOMBARDO, JOHN: He was tall, good looking young man, who was part of a very close knit family. There was nothing he would not do for them. He was never critical and always defended the family. John had many friends. He loved a good joke, playing cards, sports, a cold beer and Italian food. He always said he skipped 2 grades in school, the last two. John served in the Navy during WWII and the Korean Conflict. He was stationed in Florida and Hawaii. His wife Rose stayed in Hartford awaiting his return… Unfortunately, she died during child birth in 1946. Seven years later he married Marilyn, and had two more children. Once discharged, John had many jobs until he joined the West Hartford Post Office. He worked there for over 30 years. John always had older cars, that his brother, Frank, would fix weekly. He enjoyed hanging around the gas station where his brothers and friends would stop by. Every vacation the family would start out, the car would break down, we would fix it and carry on.. He passed away in 1988, at 67 years old, and is missed.

He was a 27-year-old lieutenant and executive officer of the destroyer Leutze when the captain was seriously wounded in the battle for Iwo Jima. Grabowsky took command of the Leutze in a harrowing battle at Okinawa and managed to keep the Leutze and its badly damaged sister ship, the Newcomb, afloat, despite an intense kamikaze attack. He saved both ships and most of the crews, earning the Navy Cross. After the Newcomb and Leutze his last command was on US Mason for a short time as Captain.
