---- — PLATTSBURGH — Mr. Stephen J. Lombard, 62, of Wildwood Estate, Plattsburgh, passed away Thursday, Sept. 5, 2013, at his home under the care of Hospice of the North Country. He was born July 3, 1951, in Plattsburgh, the son of John C. and Janis Marie (Fleury) Lombard.
Stephen was a longtime resident of Rouses Point prior to moving to Plattsburgh. He had a long, distinguished career with U.S. Customs; working at the Toronto airport and the Port of Champlain. He retired in 2006 after 32 years of service.
Throughout the years, Stephen was a member of several area choirs and singing groups where he shared his wonderful voice. He enjoyed entertaining at his home, which was greatly enjoyed by those who attended his functions. Stephen may have missed his natural calling of a gourmet chef. He was however, most at home caring for his brother Mark, as well as helping others.

He is survived by a brother, Dean Lombard and his wife Betsy of Point Au Roche and their daughter Dianne of Lackawanna, N.Y., his great uncles and great aunts; Clayton and Charlene Lombard of Peru, Ronald and Terry Lombard of Clermont, Fla., several cousins and his longtime friends Roger, Donna, Haila and Rod Conant also survive him.
