Wendell “Fuzz” Lomady 90, of Abington, PA, died on February 21, 2014, at Chapel Pointe Retirement Community, Carlisle, PA.  He was born on Sept. 1, 1923 in Salem, NJ, the son of the late Laura (Hamford) Lomady O’Conner and grew up in Philadelphia.

Wendell is survived by his wife of 62 years, Clara Schroth Lomady, children; Susan Lomady Martin and husband Joe of Carlisle, Nancy Lomady Schale and husband Ed of Shippensburg, Frederick Lomady and wife Maureen of Willow Grove and Judith Lomady Schreiber and husband George of Carlisle, sixteen grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

Wendell served in World War II as a member of the US Coast Guard where he saw action in the Pacific.

He graduated from Penn State University. While attending, Wendell was part of the men’s gymnastic team and served as the Nittany Lion mascot in 1948-49. He earned his Master’s Degree from Temple University.  Wendell retired from Upper Dublin School District where he was a Health and Phys. Ed teacher, gymnastics coach, and PIAA official.  He also taught at Dobbins Technical and Thomas Edison High Schools in Philadelphia.

His hobbies included singing with the Abington Barbershop Chorus and in the Reformed Church of Willow Grove choir where he and his wife were long-time members and volunteers. He was a Penn Relay Official for more than 30 years and taught handicapped children to swim. At Sunny Willow and other swim clubs, “Fuzz” was swim team coach, swim instructor and manager where he enjoyed summers with his family and neighbors.     

Always full of jokes, humor, and laughter, he would inevitably brighten the day of each and every person he encountered.  He will be remembered by all who knew him as a man who was always giving his time, attention, and effort to others to make his community a better place. 

A memorial service to celebrate the life of “Fuzz” Lomday will be held on Saturday, March 1, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. in the Reformed Church of Willow Grove, 1500 North Hills Ave., Willow Grove, PA 19090.  Ewing Brothers Funeral Home, Carlisle, assisted the family with the arrangements.  Memorial contributions may be made to his church or to your favorite veteran’s charity.

Wanted you all to know that you are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Your dad was an extraordinary man who exuded his love of God, family and life in his everyday life to all he met. I remember seeing him and your mom a few years ago when I was visiting with my mom at Reformed Church. He came right up to meet and gave me a great big hug in that old familiar way of his! He will be missed here on Earth, but he is now dwelling in his Heavenly Home with our Everlasting Lord!!! God bless you all.

 Fuzz and I taught together for years at Sandy Run Middle and UDHS. He and the "Lifeguards" brought joy and instruction to the Special studets at the pool. Always upbeat, professional, funny ...a class act everyday. Everyone who knew Fuzz will greatly miss him. God Bless.

I remember Uncle Fuzz cheering me on at my band test at Sunny Willow in the late '60. then at Sandy Run teaching me my first back handspring! He was a great influence in the pool and gym. He will be missed.

My thoughts and prayers are with the entire Lomady family. I always had great conversations with Mr. and Mrs. Lomady. I can picture Mr. Lomady judging swim meets and singing in the Barber shop quartet. He was a caring and generous man who gave all he had to others. He lives on within his son, daughters, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
