David J. Pombo Jr., 48, Warren


David J. Pombo Jr., 48, of Water Street, Warren, passed away Wednesday, 

Sept. 25, 2013. He was the beloved husband and companion of Linda Tarantelli for 21 years.

Dave was a landscaper who worked diligently to hone his craft. He was a perfectionist whose landscaping was always pristine, which was more than evident when listening to his clients rave about his work. Dave was employed at Davenports Restaurant and also worked many years at Greggs Restaurant.

Dave was an active member in the Kingsmen and Ocean State Drum and Bugle Corps for many years. It was a passion he shared with his father-in-law, as well as several other family members. He was a motorcycle enthusiast who enjoyed traveling the open road with his wife, son, brother-in-law and sister-in-law. He also was devoted to his four beloved cats, Punk, Dino, Sassie and Sammy.

Besides his wife, he leaves his dear mother, Judy Pombo, and his devoted son, David J. Pombo III. He also leaves two brothers, Jay Pombo (Rhonda) of Tennessee and Anthony Pombo of Kentucky, and two sisters, Tricia Maciel (Richard) of East Providence and Cheryl Laneres (Donald) of Cumberland.

Arrangements are with Smith Funeral & Memorial Services, 8 Schoolhouse Road. Funeral services were Tuesday, Oct. 1, with a service in the funeral home at 10 a.m. Burial followed in St. Jean-Baptiste Cemetery, Warren.

In lieu of flowers, donations in David’s name may be made to the Providence Animal Rescue League, 34 Elbow St. Providence, RI 02903. See www.wjsmithfh.com.
