    Andrew Alfonso LaCombe

    ROANOKE, VA. — Andrew Alfonso LaCombe, 74, passed away at his Roanoke, Virginia, home June 11, 2014, with his family by his side.

    Andy taught music for many years in the public schools of Colorado, Alaska and Vermont. He was a member of several community bands in Vermont before moving to Roanoke after his retirement from teaching.

    He continued to be involved in music by composing songs, and he left a large number of completed works. In addition to his love of music, Andy was an avid gardener, an enthusiastic world traveler, and a lover of books and puzzles of all sorts.

    He is survived by his wife of 51 years, Sylvia, of Roanoke; son Carl of Marlborough, MA; son Alan and wife Tracy of Bellows Falls, VT; two grandsons: Timothy of Beaufort, SC, and Christopher of Bradford, VT; and brother, Dominic, of Springer, NM.

    He was predeceased by his father, Alfonso, and post-deceased by his mother, Ediria, both of Springer, NM.

    A celebration of Andy’s life will be held at Fenton and Hennessey Funeral Home in Bellows Falls, Vermont, at 2 p.m. Saturday, June 28 with the Rev. Telos Whitfield officiating. The family will receive friends at the funeral home immediately after the service.

    In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Grafton Cornet Band.
