Lomma loved driving 18-wheelers cross country. His dedication and hard work eventually allowed him the opportunity to own his own trucking company. Lomma was a loving person and he never met a stranger. He was generous and caring, and would do for others even if it meant he did without. His favorite pastime, when not driving a truck, was to watch numerous episodes of Andy Griffith. He will be dearly missed by all that knew and loved him.
