Nicola Pietro Lonardo

January 27, 1928 — May 28, 2024


Nicola Pietro Lonardo, age 96, died peacefully in his home in Lakewood, Colorado on May 28th, 2024.  Nicola was born in San Polo Matese, Italy on January 27th, 1928.  He immigrated to Denver, Colorado in 1956 where he began a 33 year career at American Beauty Macaroni as well as being the proud owner with his wife Rosa of Carbone's Italian Sausage Market and Deli for 36 years.

Nicola is survived by his wife of 62 years, Rosa, their sons Antonio (Tina) and Bruno, and their daughter, Gina (Claudio). He is also survived by 10 grandchildren (Nicola, Marco, Matteo, Luca, Andrea (Daniel), Vincent (Marisol), Devin, Sophia, Marcella, and Melena and two great grandchildren, Nova and Nyla. He is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews. 

Nicola was proceeded in death by his parents, Antonio and Rosa, his brothers Michele (IIda), Pasquale, Carmine, Crescenzo (Barbara), and survived by his sister Cristina and sister in laws Elfina and Lois.

Nicola was immensely hard working, kind, gentle, happy, humble, generous and a loyal person with a welcoming smile on his face.  He loved being outside working on his yard, tending to the flowers and two wells that he dug by hand in the backyard. He loved food and wine (especially Italian) and was able to enjoy it all as he was blessed with good health throughout his entire life.  His legacy will truly live on forever in the hearts and minds of everyone he ever had contact with as well as all those reached but never met. If you wish to honor his life his only request would be for you to only remember him with a smile always on your face as his smile is in HEAVEN NOW!
