We are learning more about the man whose life was tragically taken in a motorcycle crash along Erie's bayfront parkway, Friday night. Dr. John Lombardozzi, as we've been reporting, was a neighbor to us here at the station. His chiropractic office is right by our TV studios. His sudden and tragic death on Friday, has us learning that his professional skills went far beyond seeing patients in his office. Lombardozzi was also the creator of what's called the Chi Rope. It is described on his website as a device delivering multi-dimensional stimulation to restore balance. Some of the testimonials about it, claim it's prevented people from getting back surgery. Lombardozzi created it, to connects mind and body for total health and well being. The website www.chi rope.com also offers DVD's and claims other products are still being developed. Lombardozzi also offered consultations and lectures upon request. But it's something that came to a hault Friday night, when around 9:30, Lombardozzi, a motorcycle enthusiast, was thrown from his motorcycle and his bike hit a light pole along the Bayfront Parkway. He was wearing a helmet, but the coroner says he died of severe head trauma. He worked on bikes and engines for years and even built engines for the Budweiser Indy 500 Racing Team. He got into chiropractic work after hurting his back. His obituary in our print partner, the Erie Times News, says there will be no calling hours but friends may attend a funeral mass at Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Erie, Friday at 10am. ###
