Former INCANTATION bassist Joey "Fingers" Lombard passed away on January 3, 2012 at the age of 42. A resident of Windber, Pennsylvania, he was most recently employed by Lockheed Martin in Johnstown.

Commented INCANTATION drummer Kyle Severn: "Joey was one of the nicest people you could ever meet.

"Joey had stepped up to the plate and joined John McEntee and myself back in 2000 to create some of INCANTATION's finest blasphemy to date!!! He stuck with us for five-plus long years of writing and traveling the death metal roads!! He was an amazing musician and bass player. He had contributed more than most could imagine to the death metal scene. He had made many new friends through those years on the road; he was such a likable guy. I don't think he had a mean bone in his body. He will be truly missed.

"Services will be held in Johnstown, Pennsylvania Sunday evening."

Joey was preceded in death by mother Gladys (Byrne) Lombard and brother William Lombard. He is survived by father Dennis Lombard and wife Mary, Florida; wife of 16 years Cynthia (Headrick) Lombard; stepdaughter, Ariana Lamer; sisters Cathy, wife of Steve Aviles, Ohio; and Christine Lombard, Florida; and nieces and nephews, Brian, Rebecca and Emily Aviles; Cori Headrick; and Tyler and Karson Headrick; also godson Skyler Stiles.
