Longtime Dresden resident and US Air Force Major Vladimir Lomakin passed away peacefully at the age of 84 on Wednesday, August 31, 2022. Vladimir and the entire Lomakin family have long been passionately connected to the Pownalborough Court House, living just next door to the austere building. For more than sixty years, the Lomakins have shared in the stewardship of the Court House. This included the often frustrating task of listening to the Court House alarm beeping throughout the night before an LCHA volunteer could check on the building; reconstruction and renovation after two lightning strikes; the construction of the pergola alongside the Court House (built by Vladimir’s late son); and countless other efforts.

LCHA joins Vladimir’s family, friends, and acquaintances in remembering Vladimir’s life and legacy and offers our condolences to the entire Lomakin family.
