Dominic was very devoted to all of his family. His love of small children was legendary. He cooked amazing pasta dishes for his grandchildren and was a willing babysitter. He loved airplanes, history, reading, and watching television. He was always willing to help his family when needed. A stubborn old school Italian in many ways. He still remained remarkably balanced and only looked for the good.
Dominic will be missed by all and even though we had you for 90 years it still felt short in many ways. That is why we will love and miss him terribly.
