His most valued possession was his family. Domingo was a loving son, brother, uncle, father, grandfather and faithful friend, who knew the value of family and took care of the people he loved. He was the tower of strength that kept our family together, he was a loyal friend to those who had the privilege of knowing him.

He will be remembered and loved always by his family at friends. Visitation was at Dodge-Thomas Funeral Home, Glen Cove, Funeral Mass at the Church of St. Rocco. Interment East Hillside Cemetery.
