Dominick was an Army veteran of World War II having served in a medical unit in the South Pacific. He worked for Wheeling-Pittsburgh Steel for 42 years. He was an outstanding soccer player for the Dunlevy Redbirds having played into his early 40's. Hunting with his son and grandsons was a passion for him.
We honor Dominick by remembering him as an amazing person who played a unique and special role in all our lives. He was living proof of how fine a person can be – a genuine individual with a rare friendliness, contagious smile and a huge heart. He always had time to listen and quick to offer help when needed. Dominick was completely dedicated to his family and will be sorely missed by all who loved him dearly.
