In his 20’s Domenico worked in the Coal mines and served in the Navy in Belgium for one year. He came to Canada in 1956 where he worked many jobs in construction, mining and finally a Supervisor for Ontario Hydro where he retired after 23 years of service. While working building the high school on Manitoulin Island, he met Nedera and was married in 1969. He was a loving stepfather to his children, offering support whenever needed. He also cared for many Foster children for whom he was a great role model and offered a secure home life. Even though many years had passed he remained close with one in particular, Sara.
He was a hard-working man and loving son, brother, husband, father, uncle, Papa & friend. In his younger years he enjoyed travelling, hunting, camping, snowmobiling, racing stock cars, riding dirt bike & motorcycles. He lived his life to the fullest, making the most of every day. After retirement he found new ways to keep himself busy. His New Office was at Tim Horton’s where he would meet his friends for his daily coffee and conversation. He was a very social man who was always on the move. His days were spent socializing with friends at the mall and Tim Horton’s and enjoying his walks at Science North with Pauline. He was also a lover of dogs and chipmunks. He always had his dog biscuits and peanuts on hand should one come along. Most of all he loved spending time with his family. He has left a void in our lives, but we are thankful for the many special memories over the years that we will cherish forever. Gone but not forgotten, you will remain in our hearts forever.
A graveside service will be held at Mountainview Cemetery in Little Current on Wednesday, August 16, 2023 at 1:00 where he will be laid to rest with his wife Nedera.
