He loved and deeply touched all his family. Dominic was born January 20, 1950, in Indiana, PA. He later moved to Cleveland, OH. Dominic attended Father Judge Mission Seminary High School in Monroe, VA from 1964-68 and Layola Chicago University from 1968-69. He joined the Navy in 1969 on the “buddy plan,” except his buddy who talked him into joining the Navy never showed up! He graduated from Cleveland State with a major in drama in 1978. For many years, Dominic worked at the Cleveland Wade Park VA Medical Center. In his spare time, Dominic enjoyed playing pool, basketball, and checkers. He taught his nieces and nephews to play, as well. He also enjoyed playing bingo and painting canvases.
