Dominic Violi Obituary

Dominic Rocco Violi, 73, of Sandusky, OH passed away April 25th, 2023, at Firelands Regional Medical Center in Sandusky, OH. 

He will be deeply missed by his family, friends, and staff of the Ohio Veteran’s Home where he resided. 

Dominic is survived by his siblings: Carolyn Violi of Richmond Heights, OH; John (Bonnie) Violi of Summerville, SC; Maria (Tony; deceased) Sinegal of Hillsville, PA; Margie Violi of Cincinnati, OH; Michael (Mary) Violi of Niles, MI; Gregory (Marie) Violi of Germany; Rose (Mario) Noce of Orwell, OH. He also leaves behind 20 nieces and nephews, and 24 great-nieces and nephews, all who played a very important role in his life.

Dominic was preceded in death by his father, Rocco Violi, his mother, Margaret (Gelatko) Violi, his sister Helen Christine Violi, and his nephew, John Rocco Violi. 

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.
