As an avid sports fan, Dominic enjoyed attending games and following his beloved Chicago Cubs, Bears, Bulls, and Notre Dame football teams.  One of his passions was to watch his sons and grandsons participate in sports.  He never missed a game.

He loved to travel, attending numerous college football bowl games, Disneyland and Disney World, and baseball tournaments watching his boys.  Dom also looked forward to the annual family trip to Las Vegas.

Dominic passed away comfortably and is now cancer free after three years.  Our family is grateful for the love and prayers we have received throughout this difficult time.  We would also like to thank his personal physicians and the entire staff at Presence Saint Joseph Cancer Center for their excellent care and support.
