Dominic’s favorite place of all time would be Daytona Beach, FL. He & Beverly traveled there for many years, spending the winters there. Throughout his lifetime, Dominic enjoyed coaching baseball for all of the local kids, as it was his favorite pastime, as well as trying to straighten out the St. Louis Cardinals. He enjoyed planning family parties and get-togethers. His family and friends were always very important to him and he enjoyed visiting with them. He will be greatly missed by all that knew and loved him.
