Domenico was born in Gimigliano, Italy and came to Port Colborne in 1953, and he was employed by INCO for many years. Domenico was a member of the Italian Canadian Cultural Centre and the Port Colborne Bocce Club. He loved to spend time in his garden, but most of all he loved to spend time with his family, especially his grandchildren. A special thank you to Krystal, Dr. Scher and the staff at Douglas Memorial Hospital for their care and compassion with our Dad.
