Very sorry to learn of Dom's passing. Dom was RE on the West Hazleton expressway, downtown to I-81 before 81 was built, project where I worked with him during my second co-op engineering assignment, in 1965. Dom as a great guy, a very good engineer and had excellent conflict resolution skills. I felt he would do anything for you if you needed it. I continued to enjoy my association with Dom through 1978, when I left PennDOT for IL. Sincere condolences to Dom's family.

Dom was one of the finest gentleman I have ever met. I know Dom for a long time; since he was a member at Elkview, and I served him as a member of the Board at the Sewer Authority. Sympathy to the family, and all the friends he left behind. He will be missed. RIP.

I was privileged to serve on the LRSBA board with Dom at the helm. He presided with honesty, integrity, and professionalism and it was a pleasure to be with him there and at Elview golfing. God bless him and condolences to the family.
