Dominic was devoted to God, his family, and country. Dominic’s love of music and the arts permeated his life, leading to a newfound love of painting after age 70. In 2008, Dominic had his paintings exhibited at St. Joseph’s College in Brooklyn and the National Art League of Douglaston, New York.  His  artwork  now proudly hangs in the homes of his family.
