“Dominic” Thomas Nunziato Jr., born November 11th, 1940 in Woodside, NY to Mary and Dominic Thomas Nunziato Sr., passed away on March 9th, 2020 in Brooklyn, NY. He was 79 years old. He grew up in Woodside, where the Nunziato Florist was a neighborhood institution for decades. He spoke fondly of the family run business, where the large Nunziato clan were all-hands on deck during busy times. At 17, he joined the Navy and was stationed on the aircraft carrier USS WASP, where he traveled the world. Returning from the service, he worked for over 30 years in the US Postal Service, then later in life for 15 years at Kingsborough Community College. He lived in Brooklyn, NY for the past 35 years. He is survived by his wife Cecilia, brother Daniel, children Dominic, Tomasina, and Joseph, stepchildren Sherry-Ann and Kristine, and 9 grandchildren. He was loved and his strong, steady, calm presence will be sorely missed by those whose lives he touched.
