My deepest sympathy to the Dattoma family. Dominick and I were friends since kindergarten and caused many years of mischief at PS4 and in Astoria. Since then we met frequently and had many laughs as we relived those memories over and over again. Dominick was like a brother to me and treated me like royalty whenever we were together. He was always there for me. I will miss you and always remember you. Rest In Peace dear friend!
With love,
Pat, Ann & Family

Sorry we can not be there in person. Dominick was a good friend. He was a very likable person. Joe is not feeling well to attend. You are in our prayers. Your father is in heaven with your Mom. May they both Rest In Peace.

I worked with Dominick in the 8p program in Transit from 1968 to 1972. We had a blast. Both outgoing and gregarious we would out do one another. It laters years it was great to see him at reunions. You could not miss his gravel voice in a crowded room. A friend, a co-worker and a person to love. God rest his soul. May God grant peace to his family.
