Dominick DiLorenzo, a 38-year resident of Garth Road, died on July 20 at White Plains Hospital. He was 98 years old.

In appreciation for his service to the Garth Road community, a bench was dedicated in his honor at the entrance to Scarsdale Manor last August.

I'm sorry to hear of Dominick's passing.
I work at the bank and it was a pleasure serving him for 20 years.
He was always a kind and generous gentleman.
He will surely be missed by all of us at the bank.
May he rest in peace with his beloved wife Anne.

Your father was such a wonderful man, I was lucky to have known him. I will miss our chats at The Gatehouse, and I hope it helps to know how much Mr. D was loved by others too. He will be missed. Rest In Peace.

I had the great pleasure of working with Dominick on the Scarsdale Manor Board for many years, he was a great friend and mentor. He cared deeply for everyone living here. He and Anne (Mrs. D), out of respect I would never call her anything but Mrs. Dilorenzo when I would call Dominick
I remember asking Dom to back me on some items on my agenda and he did the same; when we had to spend money. He would insist that we spend money on certain projects, I would say NO at first and he would sway me and say we need it I would give in and he would say I was a little cheap (we always joked that way). I will miss that banter.
Dom was a great person and I am glad to have met him and had him in my life, we have a bench on Garth Road to remind us of him. He will never be forgotten.

Dominic, "Dom," became a household name, synonymous with Garth Road. He was totally involved, and responsible for making this area a beautiful, safe and desirable place in which to live .He was justifiably proud of his many accomplishments, and now there is a lovely, new bench outside his co-op, in his honor, for those who enjoy just sitting awhile. He was an avid tennis player, and lover of America and things made in the USA, especially his car. He will live on in the minds and hearts of all his friends and neighbors. Rest in peace, as you watch over Garth Rd from your home above, with your wife, Anne. Thank you, Dominic..
