August 18, 1920 – July 31, 2020
Domenico Ruggia, 8/4/1920 - 7/31/2020 just four days short of celebrating his 100th birthday, Domenico Ruggia passed on July 31, 2020. Domenico was born in Campagna, Italy and members of his immediate family migrated to the USA as he did, and others to Germany. Domenico was a professional cabinet maker and furniture artisan. His home is filled with a number of his beautiful pieces. In 1982 he married Marie Dow who passed in 1992. During their marriage they traveled to Europe including Germany and Italy on a number of occasions. Domenico cared for his mother through the end of her life. He is survived by his stepson, nieces, nephews and their children here and in Germany. More recently he always ended his phone conversations singing “Arriverdverci Roma.” God rest his soul.
