Dominic...I just heard and am heart broken. I think of you every time I drive by your grandparents' home and Todd's Tropical Fish store. Your love of fish was infectious and led to quite the aquarium in our house. You and Patrick had so many shall we say..."adventures". I still tell the story of you and Patrick thinking it was a great idea to play dodgeball with rocks at dusk. Only braces saved Patrick's 2 front teeth...you won that battle. Just 2 of many many childhood memories. Taken way so young...RIP...you will be missed.

Dominic,

The last week has been so unbelievably hard. I swear you showed me a sign of you yesterday as I was running around getting ready to send you off. I know you are here with us still and you know how loved you are and always will be. I will never ever forget you and everyday I will live to remind people of the amazing person you are. We grew up together, I can't even really remember a time where I didn't have you in my life. I am so proud of who you became and for you allowing me to be your friend for 18 years of my life. Thank you for everything you taught me in this life and for always being there for me, not letting anyone pick on me (sorry to anyone Dominic had a talking to because of me), always being there for me when I needed you the most. You were always the first person I called when I came to visit from Pueblo when I moved. I always made sure to stop by and see you. You always answered my calls ALWAYS. Even when I went through that bull shit 115 miles away, you were always there to talk to me and give me your advice. Now it is going to be hard to not be able to call you. 4 days before you passed, I was like "I need to call Dominic", and I didn't and now I fucking can't. I love you Dominic and you showed me true friendship in this life. I will honor your life until the day I am taken to paradise. You were so loved. I hope you are always looking down and watching over us little people. You now roll with everyone! I made sure I didn't leave the house this morning without your sticker on my window. I can see you riding with me everyday! Rest in Paradise my friend, my brother.

Love,
Jilly Jills

Where do I begin with my memories of Dom. I knew him since I was 5 years. My family opened up the fish store, Dominic started coming in and helping around the store. I remember how he would always tease me about little stuff, like a big brother would. But those are some of my fondest memories of him, watching him grow from a sarcastic dorky teenager to the amazing funny man he became. I am still in shock that my big brother is no longer here. I love you bro, you just made it to the finish line before the rest of us. I know you’re gonna be waiting for the rest of us to cross the finish line and greet us with a grin and a “what the heck took you guys so long?” You’ll always be my big brother, until we meet again.

I remember when i first seen u at stevinson lexus . I thought this guy looks cool he should come down and work with Ryan and i in the used car department. I seen u was a hard worker in the car wash. We hit it off right away. Ryan and i was sad when u went to work at Harley but it was your passion and i get that. For the short time i knew u i knew we would be long time friends. I talked to u the morning this happened and still can't believe it. So sad your going to missed dearly bro . See u again someday. Your friend always Rob Cameron.

Too soon gone Dom, I hope your family will accept my heartfelt sympathy. May it in some small measure ease their pain. The uncommon vigor and passion in you was obvious, I think, to all. You were the guy people want to be near to feel alive. Because you had that zest of life all around you! It's a damn shame you're gone and you will be sorely missed by many. PROUD TO HAVE BEEN YOUR FRIEND, borski.
