We lost a big heart today. He will be missed by all. Dominic was a big part of my childhood memories. God we had fun. He was full of joy and laughter. That laugh of his would put anyone in a good mood. I cannot think of growing up in Broadview park without him being around. Things were always interesting to say the least. SHOT OUT would be the words. Never dull moments. All that came from where we did would understand and never forget. I am truly Sorry Artie, Karla, Tony,Amanda, and kids for your loss. Dominic was always good to me and my family as you all were. He will truly be missed. Now he can await us in heaven and make God laugh until we arrive. If you all need anything the Kelly’s are here for you. We love y’all. Kevin Kelly.

Dominic was a great guy I have known him since he was a baby always kind and gentle. He was very skilled at his trade one of the best automotive painters I have seen. He and I always chatted about cars and customizing them he loved cars. He has gone to soon and will be missed prays for his family

Remembering waiting for you on your bench on the patio until you woke up. Waiting to go jump of trees into lakes or run around the neighborhood. How about all them baseball games. How about one last time hitting your hydraulics. Good times good memories.
Rest well!

This breaks my heart! We’re gonna miss you Dominic! Such a great spirited person with a big heart. I’ll never forget all the great times we all had together. Growing up in the neighborhood doing shit we shouldn’t have been doing but loving every minute of it. From riding four wheeler’s, to BMX bikes decked to the nines, to rope swinging lakes, jumping off tall bridges, skateboarding everywhere, to riding Go Karts in the streets like it was nobody’s business. All the while wearing the coolest newest gear like Oakley and OP. Trying to be like Vanilla Ice and crushing on the ladies. Well we at least thought so anyway. Man those were some of the best days of our lives brother. I’m gonna miss you! Rest easy LEGEND!!!

Recent Reviews

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
