Dominic was a family man and enjoyed time spent with family. He most enjoyed the days spent at the beach and river. He planned for his daughters first camping trip to be this summer. Dominic enjoyed cooking, shopping, drawing and hundreds of more activities. He loved going up to Smith River to visit family, he loved it up there. Dominic entertained himself with nights he won’t remember, with people he would NEVER forget. He also loved getting new ink and loved driving. He enjoyed his life in Humboldt but wished for a better life.

He planned to move to Sacramento and attend college but this next year.
