March 8, 1952 - May 27, 2013
David “Dave” Michael Dominoski, 61, went home to be with the Lord on Monday, May 27, 2013 following a heroic 26 month battle with pancreatic cancer. He was born on March 8, 1952, in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania to the late Chester and Janice Dominoski. Dave graduated from East Pennsboro High School in 1970 and married the love of his life and high school sweetheart, Linda Stankovic, that same year.
Dave was a building equipment mechanic at Verizon for 34 years before retiring in 2007 and moving to McKinney, Texas in July 2010. He was a devoted and caring husband and father, a beloved friend to many and an avid bass fisherman. He participated in many fishing tournaments around the country and shared his love of the outdoors with his family. He also loved baseball and coached many of his children’s teams and was an active attendant at his grandchildren’s games. He loved his family and the Lord. He will always be remembered for his kindness, gentle spirit and sense of humor.
Dave is survived by his wife of 43 years, Linda, and his two children: Christopher Dominoski of Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania; and Amy Petrof, married to Emery M. Petrof, III, of Plano, Texas. He is also survived by six beautiful grandchildren: Jocelyn (10), Michelle (9), Aidan (5), Zachary (2) and twins Aubrey and Hailey (6 weeks) and a sister, Janice Mullaney of Argos, IN.
