Dominic"Dominic got life right. He understood it at another level. To him, life was about love, honesty and genuineness. Living every moment as if it were everlasting and making every person he came in contact with feel like they were special. I will always look up to him. I am so proud to be his sister. Greatest big brother, best friend, teacher–my hero. Love you Dom." Isabelle

He was the type of person to play guitar in front of PD Hahn and if you saw him on campus, he would never fail to run from across the way and give you the biggest hug and brightest smile. He was a genuine and open person, who would never fail to brighten your day." Anna Dreyer

"The most helpful, loving, compassionate, romantic and happy young man ever. Without a care in the world other than to make others happy, to give his beautiful sister and all his friends enthusiastic hugs and smiles and to just love life, plants, animals and the universe. Dom, his pink shopping bag and his green photosynthetic car will be missed by all. Love, light and peace." Amy and Crystal
