  2. May he rest in heaven sorry for your loss we remember him from volunteering at northeast c fund great funny will be missed

  3. Let me tell you guys, this man was my absolute favorite customer I met from the Pawn King.. Our bond started by us both sharing a love for motorcycles and anything bad a**!!! He always made my day when he would stop in !! He always had some sort of cool toy, whether it was his motorcycle or little chopper bikes he would bring by to show me. But the memory I will never forget that made his impression lasting: was a few years back while I was working at the Pawn King. Shirley and Me were the only two people working. It was a bad day, we were stressed beyond our limits running ragged! Dominick came in and I was so busy, I felt so bad I couldn't chat with him like we normally would. He said it was no worry, I'll come back later.. A few hours later, He did indeed come back but what he brought made my day!! He brought both me AND Shirley roses! He came in carrying a box, and peeking out I could see two vases. There was two beautiful roses in there own little vases, with a touch of babies breathe and wrapped with a box of love… I'll never forget him or that day! He was an amazing person, and I'm glad to have crossed paths with him!

  4. He will be missed. Sucks I didnt get to say hi when he tried to contact me a couple of months ago! This is proof that tomorrow is never promised! Rest high Dominick
