Dominick Mario DiVito, age 85, of Floral City, FL passed away at his residence on January 17, 2017. Dominick was born on November 18, 1931 in Irvington, N.J. to the late Giuseppe and Lucia (Mancini) DiVito.
He was a sanitation worker for the City of St. Petersburg for 16 years before retiring and relocating to Citrus County in 1986. Dominick was a devout Catholic and was a parishoner of Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church, Inverness.
