Dominic Conicelli Obituary
Dominic L. Conicelli, 86, of Collegeville, formerly of Conshohocken, died peacefully on October 20, 2018 He was the beloved husband of the late Florence (D’Orazio) Conicelli. He was born in Conshohocken, PA on October 11, 1932 to the late John and Anna (Santi) Conicelli. Dom was a graduate of Conshohocken High School class of 1950 and Villanova University class of 1954. After college, he entered the US Army and served our country in Germany for 2 years. After coming home from the service, he married the love of his life Florence, whom he met when they were only 12 years old. Dom started his career in the automobile business after he returned from the service at GMAC. Dom became a self-made business person in the community when he then broke off on his own starting a small used car dealership, Hy-Speed Auto Sales, in Norristown where he eventually branched off into Carriage Trade Public Auto Auction and 5 new car franchises to follow, which his family still operates today. The dealerships motto is “A Nice Place To Do Business” as always portrayed by Dom himself, “Mr. Nice Guy” the dealerships mascot. Dom had a devotion to the surrounding communities and was a supporter of many of the local charities and groups. As a child, Dom had a love for horses. He saved money from his newspaper route just to ride them on weekends. As opportunities came later in life, he was able to live out his dream of raising and showing western horses. Dom’s horse community of friends brought him great joy and he was humbled to be honored on October 17, 2018 to be inducted to the National Reined Cow Horse Association Hall of Merit. Dom was also the President of the ARCHA, Atlantic Reined Cow Horse Association and help build the association to what is it today. Dom was a member of St. Eleanor Church in Collegeville and the former SS. Cosmas and Damian Church in Conshohocken. He is survived by his devoted children Donna M. McNally and Brian, Lori L.

Dom was a loving and devoted husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather and friend. His generous and loving spirit will be missed by everyone he touched. He loved to joke and make people laugh and feel comfortable. Dom has touched so many people with his inspiration and words of wisdom that will not be forgotten. Most of all, he always said his and Florence’s greatest accomplishment in life was their children and family.
