Gil Dominick
Adonizio Funeral Home

Pittston, PA

Gil Dominick, 82, of Wyoming, passed away Monday evening, Dec. 6, 2021, at home surrounded by his family.

Born in Keystone on July 22, 1939, he was the son of the late Gilberto and Argenia "Gina" Loreti Dominici.

Gil was a graduate of Wyoming High School and Bloomsburg University. He proudly served in the U.S. Marines.

Gil married his wife, the former Connie Zanta, in 1965, and they moved to Williamstown, where Gil was employed as a teacher. A year later, they returned to Wyoming to care for his parents and worked in the family business, Gina's Pizza and Pasta, for over 50 years. He served on the Wyoming Area school board for 20 years, holding positions of president, secretary and treasurer. He was past president of the Pennsylvania School Board Association; past president of the Wyoming/West Wyoming Lions Club; and an active member of the Spark of Life Organization.

Gil loved being around his grandchildren. He enjoyed telling them stories about when he grew up and how times have changed. He loved politics, which was evident by his many years of community service. Gil was always looking to help others, whether it was to find a job or give them one. During his retirement, Gil was able to spend more time with his family and enjoyed doing his "scratch off" lottery tickets. It always made him smile to scan a ticket that was a winner and then let one of his grandchildren scratch the ticket not knowing they would win. Gil never complained about being sick; even in the end he would just say he was tired. Gil will be greatly missed by all.

The family would like to especially thank Dr. Ronald Nardell, nephew, for always being on call and ensuring Uncle Gil had the best care. They would also like to thank Dr. Saidman and Pricilla from Medical Oncology Associates; Dr. Horvik and Stephanie from Radiation Oncology; Dr. Gibbons, and Kim Schultz for their care and compassion. A special thank you to Ralph and Sandra Nardell as well as Ida and Bobby Robbins for their daily care packages. And an additional thank you to Aunt Sandy for always making sure dad had his pills and making sure he took them by bribing him with scratch off tickets. Lastly, we would like to thank all of our family and friends who have sent cards and prayers for Dad over the last few years.

Surviving are his wife of 56 years, Connie Zanta Dominick; children, Brenda DeRenzo (James Barton), Orwigsburg; Gil Dominick III (Cheryl), Harding; Jodi Stello (Jeff), Malvern; Connie Pascoe (Jeff), Schwenksville; Leslee O'Donnell (Michael), Malvern; and Joseph Dominick (Jennifer), Wyoming; grandchildren, Alexandria, Nick and Joe DeRenzo; Logan and Miranda Dominick; Martine, Dominic, Madison and Carly Stello; Carson and Gavin Pascoe; Charleston, Maddon and Rylon O'Donnell; and Abigail and Zoey Dominick; great-grandchildren, Dempsey, Duke, Sabol and Frankie; sisters, Lillian Dominici, West Wyoming; and Sandra Nardell (Ralph), West Wyoming; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Many years ago Gil created a job for my dad when he was in between jobs to help my family during hard times. That was not & will never be forgotten. He was also always very good to me. My heart goes out to his wonderful family. He will be missed very much.

Gil was so very kind and generous when I lived with my 2 children above Brackney Leather many years ago when it was next to Gina's. He was a great neighbor and sweet man. God bless his family. He will always be remembered.

Dear Connie and family. We were so sad to hear of Gil´s passing. Reno tried to contact him before we left for Florida. He even went to the house. Reno and Gil shared many memories and would love to talk about the good ole football days and being part of Gina´s boys. Please accept our deepest sympathies.

Gil and Family, I am so sad to hear of your dad's passing. He was a genuine and respectful man. I will never forget all of his support over the years. I am going to miss him racing across 8th Street to beat the traffic and throwing his hand up to acknowledge my 'beep'. He is in my thoughts and prayers.
