Lewis Albert Domenick, Jr., 91, of Oakland, MD, died November 30th, 2019, at Dennett Road Manor Nursing Home after a long battle with Parkinson’s Disease.
Born September 4, 1928 in Piedmont, WV, he was the son of the late Lewis A. Domenick, Sr. and Concettina (Masticoni) Domenick. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by two older brothers and two older sisters, all originally from Piedmont.
Lew was a graduate of Piedmont High School, an Army veteran, a graduate of Potomac State College, Shepherdstown Teachers College, and West Virginia University, where he received his Master’s Degree in education. He was employed as a school teacher at the new Southern High School in 1954 and later as a supervisor for the Garrett County Board of Education. Upon retirement, he assisted his son at Domenick Signs in Deer Park, MD, where he worked until age 78. He was an avid sports fan and enjoyed many other activities in his youth such as skating, swimming, and playing cards. As many friends will attest, he was a man of very sharp wit and humorous anecdotes.
He is survived by his wife of 65 years, Connie (Harvey) Domenick of Oakland; son, Barry Domenick and wife Sharan of Oakland; son, Dr. Mark Domenick and wife Teresa of Oakland; and daughter, Ronni Domenick of Grapevine, TX. He is also survived by his granddaughter, Dr. Natalie Sridharan and her husband Dr. Shaum Sridharan and their son, Sunny, and their daughter, Mina, all of Pittsburgh, PA; and a grandson, Ryan Domenick and his fiancé, Lauren of Salt Lake City, UT.
An educator to the very end and beyond, he requested his body be donated to the West Virginia University School of Medicine, Anatomical Gift Registry. A private family service will be planned at a later time.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Garrett County Animal Shelter, 152 Oakland Sang Run Road, Oakland, Maryland 21550 or HART for Animals, 1265 Bumble Bee Road, Accident, MD 21520.
