Our Dad was a good father.
In his younger years he spent his time down the beach and riding motorcycles. Motorcycles were a piece of his heart. He proudly served in the military during World War II and in the Air Force. During his career he worked as a Doorman for the Sheraton Boston Hotel. At his job he had many opportunities to meet celebrities from all around. He was requested by some celebrities because of his genuine personality. For many years he used his roller skates as a means of transportation to and from work which he really enjoyed doing daily. Roller blading and Roller skating was a hobby he stayed true too for years. He had a heart of gold and always wanted to help anyone out at any time. He enjoyed most his time outdoors with us camping, hiking, and often would ride up and down the sea coast visiting family in different states. In his later years of life he spent countless hours sitting at Hampton Beach soaking up the warmth from the sun and watching the bands at the Seashell stage. Dad will be sadly missed for his kindness, love, generosity and his special ways in which we all loved him. Knowing him was an honor. He will stay in our hearts forever and Never forgotten.
RIP Domino Don.
A special thank you to his great grandchildren Damien, Kailey and Keira Lancaster for the care and loving devotion for their grandfather.
