Memories Timeline



  2. Dutch was a pleasure to work for when I was just rookie in the labor gang. He will be greatly missed. God Bless, Mike Madigan

  3. I will really miss Mr. Domolewicz. I will miss his teasing me, and our ” is she heckling me?” game. What a nice man ,for sure. One of the finest. Please know your family is in my prayers. Linda Burdette

  4. I remember “Dutch” being such warm and gentle man who I was an outstanding friend of my Father and his brothers. A gentle man who watched over me when I worked summers in the mill. I will always remember his warm and friendly personality and compassion to those around him. He touched the lives of so many in such a positive manner.

  5. Mrs. Domolowicz, Donna and Family, I just found out about “Mr. Dutch”. I am so sorry for your loss. He was such a great person and always had something funny to tell us. My Mom always looked forward to seeing him each day, he could always get her to laugh. I’m sure you will miss him terribly. MY love and prayers to all of you. Former Neighbor, Carol (Bundy) Black

  6. We read of your loss in the local newspaper. We wanted to offer hope and encouragement, which we ourselves have found helpful in the death of close family members. Please be comforted to know that others are praying for you to have the strength to cope with your trial. May you find hope in the promised resurrection, “Your dead ones will live. … They will rise up.” (Isaiah 26:19) Jesus Christ himself said: “Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.”-John 5:28, 29. Confidence in the resurrection will help to ease your sorrow. As the Bible says, you will “not sorrow just as the rest also do who have no hope.” (1 Thessalonians 4:13) Rather, you will draw close to God in prayer, and the Bible promises “he himself will sustain you.”-Psalm 55:22. Please look up these scriptures in your copy of the Bible. Sincerely, The Davis Family

  7. Uncle Dutch never seemed anything less than a top notch husband, father, and grandfather. His family was very lucky to have had such a man in their lives.
