Obituary of Dominick A Cilmi

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Dominick Anthony Cilmi of Garden City, NY on September 26, 2022 at the age of 92. Dominick was born on June 23, 1930 on the Lower East Side of Manhattan where he was raised in the back of his parents’ grocery store on Broome Street. Eventually, Dom opened up a luncheonette next door during which years he met the love of his life - Carol Monte. The two were married for over 55 years and a courtship that lasted well over 60 beautiful years until Carol’s death in 2021. Together they raised their children Dominique and Anthony in a home filled with love, laughter and Frank Sinatra. His love of family, classic cars and music kept him singing throughout the years. Dominick worked as a court officer, retiring from the First Judicial Department Supreme Court of the State of New York Appellate Division in the 1990’s. He will always be remembered for the pride he took in his summer home on Candlewood Lake as well as the dedication, love and protection of his wife, children and grandchildren. His face would immediately light up at just the mention of their names. Dominick is predeceased by his wife Carol, his parents Vito and Concetta Cilmi, his sisters Sylvia and Mary Cilmi and his uncle John Lentini. Dominick is survived by his children Dominique and Anthony (Andrea), as well as his grandchildren Anthony, Daniel, Alina, Andrew and Christopher. Always with a smile on his face and a kind word, Dominick was very easy to please and did it ‘His Way’. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the Chaminade High School Torch Fund in honor of Dominick A. Cilmi’s memory
