I was fortunate to meet Dom about a year ago at a gathering of his 1952 SJP classmates. It was clear that the friendships formed more than 60 years ago were as strong, if not stronger, today than they were then. Dom has been a big help to the Prep School through the years. His energy, humor and keen wit will be missed. My sincere condolences are extended to Eileen and to all of Dom's family.

My sympathies are extended to everyone in the family -- my father Bill Zenner and mother Rosemary Zenner were longtime neighbors and I just wanted to extend my sympathies to the family. May peace be to all of you.

You never would tell us where you found the morels! Where are they Dom? Your friendship was long and treasured. Ladies Day, ski club, watch repair, etc. Lots of good memories. Eileen and family, we share in your loss!

I have known Dom for 43 years, since my first Ladies' Day ski lesson here at Powder Ridge. He continued to teach ski lessons right up to his hospitalization. Weekday mornings we would look forward to his smiling face as he would arrive to teach the young school group.students. He was a great guy and we are missing him. Our condolences to you Eileen and to your family.

Dom was my extremely capable watch repairman for so very long. I always had the utmost faith in his ability to do a super job!! He and that dry sense of humor will be missed by so many!!
