He was born and grew up in Scilla in the province of Calabria, Italy on April 25, 1926. He was the second child of eight and the first of three sons born to the late Marianna Floccari and Carmelo Longordo. Domenico loved his work as Meccanico di Prima Classe in the State Railways of Italy. At the age of 29 he fell in love and married his sweetheart, Anna Marino. To celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary they renewed their blessed vows in the sacrament of marriage, in 2015 at St. Patrick’s Cathedral at a mass presided by Timothy Cardinal Dolan. Domenico, his wife and their 2 children emigrated to be closer to their family in the US and have resided in New Rochelle, NY for 55 years. In his retirement Domenico enjoyed gardening in his vegetable garden, taking walks in his neighborhood, and watching Italian TV. Domenico was a faithful member of St. Joseph’s Church. He is survived by his devoted wife, Anna, his daughter Elvira, his son Carmelo, his oldest sister Antonia (Totina), his sisters Silvia, and Anna Maria with her husband Bruno, his brother Renato with his wife Ariane, his sister-in-law Maria, wife of his late brother Antonio and his brother-in-law Gaetano Marino. He is also pre-deceased by his sister Angela and her husband Giuseppe, his sister Amelia and her ex-husband Clemente, Silvia’s husband Michelangelo and Totina’s husband Giacomo.
