Dominic Voccio, 40, Brunswick, Maine

Posted

Dominic Voccio, 40, of Brunswick, Maine, and formerly of Barrington, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, May 9, 2013.

Born in Providence, RI, Dominic graduated from Barrington High School in 1992. After high school, Dominic lived briefly in Arizona and then moved to Maine.

He was a talented chef who enjoyed fine dining as well as dive diners. An amateur photographer, Dominic made it his goal to visit and photograph all of Maine’s lighthouses. He had an extensive knowledge of music and was an avid enthusiast of classic rock.

He will be remembered by so many for his sharp wit, sense of humor, and ability to make people laugh and feel at ease. Incredibly thoughtful and compassionate, he moved all those who knew him with his gentle and kind spirit.

Dominic leaves his mother, Shirley Voccio of Maine; his father, Frank Voccio of Barrington; his sister, Alaina Voccio of Santa Monica, CA; his niece and nephew, Marissa and Eric Lima, both of Santa Monica; and countless close friends. He was also the proud ”father” of his beloved Boston terrier mix, Zoey.

A memorial service in his honor will be held this summer. In lieu of flowers, donations in his name may be made to “The Dominic Voccio Memorial Fund”, c/o The First, NA, PO Box 940, Damariscotta, ME 04543.

Dearest Dominic, I can not believe you are gone. Over the past year we became so very close. You were always there for me whenever I needed you as I tried to be for you.

When we were last together little more than a week ago, we began making plans to celebrate certain events in each other's lives. How we laughed and hugged and planned! I felt myself growing closer to you as you did to me.

Dearest love, I will always remember where we have been and imagine where we might have been going. I am lost without you.

Dearest Dom, I will forever miss you and forever love you.

Your Fran
