marra-domenico-wJanuary 28, 1943 – November 19, 2016
at the age of 73 years

Domenicos mother, Carmela, Birthed him on January 28, 1943 in a bucket, in a shed, in an olive orchard, during an American air attack near Avellino Italy. Domenico immigrated to Canada alone at 7 years old expected to find a safe home for his mother and 3 sisters. He was never successful at getting his family here, but he did persevere through many unimaginable struggles to find 17 years of happiness and marriage with Jill, his deceased ex wife and mother of his three sons and 7 grandchildren. He is survived by his oldest son Eugene and his four kids Darein, Micayla, Hanah, and Solmon, second son David and his two boys Azlan and Bodhi, and his third son Matthew and his daughter Olympia. Domenico found his happiness and well being in nature, gold panning, telling tall and some part true tales, and Italian cuisine. Nick was fortunate to have spent the last 18 years of his life supported and loved by Anne Billett on his hobby farm on the hillside of Shuswap lake. He conceded to stage four esophageal cancer at 10:30am Saturday, November 19, 2016 surrounded by family. We will all miss his infinite sayings, tales, and wisdom’s. We love you forever and always…
