Domenico DiMeo, a resident of New Rochelle, passed away on May 31st, 2013, with his family by his side. He was born in Colledimacine Italy to Mariano DiMeo and Maria Falcone and immigrated to the United States in 1956. He was a construction worker who was most proud of having worked on the World Trade Center Twin Towers. Domenico was a fierce supporter and defender of America and the Milan soccer team and was known by all for his love of gardening and especially for growing azaleas, hibiscus, tomatoes and basil. He enjoyed participating in his church, Holy Family of New Rochelle and loved spending time with his grandson. Domenico loved his family and friends and could be counted on to be the first to run and help when asked or needed. He was a man of loyalty, character and integrity and he will be missed.
Domenico is survived by his beloved wife of 54 years, Tisbe DiMeo, his daughters, Emilia DiMeo and Maria DiMeo Calvelli, his son-in-law, John Frank Calvelli and his beloved grandson, John Domenico Maxmillian Calvelli.
