Joel Dominguez, Jr.

Joel Dominguez, Jr., a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend passed away peacefully on December 11, 2023, surrounded by his family. He was born on June 16, 1947.

Joel had a vibrant personality that attracted people from all walks of life. He was very social and could make friends with anyone he met. His outgoing and caring nature endeared him to everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him. A proud military veteran, Joel served in the army and dedicated himself to his country. His commitment to service was an admirable trait that he carried throughout his life. In his free time, Joel enjoyed watching westerns and people-watching. He found solace in nature and loved fishing and spending time outdoors. Traveling with his beloved wife was another passion they shared together. Additionally, Joel enjoyed the thrill of gambling with his wife; it brought them entertainment and joy.
