Dominic Anthony D’Angelo played his final round on October 9, 2018. He passed away at FirstHealth Hospice House in Pinehurst, North Carolina. He was 91.
Better known as “Uncle Dom”, Dom D’Angelo retired to Pinehurst from Stonington, CT, 23 years ago and loved every minute of his life in North Carolina. Born in New London, Connecticut he was the 4th of 8 children. Dom attended schools in New London and served his country in the US Army during World War II. Following his military service, he worked with his family in several family owned businesses including Colchester Inn in Colchester, CT, Jill’s Diner, The Oh Boy Diner, Twin Bridge Diner, The Flagship Motel and D’Angelo’s Surf and Turf Restaurant in Groton, CT.
Without a doubt, Dom’s greatest love – except for his family – was Golf. At his best he was a 9 handicap. Dom also scored 4 Holes-in-One. One, on the famous Pinehurst No. 2 Course, two on other golf courses in Pinehurst and one on a golf course in Arizona.
Dom was a kind, Christian and loving man. He was predeceased by his parents, Lucia Santacrose D’Angelo and Anthony D’Angelo, his siblings Jill D’Angelo Caracausa, Elizabeth D’Angelo Smith, Thomas D’Angelo, Salvatore D’Angelo, Philip D’Angelo and Tony D’Angelo. Dom is survived by the love of his life, his devoted wife Jan D’Angelo who he shared 44 wonderful years with, and his loving nieces and nephews.
A private service will be held in Pinehurst.
