Obituary for Dominick DiRe

Dominick DiRe, 94, passed away October 3, 2018, at his cherished home in Chicago. Dominick was born in Cantalupo, Italy. He was the first child in his family to emigrate to the United States in 1948, with his wife, Maria Antonietta and son, Vincenzo. He worked hard at several jobs and settled in at Radio Steel Mfg., which produced Radio Flyer wagons, for 34 years. He raised a family of three children and was ultimately blessed with 30 years of retirement. This time was filled with a love for family and friends, hunting, bocce playing, golfing and gardening. He was a master storyteller, a jokester, a self-proclaimed inventor and had the brightest house on the block during Christmas. He was a member of the Molisani nel Mondo Club of which he was very proud.

He is survived by his wife, Maria Antonietta (Catallo) DiRe, son Vincent DiRe, daughters Ann DiRe (Robert) D’Agostino and Camille (Robert) Lajewski. Dominick treasured time with his eight grandchildren which include Dianna (Tom) Ortman, Dominic (Chris) DiRe, Anthony (Sharon) DiRe, Mark and Mia D’Agostino, Maria, Larry (Sophie), and Peter Lajewski. He also loved to dote on his 11 great grandchildren which include Tyler Ortman, Ashley (Jared) Zobel, Nick, Alyssa, Luke, Dani, Michael and A.J. DiRe, August, Jude and Clementine Lajewski. Survivors also include two sisters in Italy; Antonietta (late Mario) D’Acci and Anna (late Pippo) Tomaselli. Dominick was preceded in death by his parents, Vincenzo DiRe, and Anna (Mazzuti) DiRe; his stepmother Concetta (D’Andrea) DiRe, his brothers, Edmondo (Flavia) DiRe and Gino (late Vera) DiRe, and sister, Lina (late Ezio) Cascella. He was a fond uncle and good friend to many.
