Domenico Termini passed away on December 31, 2013 in Phoenix, Arizona surrounded by his loving family. Born in southern Italy, Domenico grew up in Baucina, Sicily, and arrived on October 20, 1920. He proudly served in the Italian military. On January 9, 1949, Domenico married the love of his life, Josephine Abbruscato, in Italy. Shortly after the couple married, Domenico traveled to the United States to make a home for his family. Working as a carpenter in New York, he would save his money, so that he could send for Josephine. He was proud to be a member of the Carpenters Union. When the couple was reunited in New York, they decided it was time to expand their family. Together, they had three daughters and two sons. As their children grew, so did their family. Domenico and Josephine were blessed with five grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren with another great-grandson on the way.

In the 1980's, Domenico and Josephine decided to move their roots, and headed south to Arizona to be closer to their son while he was a student at Arizona State University. Spending time with his family was something Domenico enjoyed doing, the hunting trips they shared brought them closer together. Making homemade wine was another hobby that Domenico shared with his family. Taking trips to California to get the grapes, and bringing them home to start the process, and seeing it through to the end brought a smile to Domenico's face. Having a smile on his face was not unusual for Domenico. He was always smiling, his loving nature showed in everything he did. He had a wonderful sense of humor as well. When Josephine would talk to him, he would turn the volume on his hearing aids down, and pretend he couldn't hear her. He would just smile. His kind smile is forever in our memories, and we will cherish it always. His love for Josephine is eternal; he held her hand for almost 65 years. Holding her hand brought the last smile to his face. Their love for each other was an example for us all.
