June 27, 1956 - October 12, 2020
Dominick B. Battaglia Jr. of Rehoboth Beach, DE (formally of Wilmington, DE) was born on June 27, 1956 to the late Dominick B. Battaglia, Sr and the late Nancy Carol (Wills) Battaglia and passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family on October 12, 2020 after a courageous 3 year battle with Larynx Cancer. Dominick received his early education at Sacred Heart and Christ Our King Elementary Schools and graduated from Salesianum High School (1975). He was employed with Pepsico in Houston, TX and with the Delaware River and Bay Authority as a Toll Collector from 1990’s-2000’s Spending time with family was important to Dominick and he really enjoyed Shooting Pool, playing Darts, Chess, cards and hanging with his nephews and friends. As an avid Philadelphia Sports Fan (especially the Eagles) one of his greatest highlights was watching the Eagles win the Super Bowl in 2018 with his brother Bruno. This day was really special because Dominick had recently been released from Thomas Jefferson Hospital from his initial battle with the Larynx cancer that nearly took his life. Although Dominick had already lost his ability to physically speak he was still able to cheer for his team and the enjoyment he had on that day will always have a lasting impression on his family. Dominick took up walking in his last year and at times walked around Rehoboth and the surrounding areas for as many as 30 miles in a day. He was very proud of his walking accomplishments and loved to share this number of miles walked with his family. He leaves to cherish his memory his loving family: Sisters Carmella Battaglia, Rosemarie (Battaglia) McGuire (Jim), Linda Kay (Battaglia) Crist (Darin Sr); Brother Bruno J. Battaglia (Sharon); Aunt Vickie Ahern; Uncles Victor Battaglia and Basil Battaglia along with a host of nieces, nephews, family and friends. In light of the COVID Pandemic and Dominick’s wishes services will be private and limited to immediate family. We thank you for your understanding during these difficult times.
