"You are forever in my heart . . . until we meet again . . ."

Dominick Pino was kind, loving, generous, and was the light of his family's lives. He was known for giving abundantly of perhaps his scarcest resource: his time. "The purpose of life," he would say, "is to pass it on." In addition to being a dedicated husband and father, this meant passing on to others his hallmark wisdom and humor. He was a wonderful man who always saw the virtues in others. He was the always the 'first,' whether it was to hear any good news that came along, offer a helping hand, or to teach a valuable life lesson that only comes with age to his children.

He enjoyed a successful career as an engineer, first working for Raytheon as a systems analyst. He had a curious mind and inquisitive spirit that never stopped. Although Dom had a true talent for his work, his passions extended far beyond the office. He loved taking professional quality photographs that would capture life simple moments from his family's laughs and smiles from when they were young to his many trips back home to Sicily. He maintained a private photography studio with a group of friends where he taught classes, collaborated with artists, and experimented with new techniques. "Painting with Light" was a recent project. He was a masterful teacher and loved helping others. His fluency in English, Italian, and his native Sicilian dialect fueled his love of connecting with friends and family both new and old.

His interests ranged from physics and chemistry to astronomy and etymology. Those close to him were likely to receive a text message from him in the late evening hours that, astoundingly, combined all four.

Music played an important role in his life. If he knew you had an interest in music theory, he might pull you aside to tell you, with great enthusiasm, about the relationship between the diminished 7th chords on the accordion. He often expressed gratitude for his parents, who gave him "the gift of music, which is a way of speaking when words won't suffice." Poetically, in the days before his passing he labored to speak but was still confident sitting at a piano to play "The Girl from Ipanema."

Mr. Dominick A. Pino, of Medford, died at home surrounded by his loving family on Monday, July 13, 2020. He was 76 years old.

Dom was born in the small Sicilian village of Castanea delle Furie to the late Antonino and Angela (Quartarone) Pino on June 12, 1944. Later in life he still considered himself a villager at heart, citing that as the basis for his easy connection with people of different cultures but who also had roots in small, tight-knit communities. As a young boy he moved with his family to the United States for a time before returning to their native Sicily when he was seven. At fifteen he moved to Rome for school and completed his education in the States, graduating from Everett High School and earning his bachelor's degree from the University of Massachusetts at Lowell; his beloved 'Lowell Tech'.

Dom leaves his beloved wife, Sandra 'Sandy' (Prevost) Pino, his children, Anthony A. Pino (Camille Vasquez) of Cambridge, Angelina V. Pino of Medford, and Marcella Siano (Frank) of Waxhaw, North Carolina; his grandchildren, Sofia, Miabella, and Enzo Siano; his sister, Melina Balboni (Narciso) of Stoughton and his former wife, Rita Pino; his brother and sisters-in-law, Cathy Prevost of Nashua, New Hampshire, and Frank and Carol Prevost of New Smyrna Beach, Florida, and his nieces and nephews, Scott and Michelle Balboni of Foxborough, and Cristina and Tim Taylor of Walpole.

Family and friends will honor and remember Dom's life by gathering for his Funeral Mass on Thursday, July 16th at 11:30 a.m. in Saint Joseph's Church, 118 High Street, Medford. Burial will follow in Oak Grove Cemetery, Medford.
