Obituary For Dominic Bonfiglio

Dominic Andrew Bonfiglio 31 years old, collected his wings and joined his grandfather, uncle, and many other loved ones on August 12, 2021.

Born February 8, 1990, Dominic grew up in Rockland, MA and also Hyannis, MA. He was a true free spirit with a fierce love for his family and friends.

Dominic spent his life with his father Paul A. Bonfiglio, his mother Lesley G. Bonfiglio, and his four siblings; Anthony E. Bonfiglio of Mashpee, MA, Matthew P. Bonfiglio of Hyannis, MA, Sophia M. Bonfiglio of Concord, NH, and Pauley M. Bonfiglio of Hyannis, MA.

Dominic spent a great deal of time with his grandparents the late Dominic A. Bonfiglio formerly of Rockland, and Barbara Bonfiglio also of Rockland, MA. He is survived by another grandfather, Barry Megquire of Easton, MA.
Dominic will be deeply missed by his aunts, many uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends.

Dominic loved to laugh, and make others laugh. He was always the life of any gathering. A graduate of Harwich Tech, he played football and pursued a trade in plumbing. He was an avid artist, snowboarder, mountain biker, skateboarder, and bodybuilder. No adventure was too big for Dom, he was fearless!

Dominic was a veteran of the Armed Forces and served proudly as a medic in the Army. He was a true lover of animals and was most recently pursuing a career in the Veterinary field in Denver, Colorado.

Dominic was an old soul who never did anything just a little; he put his whole heart into everything he did. He will be loved and missed beyond words.

The Bonfiglio family welcomes friends and loved ones to celebrate his life on Thursday August 26, 2021 from 5-8 PM in the Magoun-Biggins Funeral Home. A Funeral Mass will be held on Friday August 27, 2021 at 9:00 AM in Holy Family Church in Rockland. Burial will follow in the Holy Family Cemetery.

  • As parents, first we never want our kids to go before us. But when they are younger what we want to hear from others is how respectful and kind they are while at friends' houses. Dom was one of those kids and one of those adults. I loved his fearlessness, his craziness, but with his kindness and the respect he showed me (as a friends' mother) he quickly became one of the friends I liked the most. Thank you Dom for your friendship to my son, the laughs you brought our family, and a peak into the soul of one of the most thoughtful persons in our lives. May you rest in peace now.

  • My condolences to the Bonfiglio family.Dom was a great person and awesome soul he will be sadly missed. Rest in peace Dominic.

  • I have a scenario more than a memory, because it happened so many times, and always left me feeling like a Ne'er do well. Especially of late and I told him this a couple weeks ago and he was ecstatic and I was surprised my validation was even something. Anyways, when I was 18,19,20 I would be heading over to Anita Marie's or Mary Lou's and at 3,4 years old he would ask, with that little frog in his voice, (I think it changed young) "uncle Pete, can I come with you to get coffee or breakfast?" And I would try to catch him off guard and say "well buddy do ya have any money?", and he would keep on strolling after saying "yup". He knew that I hated saying no to him so this cat or toddler, had me down. We both knew it so we would start walking down the hill to end of the street. And I would show him where the big dogs 🐕 live because in our day you met them on the street like people. Besides all this is the best part and the toughest part, we would be happy and walking maybe a few people wave or honk and Dom would be just thrilled and I knew that I meant something to him it's not like loving anyone, I'm sure that any parents will agree knowing someone young can or is showing appreciation for who you are, how you do it, when or why you do or don't do it. Aping the various motions or methods you have, it's a growing soul, looking to you for you. This feeling of being a standard to go by, was amazing to me, and when we walked he would be telling me these amazing stories about that truck going down this road and finding the river, I can't do them justice because he was so quick hopping from one thing to the next and tying it all together. One day on one of those trips I said to myself, damn this kid has me envious of his talent. Four years old and I had been writing free verse poetry longer than he was alive, yet the purity and purpose of his story was and will always be "of the Lord". This hurts

  • Dominic I met on January 2, 2021 when him and our mutual friends picked me up to go skiing. Once I opened the door and looked at Dominic, I knew right then and there that he was going to be in my person. He changed my life and taught me so much along the way. Dominic was the first person to come into my life and showed me what unconditional love was. Dom went out of his way constantly just to put a smile on my face. Whether it was cleaning the apartment, doing the dishes, leaving me sweet little sticky notes, or making sure my day starts off right, he did it. Him and I would always make songs up to the tune of the song we were listening to, randomly bust dance moves out where ever we were and talk in silly voices. I remember one time I told him that I loved hiking. So he says that he knows of one that I would really like. So I said ok. Let's go! He said, that it was easy and I "could totally do it." What he failed to tell me is how steep it was in the beginning. Here I am trying to impress this guy and I'm behind him huffin and puffin 😂 Once I've asked if I wanted to work out with him and I was like "yeah sure!" Well..., he kept telling me, "just one more, just one more... just one more." It wasn't more, it was like 8 more. I've also never laughed so hard in my whole life with someone until I met him., Dom did the most spot on impressions of Mrs. Doubtfire, Randy Savage, Hulk Hogan, Borat, etc. he had me laughing so hard, I fell off my couch. I have so many wonderful and amazing memories with Dominic, I wish I could share them all. I don't know what I did to deserve a man like Dominic in my life, but I am eternally grateful that the universe brought us together and the beautiful time that him and I got to spend together. Dominic reminded me daily of my worth, beauty, strength and how much he loved me and wanted to take care of me. He made an immense impact on my life and for that I will cherish it for the rest of my life. I will never forget him and the unforgettable time that we shared together. I will love him forever and he will always remain my hero. 143 Thank you my love for coming into my life with such light and love, truly making an enormous impact. Thank you for everything you did for me during our relationship. I love you and I miss you immensely. ♥️

  • Dominic and I were very close friends for a few years and I cherish those times. I remember they had a beagle named Jack who got loose and we had to chase him down the block. This hits hard even though we have not seen each other for many years. He had a good heart and was always down to try new things. He will be missed. Thoughts go out to his family who always treated me well. RIP Dom. Doug Hopkins

  • You were a great friend to my daughter Noelle and I will forever be grateful for that. She will miss you Dominic.

It will shed light on the dark days you may have ahead.. making sure you see the good in the world through Dominic's eyes. My heart is broken for you all. Paul and Lesley.. no parent should ever have to experience this loss. I am so deeply sorry for your loss. Anthony, Matthew, Sophia and Pauley.. lean on each other when you feel overwhelmed.. you have a wonderful bond between yourselves, and Dom will be there to keep you strong.
