Domenic enjoyed life at Rapelje Lodge and ribbing the staff in his own way was a daily occurrence. He often praised the employees’ dedication to the elderly and he was extremely grateful for all their help. His daily routine included a workout in the physiotherapy room with the gang and a property walk to make sure it passed inspection. He then tended to his garden, relaxed with his friends at Amalia’s and then went off to lunch at La Farina. An Atlas Steels employee for over 30 years, he enjoyed gardening, cooking and drinking a good glass of wine.
