May 28, 2022.  On a Saturday in broad daylight in Stockton, CA, a semi-truck on the same side as Dominic attempted an illegal U-turn and struck him as he rode home on his motorcycle.

He was killed on impact.

Dominic was a medical student performing his rotations at San Joaquin General Hospital in Stockton.   A tenacious worker, he was Bay Area bred and passionate about sharing STEM education to underserved youth.  He believed his purpose was to heal others through medicine. His love reciprocated in abundance among family and his many diverse communities.  Dom loved to snowboard and fish.
