Domenic Fera

March 1, 2023

It is with broken hearts that the family of Domenic Fera announces his passing on Wednesday, March 1, 2023 at the age of 68. Dom died peacefully after a sudden illness at University Hospital in London, Ontario with his wife Debbie and son Chris by his side.

Dom was a loving husband to Deb for 46 years; beloved father to Chris; father-in-law to Meghan; and “Papa” to grandchildren Ronan and Sullivan. He is survived by his mother Assunta; siblings Pat, Mary, and Cathy. He is predeceased by his father Bruno.

Dom grew up in Windsor, and ventured off to Toronto after he married Deb at the age of 20. They made London their home in 1988, and cherished their years on Sunnyside Drive. Dom had a successful career in corporate sales at Honeywell and Bell.  He enjoyed his 15 years of retirement: volunteering at the local food bank, going for long walks with Deb, playing cards with friends, serving as a member of his condo board, and traveling to Colorado to go on adventures with his grandsons. All who knew Dom appreciated his jokes, quiet pondering, endless patience, genuine interest in whatever was important to those in his life, mastery of being present in and enjoying the moment, and ability to not sweat the small stuff.

A Celebration of Life will take place at Westview Funeral Chapel, 709 Wonderland Road North, London on Sunday, March 5, 2023 at 2:00 p.m., with visitation one hour prior. All who cared for Dom are welcome to attend.

A donation has been made. Message from the donator: Debbie and Chris and family, we are so very sorry for your tragic loss. Domenic was a good soul, kind, generous and funny. Paylin cherishes the memories of Dom, one of which he insisted that she take a balloon, with her giving it back, and him giving it back to her to the point where it became a game after the visit, where they mailed it back and fourth to and from London. Sending our love and a proverbial ballon to Dom in heaven. Sending our love and condolences to you all. Gone much too soon. Carlee, Chris and Paylin Xoxo
