Dominick was born on June 12, 1942, in Stamford, Conn., to Frank and Palma Posca. He graduated from J.M. Wright Tech in Stamford in 1960.

Dominick was married to Velva (Michelson) Posca, since April 4, 1964, and resided in Stamford until they moved to Redding, Conn., in 1969. In 1991, Dominick designed and built a home in Southbury, Conn., where they lived for 27 years before moving to Brookfield in 2018.

Dominick was a self-employed general contractor for several years until 1984. He was employed by the school system in Newtown, Conn., as Buildings and Grounds Supervisor, where he retired in 2007.

Dominick was a very active member in the communities he lived in, serving as president of the local Lions Club chapter in Georgetown, Conn., board member, baseball coach, and team sponsor at the Redding Boy’s Club of America. He enjoyed summer camping with friends and family at Waters Edge Campground in Lebanon, Conn., and was an avid Ocean Cruiser to parts of the Caribbean and Alaska.

Dominick is survived by his wife Velva; sons Frank (wife Bonnie) of Calhoun, Tenn., and Robert of Danbury, Conn.; sister Grace (Posca) Leven of Bolivia, N.C.; grandchildren Frank, Nathan, Sarah, and Ryan; and several nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by daughter-in-law, Christina (Paulsen) Posca.

    I considered Dom to have been an outstanding resource for the Newtown School System. His skills saved the tax payers hundreds of thousands of dollars. His dedication to his job was profound. He was my valued colleague.

    I first knew Dom in the early 70’s when we were neighbors in Redding. Later, we were neighbors in Southbury. He was a good man, always ready and willing to help anyone and always with a good sense of humor.
