Dominique Camil Grabosky
1942 - 2019
It is with heavy hearts that we, the Grabosky family, announce the passing of our humble hearted patriarch, Dominique Camil Grabosky on August 5th, 2019 at the age of 77 at his home in St-Hubert, Qc.
Dominique was the faithful companion of Micheline Turcotte and his dearly departed ex-wife Janet Pitcher. He was a beloved father to Peter, Kimberly-Ann and Lee-Ann, grandfather to Jonathan, Natasha, Mitchel, Sidney, Bailey, Alexandria, Mackenzie, Keilym and Ryleigh, as well as great-grandfather to Aren.
His family and friends knew him as a loyal, dignified, simple man of little words with a huge heart. He dedicated his life to serving the public with a smile, always putting the needs of others above his own. He never complained and often welcomed lost souls, both human and feline, into his home without hesitation. He asked for nothing, but held onto everything – even rusted bent nails! His entrancing eyes always sparkled, especially if he was making us laugh at his witty jokes. Laughter was his way to express his unselfish, boundless love.
Dad also was smart, intuitively intelligent. He always amazed us with his talent for accurately guessing the contents of his Christmas presents year after year. Just last week, he proudly learned how to use the pause button on his remote!
He had hidden talents, too. For example, if some unnamed nephews would spike his Pepsi, he could dance a mean polka! He was proud of his previously deceased parents Dora Richardson and Paul Grabosky and his Polish heritage.
When you think of Dominique, he’d want you to smile and laugh, so please celebrate the cherished memories you have of him and remember that in this sometimes cruel world, kind souls, angels still exist amongst us – just one less today.
If you would like to honour his memory with a donation to the S.P.C.A Montérégie in his name he’d smile down on you. If you adopted a cat, he’d laugh and smile even more.
The family will receive condolences at Jardin Urgel Bourgie, 8145 ch. Chambly, St-Hubert (south of autoroute 30, at exit 73) on Sunday, August 18th 2019, noon to 2:00 PM, followed by tributes in the Parlour at 2:00 PM.
