With sadness in our hearts, we announce the passing of Domenick Papas Giacoletti. Our strong Papa, father, and “hunter” earned his wings on Sept. 1, 2022, surrounded by family. He left us 68 days after his honey, Bernice Giacoletti, who passed away June 25, 2022. Their love has shown us what a “true love story” is in real life.
Domenick was born Dec. 10, 1935, to John Papas Giacoletti and Kate Schalskie Giacoletti. He was married to the love of his life, Bernice Spivey, on Nov. 2, 1957. Papa had a love for the outdoors and enjoyed fishing, hunting, and bringing his family to “The Cabin” that we all loved to visit. He had an amazing ability to teach yet listen, be full of laughter yet intimidating, and even in his weakest moments he always exuberated strength.
His legacy, strength, laughter, and “hunters” intuition will forever be engraved on our hearts and anyone who met him. Our hope is that we can love as he did.
He is survived by his children, Domenick (Terry), Dennis (Julie), and Michael; 10 grandchildren, and 21 great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents; his siblings; his daughter, Kathy, and his beloved wife, Bernice.
We miss you already Papa!
