Dominick M. Abate of Anderson, SC entered eternal rest on

graduated from Herbert Lehman College in 1974, where he
earned his bachelor’s degree in mathematics. He retired as a
computer technician and relocated to Anderson, SC for a better
quality of life.
Dominick’s love of history led him to trips to Gettysburg, PA,
Stony Point Battlefield, NY and other historical sites in New
York. It also enabled him to create a vast collection of history
books about the Civil War. His hobbies included collecting
ships, nautical figurines, lighthouses and playing music of all
genres. He enjoyed the summers spending time at Long Island
beaches with friends and family.
Dominick was a very caring person who enjoyed helping his
neighbors and using his handyman skills. He loved all his dogs,
Coco, Freddie, Sachi, Tai and Bella where they are welcoming
him in heaven. He will be sorely missed by his family and
friends. God Bless you, Dominick…We love you.
