Dominick Joseph Caito III, (48), of Newark, New York, entered eternal rest on October 28, 2023, surrounded by his wife and children. Dominick fearlessly fought Leukemia for almost five years.
Dominick was born on June 23, 1975, in Geneva, New York. He was the son of Claudia Symonds Seehoffer (deceased) and John Caito (deceased) and the oldest of four siblings.
Dominick, fondly known as Dom, went to Midlakes High School before starting a career in carpentry and remodeling. He took great pride in creating unique and beautiful homes for his loyal customers. He spent many years working for various companies before he opened his business, Caito’s Carpentry & Remodeling Construction, in 2016.
Dominick held many titles in his life, but his favorite roles were being a husband and father. Dom loved his family more than the breath of life itself. He enjoyed spending his free time outdoors, fishing, kayaking, hiking, camping, and hunting wild mushrooms. Dom was a very passionate “foody” and loved cooking, baking, and creating recipes. Despite spending so much time in and out of the hospital, he never lost his sense of humor or his love for the little things in life. He was a beloved patient always keeping his care team laughing; his ability to make everyone around him smile will be greatly missed.
Dom will be remembered for his unrelenting zest for life, his ability to love those around him unconditionally, and his fun-loving personality that never ceased to fill a room with laughter.
Dominick was predeceased by his parents, Claudia Symonds Seehoffer, and John Caito, and his grandparents, Margaret, and William Symonds. Also deceased is his loving dog Sadie who added so much joy to his life for almost 19 years.
Dominick is survived by his wife, Erica L. Caito, and his children Alyssa A. Leubner (Caito) and her husband Eliot R. Leubner, Krista M. Caito, Zackery W. Caito, and Autumn N. Caito. Also surviving are his four siblings, many aunts, uncles, and cousins, several nieces and nephews, and close friends.
There will be a private celebration of Dominick’s life for immediate family and close friends.
