It is with a heavy heart that we communicate that our Brother, our Patriarch, PGK, GDD, PFN, Dominick Ruggiero has passed away.
We all know what Dominick represented. He was the foundation of the Knights of Columbus Council 3536. Someone who kept us in check. Someone who truly lived by and appreciated the principles of charity, unity, fraternity and patriotism until his final hour.
“Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also." John 14: 1-3
The Ruggiero family wanted us all to know how much the Knights meant to Dominick. They knew what an important figure their Dad and Grandpa was in our Council, and they asked us to set up some kind of donation for us to make available so that everyone who knew our Patriarch could make a donation to the Knights of Columbus Council 3536 in his loving memory.
