Patrick learned to become a chef with a passion for creating his own recipes and sharing his love for food with those around him.  For a brief time, he was able to fulfill his dream and was the owner and chef of Church Street Café & Bistro in Fairhope, Alabama. He joined the family of insurance adjusters at CNC Catastrophe of Mobile in 2005 and held the title of Auto Claims Manager up until the day he passed.

    My sincere sympathies to Pat & Ann and the entire Dominick family. You all again have each begun another unsolicited journey of grief. Though we walk these journeys with others grieving the same loss of their own we travel our own on our own. I will hold you all tenderly in prayers. That our God will undergird you with his presence and strengthen you in your weakest moments. Do not get lost in the darkest part of your grief. On the other side of it is the light brought by the life and love of having had Pat Jr We are only in this life briefly, a vapor compared to eternity. Give thanks for the 41 years and cry out in grief that it was too short.

    Much Love and Prayer
