Whit­ney Pier

Cape Breton Post - - Obituaries -

It was with great sad­ness that we an­nounce the sud­den pass­ing of Ge­orge Domanski, age 74, on Fri­day, May 19, 2017 at home.

Born in Syd­ney, Ge­orge was the son of the late John and El­iz­a­beth Domanski of Whit­ney Pier.

Ge­orge was known as a man who never kept idle and was well known in the Pier for the per­son they al­ways saw clean­ing out­side around his home and the im­me­di­ate area and al­ways made sure they were kept clean, rain or shine. Some peo­ple call him the “Speed­ster” that walked very fast through­out Whit­ney Pier. Ge­orge loved to go into the stores and joke with staff. He lead a sim­ple life and only needed the ba­sics to live. He was an avid fan of wrestling and was up to date about the weather fore­cast and could tell you ex­actly what was com­ing our way. Ge­orge en­joyed his vis­its from his great-neph­ews, Ryan and Tyler Whalen when home on va­ca­tion. He will be missed by all who knew him.

Be­sides his par­ents, Ge­orge was pre­de­ceased by his brother, John Domanski; sis­ters, Ju­lia (Domanski) Tell and He­len Domanski.

Ge­orge is sur­vived by a brother, Jerome ‘Jerry’ Domanski; three nieces; three neph­ews; as well as sev­eral great-nieces and great-neph­ews.

Cre­ma­tion has taken place. Visi­ta­tion and me­mo­rial ser­vice to cel­e­brate the life of Ge­orge Domanski will held at Pier Com­mu­nity Fu­neral Home, 1092 Vic­to­ria Rd. (en­trance on Church Street), Whit­ney Pier. A gather­ing of fam­ily and friends will take place on Thurs­day, May 25, 2017 from 7-9 p.m. and Fri­day, May 26, 2017 from 12-2 p.m. with ser­vice to fol­low at 2 p.m. in the All Faith Chapel with Fr. Paul Mur­phy of­fi­ci­at­ing. Light re­fresh­ments will be served in the fu­neral home re­cep­tion area fol­low­ing the ser­vice. In­ter­ment will take place in Res­ur­rec­tion Ceme­tery, Syd­ney Forks.

In lieu of flow­ers, do­na­tions in mem­ory of Ge­orge may be made to the Heart & Stroke Foun­da­tion or to a char­ity of one’s choice.

He­len Domanski Whalen (niece) gives a spe­cial thankyou to John Maza­lin (nephew) who al­ways dropped in or called to make sure if Ge­orge needed any­thing and to oth­ers who would call or drop in as well.

Fu­neral ar­range­ments are en­trusted to the care and di­rec­tion of Pier Com­mu­nity Fu­neral Home.
