It is with heavy hearts we an­nounce the pass­ing of Do­minic Paul Marinelli, age 67, on Septem­ber 14, 2017 af­ter the most coura­geous bat­tle with can­cer.

Born in Syd­ney Mines on Septem­ber 21, 1949, Do­minic “Burpy” was the son of the late An­to­nio and Edna (Best) Marinelli.

Burpy was a hard work­ing mem­ber of the Labourer’s In­ter­na­tional Loc. 1115 for many years be­fore he re­tired from North­ern Con­tract­ing Lim­ited. He loved fish­ing, go­ing for drives in his truck, bak­ing, cook­ing and play­ing soli­taire. Ev­ery­one who met Burpy fell in love with his sweet and funny per­son­al­ity.

Left to cher­ish his mem­ory are his wife Mar­ion; sons, Wayne (Katrina) and Paul (Reta); daugh­ter, Kat (Amy); grand­kids, Lo­gan, Sean, Do­minic, Emily and Sawyer; sis­ters, Louise (Carl), Nora (Ernie), Mary (Si­mon), Cathy (David); broth­ers, David (Lynda), Phillip (Donna), Brian (Joanne), Fran­cis (Brid­gette) and John. He also leaves be­hind many nieces, neph­ews, in-laws, friends and his best lit­tle buddy, Lucy.

Be­sides his par­ents, Burpy was pre­de­ceased by his broth­ers, Robert and An­thony.

Also, a huge, lov­ing thank you to ev­ery­one who showed so much love and sup­port.
