Domenico Putorti


Domenico had two loves. First and foremost was his family, mother, father, brothers, sister and their children. Second were animals especially horses and goats. Domenico was the caretaker of his parents until they passed away. His brothers were business partners and supporters. Though he never had children his nieces and nephews filled that gap. He teased them and spoiled them as his own. He was born in Italy then when he was 14 moved to Canada to be with family. There he learned the painting trade of which he wasn’t fond. But fortunately a brother moved to Gloucester County and they bought a horse farm. He was the horse whisperer before there was a horse whisperer. He drove an older model red Dodge pick up but always talked of that sports car he was going to get someday.
He is survived by a brother, Antonino, and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents, Bruno and Maddalena , brothers, Consolato, Giuseppe, and sister Filomena Ardea.

    Like many others Dominic help my father and myself when in need for years. I tried to help him in the later years anyway I could to try and repay him for all he did for us. Dominic was a very kind and funny person and even when he was mad he loved to smile and say “now you listen to me boyz” that’s when you knew he’s heart was coming out . I will miss you my friend and will be in Pittsburgh Tuesday racing but our last memories were good ones. Rip love you boyz..

    Paula I did not know your Uncle, but I know how concerned you were when his health took a bad turn. You worked very hard to help him try to resolve his health issues. We are very sorry for you and your family’s loss.
