Bruce Allen Domingue
Bruce Allen Domingue, age 62, born on February 23rd, 1954, passed away unexpectedly on January 26th, 2017, at his home with his wife, Kimberly Domingue of 36 years and his loving fur companions, Bandit, Pokey and Mischief with him.
Bruce was the son of Leonard “Buggy” Domingue and Iona (Tinker) Domingue; husband of Kimberly (Forcier) Domingue and father of Joscelyne (Domingue) Knight and partner, Vernon Bigelow, Jared Domingue and partner, Bethany Strong, Jeffrey Domingue and partner, Bethany Ladd, and Jacob Domingue, as well as grandfather to, Evelyne Knight, Hunter Bigelow-Knight, Paige Bigelow-Knight, Nathan Bigelow, Makenna Bigelow, Corynn Domingue, Brynlie Domingue, Brooke Domingue, Jace Domingue and Ashley Beauregard.
Bruce was also brother to, Frances Longley, Leonard Domingue, Mike Domingue, Doug Domingue and Greg Domingue and their families, and brother-in-law to Kate Dimaio. He is also survived by many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.
Bruce was predeceased by his parents, Buggy and Iona; his in-laws, Bill and Agnes Forcier; his sister, Jean (Domingue) Ashline and sister-in-law, Judy Domingue.
Bruce was a graduate of B.F.A. Fairfax Class of 1974. Bruce’s number one joy in life was having his family around. Farming was Bruce’s life and passion until his body had said it had had enough and he became disabled in 2010, but he was well known and liked throughout the farming community.
He enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren, socializing, hunting, Jeep rides with his dog, Bandit, birdwatching, spending time around his fire pit and puttering around in his garage with his toys. Bruce had a green thumb and loved having a big garden in the summers.
Bruce will be sorely missed by his family and all who knew him.
The family would like to invite everyone to a Celebration of His Life, at the Binghamville Church, 35 School Road, Cambridge, Vermont on Saturday, February 4th, 2017, at 10:30 AM with a pot luck lunch at 12 Noon. Please bring a dish and story or memory to share.
