Dominick Frank Malgeri, 74, of Vero Beach, Florida, passed away on June 09, 2022. Dominick was born on August 21, 1947, in Newark, New Jersey to the late George R. Malgeri & Lucille (nee-Veni) Malgeri. He is survived by his wife Priscilla (nee-Arndt) of 53 years along with their three children: Tracey Barker, Dominique Malgeri, & Dominick Malgeri Jr. His six grandchildren; Tony Malgeri, Priscilla Cavill, William Scott IV, Ireland Barker, Matthew Barker, London Scott, and great-grandson, Anthony Malgeri, all of Vero Beach, Fl. His siblings, Catherine LaFerrara, George Malgeri, Rosejean Malgeri, Joseph Malgeri, and many nieces, and nephews.

Dominick was a devout friend, father, and husband. His fun-loving, cheerful, and selfless personality touched many people and filled their lives with happiness. He will always be remembered and cherished for the impact he had on others.

Dominick was an avid collector, auto enthusiast, and entrepreneur. He fueled his passion through over twenty years of hard work as a successful Pawnbroker before retiring in 1992. His store Rabbit’s in Woodbridge, N.J was a staple of the community. After retiring, he permanently moved to Vero Beach, Florida along with Priscilla and their three children. In his retirement years, he was able to further his hobby of collecting and marketing all different varieties of motor vehicles. This passion led him to obtain his vehicle wholesale dealer’s license, he then created his business, Priscilla & Kids Inc. If Dominick wasn’t all over the state of Florida at auto auctions, you’d find him on his dock fishing or taking in the sun.

A celebration of life will be announced in the coming days.

Arrangements are by Thomas S. Lowther Funeral Home & Crematory, Vero Beach.

It’s been several decades since I last saw Donny. I do know that he was a good man with a big heart. I will miss you cousin. Rest in eternal peace.

Dear Don, I’m so sorry I could not keep the promise we made as children. We agreed (pinky twists) that the survivor would put a coin in the other’s mouth to pay the ferryman’s fare. My fondest memory of you, will ever be, “The Teapot Dance,” that you so proudly showed Mommy & me. You certainly fought a long, hard, & valiant battle. May you rest in peace, Bro#1, & I hope you got your “Zitzi wish!” Love, Catherine (Cat)

Dear Don, you will be greatly missed by all of us. You were a unique person, your own man, loved and admired by us all. I was looking forward to seeing you again in a few weeks in Florida. It is difficult to accept you are gone, but you will always be with us in memories. Love your brother, George and family.
