Obituary of Keith D. Dominski
Averill Park - Keith D. Dominski, 31, formerly of Averill Park, passed away suddenly
Thursday, January 6, 2022
Keith, aka Keithy by many of his female family members, was a lifelong Green Bay
Packers fan and played baseball as a child like he was in the Major League. He had a
mean pitch, and if wasn’t for his shoulder injury, his coach said he could have become a
pro. As a child, you couldn’t get him in the house. He spent a lot of time playing in the
woods with his cousins, swimming in the lake, going with his Dad to Lebanon Valley
Speedway, and getting into mischief with his big sister. Keith was a daredevil, he had no
fear. He would hop on a four-wheeler any time he could and would drive through
mountainous terrain and swamps in the summer, and race on the ice with his cousins in
the winter. Aside from his competitive spirit, Keith had a really soft side, especially when
it came to his Aunt Darcy who was disabled. He would push her in her wheelchair
everywhere and pop wheelies until she screamed. He was definitely a “Mama’s Boy”
and was proud to say, “if you had a Mom like my Mother, you would be a Mama’s boy
Keith was an amazing soul, he was genuine, loving, and respectful to everyone he met.
He was known to always watch out for the underdog and stood up for others when they
had no voice. When he walked into a room, he was the life of the party with a sparkling
grin that was so contagious, you couldn’t help but smile back. His son now carries that
same energy, and his spirit will continue to live through the little boy that he loved so
much. A year and a half ago Keith met his girlfriend Stephanie, and after some time,
they decided to move to Plattsburgh and become a family. He finally seemed to be
happy, enjoying his family and working to better himself and his future.
Keith had difficult times with addiction and struggled for years. This does not define who
he was, but it made for a more difficult life. He worked hard to stay clean, changed
people, places, and things, but that was not enough. After being clean for a period of
time, he relapsed. I would like for everyone to remember who Keith was, and to
remember to love unconditionally as we live in a world that is far from perfect. None of
us are promised tomorrow, only the moment we have right now. I believe Keith would
have wanted this message amplified, as life is too short, and when we place conditions
on those we love, we put terms, restrictions, or rules on the giving of their love.
