Dominick Mele, 87, of Lake Hopatcong passed away peacefully on Christmas night 2020.
Dominick was born in Jersey City and moved to Lk. Hopatcong in 1972. He was a retired structural steel worker. Dominick was a long time active parishioner and usher at 12:00 Mass at Our Lady Star of the Sea Roman Catholic Church in Lk. Hopatcong. He was also an active member of the Lakeland Seniors.
In addition to his parents he was predeceased by his 2 brothers, a sister, a brother-in-law and their spouses, a still-born son and a great-grandson.
Dominick is survived by his loving wife of 65 years, Christina (Amabile), 5 daughters and their husbands who were like sons to him, Regina & Joe Schmidt of Lk.

Family was the most important thing to him. In his young days he was an avid roller skater which is where he met his wife. He will be remembered for his infectious smile, his love of singing and dancing, going to the casino, crossword puzzles, his cowboy movies and his collection of miniature cars.
Due to current pandemic restrictions the viewing and funeral Mass is private to immediate family. At a later date a memorial Mass will be conducted.
