Raymond L. Dominici, 93,

   Raymond L. Dominici, 93, died early Thursday in his home at 60 Highland Street of natural causes and surrounded by his family. The lifelong Milford resident is survived by his loving wife of 65 years, Lydia F. (Coelho) Dominici, and three daughters; Debora Letourneau and her husband Gary of Milford, Amy Dominici of Milford and Denise Mello and her husband Russell of Mattapoisett. He had six grandchildren; Christopher Letourneau and his wife Jennifer of Milford, Adam Letourneau and his wife Jessica of Attleboro, Lee Anne and Haley Smith, and Taylor and Olivia Mello. He also had three great-grandchildren; Matthew and Samuel Letourneau and Collin Brennan, as well as many cousins, nieces and nephews.
   Born March 7, 1919, Mr. Dominici was one of six children of Luigi and Lucia (Bacchiochi) Dominici. He graduated from Milford High School in 1937, became a machinist and later worked at the former Data General Corporation until his retirement in 1984. He was a talented musician, a saxophonist and band leader who played on weekends throughout the Metro West area for more than 50 years. A proud Marchegiano and member of the Nipmuc Rod and Gun Club, Mr. Dominici also enjoyed archery and hunting for pheasants, rabbits and deer. He loved to cook, and he was a member of the Italian Vets, where he was a longtime bocce captain.
   Mr. Dominici was well-known and respected throughout the Milford community, a staunch Democrat and talented carpenter.  One of his greatest passions was baseball and the Boston Red Sox, who he supported through good times and bad his entire life. Some of his favorite players were Dom DiMaggio, Ted Williams, Carl Yastrzemski, Nomar Garciaparra and Dustin Pedroia, and he finally was rewarded for his loyalty with World Series championships in 2004 and 2007.
   His funeral will be held Monday, March 4, at 9 a.m. from the Consigli-Ruggerio Funeral Home at 46 Water St. in Milford. The mass of Christian burial will be held at 10 a.m. at the Sacred Heart of Jesus Church in Milford, where Mr. Dominici and his wife were longtime parishioners.
   Burial will follow in the St. Mary’s cemetery on Cedar St. in Milford.
   Calling hours are Sunday from 4-8 p.m.
