Dominic Michael Pedulla, "Dom", age 81, passed away, peacefully, at home on June 22, 2020, surrounded by his wife and loving family.
He was born on June 1, 1939 in Akron, Ohio, the son of the late Leonard and Rose (nee Cardillo) Pedulla and was a 1957 graduate of Hower Vocational High School.
He worked for the United Parcel Service and retired after 29 years in 1998. Dominic spent his life as a jazz musician and played the bass every chance he had. Dominic was always very loving, selfless and a very dedicated and devoted family man.
