Dominic Tristin Thomas Nowak, age 24, passed away in the early morning of Saturday, June 29, 2019 in a tragic accident that has forever changed all of our lives. Dominic was born July 13, 1994, in Lamar Missouri, to Sara Beth Allen and Thomas Matthew Nowak.
Dominic completed all of his grade school in Nevada, MO. He spent his elementary in Saint Mary’s Catholic school and then moved to public school where he graduated high school from Nevada in 2013. After graduation Dominic moved himself with his mother to Ohio to pursue a career in pipelining. Throughout his years at work he worked in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Louisiana, and Texas. Dominic was very proud of his work and took pride in being able to withstand the intense labors of working such a physically demanding career. As a young man coming into this field he went to work everyday resilient and proud, earning the upmost respect from his coworkers. He had recently passed his CIP (Certified Coding Inspector) exam, resulting in a promotion of becoming an inspector of the job site. Dominic worked extremely hard, sometimes working seven days a week, 12+ hours a day, saving for his future. Dominic had plans of buying a large house in the country in hope that one day he could raise his family together with his brothers and sisters with him.
When Dominic wasn’t working more than anything he enjoyed nature and being outside. Whether it was hiking, canoeing, or simply enjoying the sunshine that’s where he was happy. In his time away from work he would visit different places and to wanted travel and eventually see the world. Dominic took very good care of himself, trying to eat healthy and had a hobby of going to the gym and lifting weights.
More than anything Dominic loved his friends and family and spending time with them. That time was the most precious thing to him. With his caring and kind heart making sure everyone was alright was what Dominic always did. Being around his loved ones, helping with anything that he could. He always wanted his family to be close and reaching out to as many people as he could, he always wanted to stay in close contact and made sure everyone knew he loved them, and in return we will always love him as well.
Dominic will sadly be missed by everyone that knew him. He was someone that was so full of life and brought so much joy into this world he would want everyone to remember his life and celebrate his memory.
