Dominick Oliver, a long time resident of Redondo Beach, born April 24, 1924 in West Virginia, passed away to heaven to join his parents and his siblings John, Patsy, Rose and Katherine. Dominick was a WW II veteran of the U.S. Army, decorated for actions in the Pacific Theater of Operations. "Dom" was beloved by many friends and neighbors who enjoyed his joyful and happy attitude. He was always a true gentleman and showed concern and love for others. The entire Oliver family was respected and held in high esteem by everyone who knew them. Dominick was always cheerful with a quick wit, and ready with a witty story of his many experiences. Dom will also be missed by his many friends from "Spires" restaurant in Torrance, which he visited each day, as much for the companionship of the "regulars" as for their food which he enjoyed so much. A Rosary will be Tuesday, May 28 to begin at 7 PM at White and Day Colonial, 901 Torrance Blvd., Redondo Beach. The funeral Mass will be Wednesday May 29 at 9:30 AM, at St. Lawrence Catholic Church, 1900 S. Prospect, Redondo Beach. In lieu of flowers please make contributions to the American Heart Association. You will be greatly missed Dominick.

  1. So sorry about Dominick’s passing. My prayers go out to all his loved ones and caregiver that took such wonderful care of him. Love to all. God Bless.q

  2. I will always remember Dominick’s visits to my parents home in Michigan as he, Pat, Katherine and Rose made their cross country RV trips. My brothers and I always enjoyed Dominick’s wonderful sense of humor and good nature. While we haven’t been able to see him recently he will always have a place in our hearts.

  3. I am posting this for my parents who would very much like to be there to bid Dominick his final farewell, but travel isn’t possible for them at this time. Dominick and his family have been great friends and cousins to them (as well as my aunt Vicki DeMarco) over the many years spanning back to their early years in West Virginia.

  4. I am writing this farewell to my dear cousin Dominick on behalf of my
    family (husband, Steve and sons, Miles & Cole) as well as my dearly
    departed parents, Pat & Teresa Marra. My Father, Pat Marra, was the
    Olivers first cousin. Dominick always reminisced about the period of
    time that my Dad stayed with them in southern California. The stories
    that Dominick would tell about him have been some of my all time
    favorites about my Dad. There are also the wonderful memories and
    stories from the visits from our Oliver cousins to include; West
    Virginia, Montreal, Northern California & Toronto. I will miss
    having my Italian exchanges with Dominick whenever I had the great
    opportunity to have a Spires visit with Dom. He always managed to put a
    smile on my face, warm my heart and give me a deep Italian
    abbraccio/hug. Dominick, you will be missed, riposa in pace/rest in
    peace, Ti Amo, Clarisa Marra Edwards
