Domingo was raised in Gonzales, Texas. He was a very hard worker and a great provider for his family. He worked 31 years at Southern Clay Products along with several other jobs.

Domingo met the love of his life, Theresa Cantu and were married May 29, 1965. They then had six children: Sammie Cantu “Debra,” Margie Gonzales “David,” Melani Vega, Dominic Vega “Kristina,” Maggie Holub “Chris,” and Michelle Vega fiancé “Manuel Cardoza.”

His legacy will live on and along with many amazing memories within the people whose hearts he touched, his wife, and his children.

He believed in welcoming everyone like family, and he cherished time spent with his immediate family. He loved his daily visits to H E B, Walmart, Bealls and Tractor Supply. Providing for his family was his number one priority. Domingo could fix almost anything and always gave the best advice. He never knew a stranger.

Domingo enjoyed watching Gun Smoke, the Spurs, the Cowboys, boxing with his son Dominic, collecting treasures with his grandkids, picking his grandkids up from school and watching his daily Novelas with his wife.

He was born into the Catholic Church and was an active member with the Santo Nombre Society for many years. He loved helping anyone and everyone especially his children and grandchildren.

The family would like to give a special thank you to everyone who has offered their thoughts and prayers. Your kind expression during this time of great sorrow is deeply appreciated. Love all whom you hold dear to your heart. Time is precious. So laugh loud, live hard, and make memories.
