Dominick DiLorenzo, a 38-year resident of Garth Road, died July 20 at White Plains Hospital. He was 98 years old.
Born and raised in the Bronx, he was the son of Rose and Tom DiLorenzo. At James Monroe High School, where he played quarterback on the football team, he met his future wife, Anne. They married in 1942 and enjoyed 74 years together.
He entered the U.S. Navy in 1942 and served for three years in the Pacific as a rear gunner and navigator on a PBM submarine chaser.
After the war, he joined the New York City Department of Correction, where he rose to the rank of deputy warden at the Rikers Island prison. Upon retirement, he moved to Scarsdale Manor on Garth Road. While there, he worked in real estate management for over 10 years for Garthchester Realty and Barhite and Holzinger Realty. He was also very involved with, and became president of, the coop board of Scarsdale Manor and the Garth Road Joint Coop Board.
In appreciation for his service to the Garth Road community, a bench was dedicated in his honor at the entrance to Scarsdale Manor last August.
An avid tennis player, he enjoyed decades of play at Lake Isle Country Club. He was also a dedicated fan of the Yankees and Giants and loved to follow the fortunes of those teams through the years.
He is survived by his sister Dorothy Scumaci; his son, Bob DiLorenzo (Loretta) of Scarsdale; and daughters, Barbara DiLorenzo (Richard Kelsey) and Patty Provenzano. He is also survived by his grandchildren, Stefan Provenzano (Patty); Nadia Provenzano; Kate DiLorenzo (Will Brennan) and Claire Paquin (JP), all residents of Scarsdale; and Sarah DiLorenzo; and five great-grandchildren in Scarsdale: Tom, Ian, Chloe, Ursula and Luna.
