Dominick Cantore – November 21, 2021

Dominick Cantore, 65, passed over the transitory bridge on the morning of November 21, 2021 after a brief, but hard fought illness, at his home in Tinton Falls, NJ..

Born on New Year’s Day in 1956 in Barletta, Italy, Dom moved with his family to Alsace-Lorraine, France where he and his family lived for 18 years until immigrating to Hoboken, NJ on June 11, 1973. He attended Hoboken HS where he graduated a year early and received a full scholarship to Stevens Institute of Technology, earning a letter all 4 years in soccer and graduating near the top of his class.

Receiving his Engineering Degree, he went on to become a world renowned Metallurgical Expert, traveling the world as an ISO 9000/14000 quality control engineer. He spoke 7 languages, fluent in 5 and was known for his quick wit and extremely diverse intelligence.  His expertise was instrumental in the widening of the Panama Canal, for which he received many awards and commendations. He traveled the world, and lent his multi-level knowledge to many large companies.

Known as the consummate family man, Dominick derived his greatest pleasure in making everyone around him happy. He owned several time-shares and invited as many as could come to spend time relaxing on the beach, frolicking in the pool and cooking lavish meals, or simply eating together in a nice restaurant – memories forged that will live on with his legacy. He will be missed terribly. 

He was predeceased in 2003 by the love of his life, Ana Mercedes Cantore, whom he worshiped immeasurably, and who bore him 3 fantastic children; Michael 41 and his partner Lisa; Christopher, 36 and his wife Mackenzie, and Amanda, 29 from Tinton Falls and 5 adoring grandchildren; Jackson, Stella, Parker, Adriana, and Landon, all residing in Michigan.  His legacy will live on, proud and strong. 

Dominick was also predeceased by his parents, Michele and Rosalia Cantore. He is survived by his wife Elizabeth and her children, Andres, Andrea and Alejandra from Chihuahua, Mexico;  5 sisters, Maria Rochman (Bob), Little Ferry, NJ;  Antoinette Post (David), Middletown, NJ;  Miranda Cantore, Sylvie Murphy (Seth), Tinton Falls, NJ;  and Sonia Kessels (Ron) Sydney, Australia and many nephews and nieces. Dominick is also remembered fondly by his best friend of nearly 50 years, Mario Orbe and his wife Martha.


Visitation for Dominick will be held on Tuesday, November 23, 2021 from 4:00-8:00pm at Lawton-Turso Funeral Home, 633 Washington Street in Hoboken, NJ (Corner of Washington and Seventh Streets, parking on Seventh Street). A Funeral Mass will be held on Wednesday, November 24, 2021 at 10:30am at St Ann Roman Catholic Church, 704 Jefferson Street in Hoboken, NJ.
