Dominic Francis Narcisco

Dominic Francis Narcisco, 39, of Somers, NY, formerly of Tappan, NY, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, April 15, 2019.  Dominic was the cherished son of Frank and Sandra Narcisco of Tappan, NY and the beloved brother of Anthony & Jennie and Francine & Stefan. He was a proud uncle of Jonathan, Annalise and Nikolai and an adored nephew, cousin, friend, teacher, teammate and coach.  His son, Frankie Giovanni, was the light of his life, for whom he was the utmost loving father.

    I had gotten to know Coach Dom in 2003 when he coached my son in freshman football at Somers HS (they were undefeated that year). I found him as a person of great character. Since then, we would bump into each other either on the field, above the press booth taping games he was spotting, or out about in town. There was always a good word from Coach Dom, a good sense of humor and great spirit. He will be sorely missed, but the many people he has touched will be better for knowing him.

    So sorry for your loss. Dom and I were very close in school, and became even closer as we got older. My condolences to his son and the rest of his family. I will always cherish the time we spent together in class and hanging out in school. I am not surprised that he went on to make a name for himself and be successful. He had the insight and knowledge to impact people’s lives. He will be missed.
