I worked with Dominic when I was a reporter/copy editor at the Times in the 1960s. He was a fine man highly regarded by his coworkers and respected in the community. I met Mrs. Liberatore at a social function for Times employees and remember her as a lovely person. My condolences to the Liberatore family. Cary Brick.
