It is with great pain and sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved son, grandson, nephew, Dominic Ryan Patrick O’Meara.
Growing up, Dominic was an active, curious and imaginative boy. His grandmother often lovingly said that her goal everyday was to “tire him out”-due to his endless energy and thirst for life. He was always ready to get out and do something and forever wanted to be on the go. Dominic’s Grandpa spent a lot of time with him, taking him to and from the various activities he was involved in.
He enjoyed all sorts of outdoor activities including swimming, snowboarding, biking, running, playing and going on adventures.
Dominic excelled in sports- especially soccer, and track and field; specifically, the 300m run and javelin. He won multiple medals and trophies for these events and succeeded in going to the track and field nationals in Montreal in 2015.
Dominic was also a creative, artistic, and charismatic young man who was always coming up with hilarious and descriptive scenarios and commentaries on the fly, some of which he would even write or draw about.
Being a sensitive and empathetic young man, Dominic had a way of connecting with others and making them laugh and feel good. He was especially good at entertaining senior citizens and children. He loved watching movies, and spending time with family and friends.
He was also known to tease his grandparents, aunts and mother just to get a rise out them in good fun. There were even some ongoing good-natured “feuds” that had been going on so long they had become ‘tradition’. One example of this is the “joke”gifts at Christmas, just to see the persons reaction, among other things.
Dominic will be greatly missed; Pre-Deceased by his grandmother, Susan O’Meara (2018), survived by his grandfather-Patrick O’Meara, Aunt-Alison O’Meara, Mother-Kathleen O’Meara, great- grandmother Joyce Carnegie- Close Family Friend -John Courchene-Father- Robbie white, Aunt -Alexis white,cousin Abigail Asham; and many other great aunts, great uncles, cousins, second cousins and many close friends.
