It is with great sadness that we have lost another family member, Domenico Aloisio. Dom was a member of our Chapter and was a regular face at our Chapter meetings and events. I got to know him well earlier this year when he took the Chapter’s fly tying class. Although he was taking the class himself, he always took the time to help me or my kids with something that we did not understand or could not fully understand. He gave us a great deal of tips and techniques that worked for him and talking to him was always fun and story filled. Dom led a remarkable life with lots of experiences. We always looked forward to going to class to talk to him and hear his stories. Yes, many of his stories revolved around fishing but many were about his steam trains. His enthusiasm for these things showed and made us excited about them too.
Dom will be missed by all and everyone at the Susquehanna Chapter of Trout Unlimited expresses our deepest sympathy to Dom’s entire family and to all his friends. All of you are in our thoughts and prayers. by Bob Baker
