Dominic Anthony Taitano

May 25, 1994 - Nov 7, 2019


Dominic Anthony D. Taitano, 25, of Sacramento, CA, passed away peacefully on November 7, 2019, surrounded by family and friends.

Although short, Dominic lived his life to the fullest. He was an avid and spontaneous traveller, hiker, coffee enthusiast and a foodie. He loved going to the gym and spending time with friends. He was a joker, and many say he brightened the room when he walked in. He had a kind and warm heart. He loved to help people and loved his job as a registered nurse. He was deeply loved and will be missed by many.

Dominic is survived by his mother, Deborah, his father, Joseph, stepmother, Gaynor, sister Olana, and his brothers, Draven and Dylan. He is survived by his grandfathers, Roman Deleon Guerrero and Jesus Taitano, and grandmothers, Alice Taitano and Leilam Olopai. He will be missed by numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and close friends.

Special thanks to the nurses, doctors, and staff at Mercy Hospital Southwest. And a very special appreciation and thanks goes to all of Dominic’s close childhood and school friends from Natomas, and loving and supportive coworkers at Kern Medical Hospital who remained by his side during his final moments. We are eternally grateful to you all.

    Momic, I will eternally miss you. I know you’ll be resting and beside our beautiful Lord, and for that, my heart is happy. A humble and beautiful soul like you deserves to be our heavenly guardian here on Earth. Uttu kki malleghúw ghamem lló, ley.

    Hey Momic, miss you kid! Sorry you have leave us so soon. I guess the lord has better plans for you. But I have not forgotten those days I use to take you to baseball practice. It was a pleasure teaching you the game. Now you have grown to be the man of your own. You chose your path to helping others. We are proud of you! You’ve become a role model to your siblings and your cousins. So, go on kid. Continue to do what you do up there. Watch over the family. Guide them. Say hi to grandma while you’re up there. We will see each other one day. I’ll make sure to bring my glove. So, we can play catch like the old days. And don’t be shy come by the house to visit. Even just to chat. We love you. Take care kid. Uncle Jester and family.

    My dearest Nicky boy, I am so happy you visited home two years ago. It was a long time coming. I have so much fond and funny memories of and with you! Like how you must wear socks as a toddler because you couldn’t stand the feeling of grass or how you’ll gag when you walk in the restroom even though it smells clean. 🤣 What always stood out though was how you were so interested in being independent by figuring stuff yourself. We are alike on that part. You’ve lived a humble life filled by hard work, perseverance, and most of all love! I love you so much and will miss hearing your loud laugh and smiling face. Rest In Peace, Rest In Love! 😘❤️🙏🏼

  • My dear, sweet, kind and wonderful Momic. You may be gone from this Earth, but never in our hearts and memories. You were our first pride and joy, the love of our lives. We are immensely proud of you and so heartbroken to have lost you. Uncle Kev and I were talking the other day about how cute you were as a toddler and how we laughed each time you said “power ranger” in that adorable toddler voice of yours. We will miss seeing you eat up a storm at our family get togethers. Even though you were an adult and had many friends, you still make an effort to join us for the holidays and for other family events. We are so proud of the man you have become, and are saddened that you left us too soon. Rest In Peace our precious nephew. We love you! Love, Uncle Kev, Auntie Neng, and cousins Kasey, Kaya, and Kami. ❤️

  • Mary says:

    Dominic definitely a one of a kind. It was a great pleasure to be part of your life and to watch you grow up. You were a great kid and young man we are devastated but we know god has some major plans for you. We will miss you tremendously especially how funny you were. 6 ft something and you still would try to hide in the bakery to scare us all ( it never worked) but you kept trying. I’m very sorry for the loss to the family. May you rest in peace. Dominic was truly a blessing for everyone who had the opportunity to know him.

  • Diana says:

    Dear Dominic, i always heard wonderful things about you. What a wonderful man you became, what a role model brother. May God be with your dear mom and sweet friend, your brothers and rest in peace. You will always be living in our hearts!!🙏🏻 God bless

  • Mom says:

    My Dearest Momic, You were such a joy when you came into our lives. Being the first born grandchild in the family, you were so loved and cherished. All through your life growing up you were always so independent and so well put together. You made me so proud, Momic. I could not have asked for a better son. You were an inspiration to your younger brothers and you were always there for them and for me. My son, I will miss having to wake you up every morning at 6am, and never miss a day. I will miss cooking all your favorite meals and preparing them for you knowing you will be coming home for the weekend. Sunday brunch and holiday dinners will never be the same without you, and this will be very, very painful to go through. I will miss your stories about the ER and interesting people you have met along the way. But more than anything I will miss telling you how much I love you. I love you my boy. Rest In Peace in the Kingdom of God.

    Dominic, I never got the chance to meet you, but one thing I know for sure is that you made your momma very proud, I remember her sharing with me your achievements, and by reading everyone’s memory of you, you were one special kid, now you are one special Angel 👼. I know your momma is going to miss you dearly. Debbie my sincere condolences to you my sweet friend & to the rest of your family. 🙏💔❤🙏 Corey Michelle
