Regis Jude Thomas Domitrovich, 77, died Saturday, February 4, 2017, in the company of his family and loved ones. Born September 17, 1939 in Aliquippa, the son of the late John and Anna Pauvlinch Domitrovich. Regis was a lifetime resident of Aliquippa. He married Frances Ann Gorup of Ambridge, PA. Regis spotted Frances for the first time at the Serbian picnic in Aliquippa. Frances was with some girls and Regis told his friend that one is mine and I am going to marry her. The two of them were always together, in good times and in bad they never left each other’s side.
Regis and Frances were both members of Saint Titus Church and volunteered at the Sisters of St. Joseph Harvest Festival flea market for 22 years. Regis helped his brother Walter on many Saint Titus projects. His brothers and sisters were very important to him. Out of high school Regis worked for his brother Ray (Aliquippa Packing) delivering meat. Later he hired on with Jones& Laughlin Steel Corporation in Aliquippa spending most of those years in the Ore Yard as brakeman, engineer, and conductor – he loved those trains. A man who lived with pain, he made many sacrifices for God, his family and friends. He lived with his brother Joe in West Aliquippa for many years – they had many adventures together. Because of surgery, Regis was blessed to live for the past year and a half at the Villa Saint Joseph Baden among amazing people and members of the Sisters of Saint Joseph.
