It is with heavy heart, the City of Beverly acknowledges the passing of Domenic Astemborski. Domenic was a prominent figure in our community and always went above and beyond to serve our residents. He worked tirelessly, never seeming to take time off and was a regular at many motor vehicle accidents. Chances were, if there was an accident, Dom’s truck was the amber lights in line with the reds and blues.
As busy as he was, he always made time to pull over to say hello, beep and wave or to sit back and talk about antiques. You always knew right where you stood with Dom and if you didn’t he would be sure to tell you.
Domenic leaves us with a hole in our community and a hole in our hearts. His cheery colloquial expression of, “Hey Buddy!” or “Hey Sweetheart” may be silenced but he will always live on in our fondest memories.
Words can never express the sorrow we feel nor the life that he led, so we will leave it with…
we will miss you Dom.
p.s. If you happen to see a cloud moving oddly across the sky, look closely, there just might be an angel towing it.

If you have received ANY unsolicited robocalls with a pre-recorded message (vehicle warranties are a big one right now), write down the time, date, number and Caller ID name, then report the call to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) at the link below:
As tempting as it may be, DO NOT press any buttons other than to hang up. Many of these calls will tell you to “Press 1 to stop receiving these calls”. In reality, pressing 1 or whatever other number they tell you to press, will record your number and send it to several other companies to call you.
The Federal Trade Commission currently has lawsuits involving over 600 companies for just these types of calls.
