Massena – The family of Dalton James Dominique, 15, is deeply saddened by his untimely passing on August 28, 2020. Arrangements are entrusted to Hammill Funeral Home in Winthrop and his family will honor his life privately.
Dalton was born in Massena on November 4, 2004 to his parents, James Dominique and Chelsea Root. He attended St. Lawrence Central School until the 9th grade and was going to be home schooling this coming year.
Always looking out for others, Dalton was his own vigilante. A kind soul who wanted the best for his family, friends, and even strangers. He had a love for D.C. Comics, anything Batman, and idolized Bruce Wayne. He was very artistic, showing talent at the young age of 4 when he began shading his sketches; Daltons passion was drawing and of course, we can’t forget the video games.
He is survived by his mother, Chelsea Root at home, father, James Dominique of Winthrop; sisters, Kristeen Root and her significant other, Joe Burnett of North Lawrence, Kynna’d Schmidt and her significant other, Jamie Patterson of Massena; brother, Dillon Dominique and his fiancé Keely Smutz of Massena; sisters Caroline Dominique and her significant other, Cody Chartier of Massena, and Camryn Dominique at home; maternal grandmother, Elizabeth Bouchard of Norfolk, and paternal grandfather, Paul Dominique of Winthrop.
Survivors also include his nieces and nephews, Verallie Rose, Payslee Veda, Bently Carter, Desmond Alexander, Nay, Nolan, Lydia, and 2 on the way, many aunts, uncles, and several cousins.
