Dr. Dominick Anthony Rubino, of Nutley, NJ, passed away on Sunday, August 23, 2020 at the Clara Maass Medical Center, Belleville, with his family by his side. Visitation will be at the Biondi Funeral Home of Nutley, 540 Franklin Ave, on Thursday August 27 from 4:00 p.m to 8:00 p.m. There will be a funeral mass celebrated at Holy Family Church, 28 Brookline Ave, Nutley on Friday August 28 at 9:30 a.m. The entombment will be at Holy Cross Chapel Mausoleum, North Arlington.
Dominick was born and raised in Newark, NJ. He graduated from West Side High School and earned a B.S. in Chemistry from Seton Hall University. After college, he was drafted into the army and was stationed for two years at a medical field laboratory in Germany. Upon discharge, Dominick was admitted to the first class of the first medical school to be founded in the state of New Jersey, Seton Hall College of Medicine and Dentistry. He graduated in 1960 and interned at Martland Medical Center in Newark before opening a medical office in Nutley. While maintaining his private practice, he also worked for a time as a company physician at Hoffmann-La Roche and served as Medical Director at ITT.
During his 59 years of practice in Nutley, Dominick was known for his quiet philanthropy and true concern for his patients. He was the epitome of a small-town family doctor who cared for entire families and even made house calls. Being a physician was not merely a job, but a life-long passion. In his limited free time, Dominick enjoyed gardening, completing home repair projects, watching baseball, and vacationing in Vermont.
Above all, Dominick cherished his family. He was a loving, devoted, and selfless husband, father, and grandfather. Dominick will be deeply missed by his family who aspire to be as generous, non-judgmental, unassuming, and kind as he was throughout his entire life. He did not do things to be seen or praised by others, but he lived his life as a true servant of God. Much of the grace that Dominick shed on the world, he did in secret. He truly was an instrument of God who blessed all that he touched.
Dominick is survived by Joan, his beloved wife of 62 years; and his loving children: Denise Gizzo and her husband, John, John Rubino and his wife, Cindy, Joyce Guziejewski and her husband, James, David Rubino and his wife, Vicky, Janice Rubino-Albrecht and her husband, Gregg, and Judy Rubino and her husband, Tony Loftman; and his cherished grandchildren: Matthew, Anthony, Dominick, Joshua, Daniel, Taso, Christopher, Peter, Stephanie, Gregory, Greta, and Max; his brother, Frank, and his wife, Eileen, as well as his many loving nieces, nephews, in-laws, cousins, and friends. Dominick was preceded in death by his parents, Frank and Rose Rubino, and his brother, Nicholas.
