David Domoracki, Ph.D.
David Domoracki Ph.D., age 66 years. It is with heavy hearts and great sadness, that our family announces the passing of David Domoracki on December 26, 2020. Cherished husband of Sandi for 40 years, beloved father of Geoffrey Domoracki and Lissa Domoracki Sweeney (Darren), loving son of Barbara (nee Palur) and Walter and stepmother “Lottie” Adomaitis, all deceased. Dearest brother of Nanette Nickoli (Gene), Walter Domoracki (Beth), Diana Domoracki-Kisto (deceased) (John). Also grieving Dave’s canine pal, Griffin.
Dave attended Orange City Schools, Ohio State University where he met his wife, and Kent State University where he earned his doctorate degree. Dave was hired at Cleveland VA Medical Center in 1987 as the Electrophysiology and Balance Specialist in Audiology Services. He continued to work at the VA for 28 years as the Director of the Balance Disorders Lab, where he designed the lab to assess and contribute to the vestibular rehabilitation of veterans. He was called upon by colleagues across the country to help them design similar labs and provide national presentations. Dave loved inspiring others and working with his graduate students. He taught graduate classes at Kent State University and University of Akron.
David had a zest for life, enjoying discoveries and adventures. Above all, he valued and prioritized spending time with his family.
He loved taking road trips, long distance biking, music and hiking. He is best remembered for his positive attitude, contagious sense of humor, and eccentric wit. In all walks of life, he is remembered for his unwavering support for all of the lives he touched.
Those who knew Dave knew of his strong will and determination especially when combating physical and medical challenges. The family would like to thank the leukemia team at Cleveland Clinic for their wonderful care to Dave and his family over the past two years.
A closed, private family service will be held at 1:30pm on Saturday, January 2, 2021. The family welcomes you to join the service through Zoom. If you wish to say a few words, there will be an opportunity to do so during the service.
