Share memories with the family at their "On-Line Guestbook" @ Dominic S. Moceri, 86, Hall of Fame Builder and Developer of residential communites in southeastern Michigan, passed away of natural causes amongst his loving family at his Florida residence on February 7, 2018. Mr. Moceri, who was born in Detroit in 1931, was known as the "Silent Giant" and forever changed the landscape of the region. As Detroit's post-war economy expanded , Dominic and his father , Sebastian "Buster" Moceri, realized growth would take off in the suburbs. And when the federal highway construction boom extended I-75 up through the middle of Michigan, he realized people would be able to quickly travel longer distances from home to work. Together, they acquired prime parcels of land throughout southeast Michigan, which would become homes for generations of MIchigan families. Mr. Moceri teamed up with his in-laws the Grillo, Palazzzolo, Lombardo and Chrico families.While known in recent years for luxury homes, the Moceri family has built more than 55,000 residences in a wide array of styles -- luxury homes, ranches, conominimums, apartments, manufactured homes and senior living communities.Giving back to the community is the cornerstone of Mr. Moceri's legacy. Through philanthropy, Dominic and Frances have assisted families in becoming healthier, safer, cultured and educated. The various beneficiaries of their giving include: Beaumont Health, the National MS Society, The Weizman Institute of Science, National Holocaust Museum, Innovation Hills Special Sensory Playground for the Disabled, various Catholic Charities, Community Parks, Paralyzed Veterans of America Michigan Chapter, The Veterans Tribute of Oakland Township, De Lasalle Collegiate High School, Italian American Cultural Society, Charter Benefactors of The Oakland University School of Medicine.,The Rainbow Connection (making dreams come true for Michigan children with life threatening illnesses), Oakland Church and clean water initiatives in Nigeria... to name a few. Mr. Moceri has often been quoted as saying with his bright smile, "I have never been poor by the nature of giving."
