Funeral services will be held at Delhomme Funeral Home on Wednesday, May 2, 2007 for Ronald "Theo" Domingue who passed away peacefully at his home on April 30, 2007 after a long battle with cancer. He was surrounded by his loving family and friends at the time of his death.

The Reverend O. Joseph Breaux, Pastor of St. Alphonsus Catholic Church, will conduct the funeral services. Internment will take place at Lafayette Memorial Park immediately following the service.

Ron was born on April 8, 1949 to Wilton Domingue and Maudry Roger Bourgeois in Scott, Louisiana. Ron was a graduate of Cathedral High School and the University of Southwestern Louisiana (now the University of Louisiana at Lafayette) where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering. He was a Licensed Professional Engineer and was a member of many engineering societies and associations.

He was a member of the USL track team from 1968-1971 and served as a First Lieutenant in the United States Air Force. His passion for flying continued and he went on to become a single and multi-engine private pilot. He owned many planes throughout his lifetime and often flew for business as well as pleasure. His hobbies included wood working, travel and watering his "babies."
He was a member of the Lafayette Rotary Club as well as the Lafayette Jaycees where he served as President in 1983-1984, and Chairman of the Acadiana Fair and Trade Show in 1981. He was a member of the Krewe of Gabriel, serving as a Royal Duke in 2002. He was also a former member of the Krewe of Bonaparte.

Ron is survived by his beloved wife, Kimberly Prejean Domingue; three children, Kevin Christopher Domingue, Kimberly Domingue Cormier and her husband, Ashley, and Clint Michael Domingue; two step-daughters, Allyson Melancon Prejean and her husband, Dwayne; and Andrea Melancon Pelletier and her husband, Charles; and ten grandchildren, Zachary Edwards, Carly Pelletier, Madeline Edwards, Abigail Cormier, Annabelle Edwards, Magdalene Cormier, Lilly Edwards, Holden Pelletier, Gabriella Cormier, and Avery Cormier, with whom he shared a birthday.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Wilton Domingue and Maudry Roger Bourgeois.
Ron was a wonderful and devoted husband, father, step-father, grandfather and caring friend to all who knew and loved him. He was affectionately known as Pappy to his grandchildren. Ron was always concerned with helping others before himself. He adored and loved his "Mim" so very much and their love was ever visible for all to see. He taught his family and friends, through his actions, about what it means to be positive, optimistic, courageous and above all, loving. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.

The family requests that visiting hours be observed from 2:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Tuesday, May 1, 2007 with a Rosary at 7:00 p.m. by Arlene Hebert, and visitation will continue on Wednesday from 8:00 a.m. until the time of the funeral service at 1:00 p.m.
Gift bearers will be his ten grandchildren. Readers will be Kimberly Cormier and Eva Torian. The Eulogy will be given by Allyson Prejean.
