SBU Hall of Famer Dom Denio '42 Passes

ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. – St. Bonaventure University Athletics Hall of Fame member Dom Denio ‘42 passed away Wednesday after 92 years of a life well-lived.

Captain of the St. Bonaventure football team in 1942, he was named All Little Three twice over his gridiron career. In addition, Dezio played basketball for four years, was named named the Ideal Bonaventure Man twice (1941, 42) and selected to American College’s “Who’s Who” in 1942.

Mark McGuire of the Albany Times Union writes “There has never, ever been another sports figure in these or any parts like Dom Denio. And there never will be” in his piece entitled Dom Denio, 92: A Hall of Fame Life.
