A Tribute to Mr Mosman

View photos on Flickr

Dom Lopez OAM sadly passed away last night.

Born in 1939 to Italian immigrants and Mosman fruit shop owners Antonio and Terzita Lopez, Dominic Lopez’s passion for Mosman started early in this family business. Dom Lopez was educated at Mosman by the nuns at Sacred heart School and later the Marist Brothers. He married Zena, whose father ran the Montana milk bar at Mosman and brought up four children in Mosman.

The fruit shop was ‘home’ for Dom and the good will of the Mosman people encouraged him to give back a little to Mosman and so he ran for Council and was elected in December 1968.

Apart from a short break in the early 1970s, he continued to serve the Mosman people, including five terms as Mayor, with a passion and a pride for Mosman, his ‘Pearl of the Pacific’, that knew no bounds. R.I.P.
