Domingo Vega, 68 of Damon, TX. passed away on Thursday, April 28, 2021. He was born March 8, 1953 in Gonzales, TX. to Ramon and Victoria Vega. Mingo, as everyone knew him by, lived in Damon his whole life. He worked in the oil fields behind the Damon Mound and later drove for Daily Truck Lines out of Damon in his younger years. Later he went to work for M&M Well Service out of West Columbia hauling oil field equipment. This led to him going to work for the City of West Columbia, where he operated the backhoe and later would become supervisor. After a short 25+ years of service, Mingo took an early retirement from the City of West Columbia. Mingo enjoyed growing his garden and sharing the vegetables that came out of it. He especially loved riding his motorcycle and making new friends along his rides.
