Dominick S. Cassisi

July 21, 1924November 30, 2012

Dominick Cassisi was born July 21, 1924 in Manhattan, NY, son of Leonarda Cardillo and Salvatore Cassisi. Dominick was a loving husband to his wife, Camille Floriano Cassisi. He was a strong and loving man who will never be forgotten. He proudly served his country in the U.S. Navy during World War II on board the LST 494. Dominick courageously fought for our country from October 30, 1943 until April 3, 1946. He received European Theater, Victory, American Theater and Asiatic Pacific Theater Medals. He was a member of the V.F.W post and Knights of Columbus in Washingtonville NY. He was a member of the Elks in Middletown for 66 years and served as a member of the American Legion for 63 years. Dominick owned and operated Mickey’s Landing on Beaver Dam Lake. Later, he was the owner of the Chester Inn where he enjoyed serving and socializing with his customers who he also called his friends. For over 20 years he managed the men’s department at Kassel Brothers. He was known for being friendly, dapper and always willing to help his customers improve their style and image. Dominick was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and a wonderful man. He enjoyed life by, dancing with his wife and gathering with his family and friends. He looked forward to spending time with his family for the annual father’s day golf outings and Wednesday’s poker night. Dominick was constantly surrounded by his loving wife, Camille Floriano Cassisi of 56 years and his six children: Salvatore, Antonio, Dominick, Michael, Gina, and Vincent; as well as their spouses, Andrea, Janine, Jo Ann, Jon, and Eileen. He was a loving grandfather to his 12 grandchildren: Wade, Hunter, Dylan, Kyra, Chase, Gianna, Brittany, Taylor, Marisa, Vincent, Isabella, Nicole Tarr, Chi; his loving cousin, Angie and her husband, Nunzio Russo and family; niece, Lenore DiDonato, along with many other nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his father, Salvatore Cassisi and two sisters, Rose F. Cassisi and Anna DiDonato. Throughout his 88 years of living, he was known as supportive but not demanding, and was secure without being boastful. Dominick was a strong and loving man, who lived life to the fullest and always took advantage of opportunities that crossed his path. Missing someone gets easier every day. Even though it is one day farther from the last time you saw each other, it is one day closer to the next time you will see them again. Until we meet again, your loving wife.

Mr C will alway be in our hearts... He was the father every kid would want as a DAD... He taught so many of us young men how to tie a tie, match our ties with our suits...and finish with a smile with showing us how to look and act like a gentleman... He was a Class act... Our thoughts and prayers are with his entire family during this sad time... We know with out a doubt we will all be with him again one day... May he rest in peace until then...with deepest sympathy, Bob and Doreen Camillone

Dear Aunt Camille and the whole Cassisi gang,
You are all in our thoughts and prayers. We wish we could be with you. We have so many wonderful memories. It is such a blessing that our families have made family a priority across the years. All our vacation and holiday memories have family in them. There are many wonderful things we could say about Uncle Mickey but the most important are: Aunt Camile, Sal, Antonio, Mickey, Michael, Gina, and Vinny.
We love you!
Hugs and Kisses from Tennessee,
Shannon and Anne

Mickey... Camille... every single member of the family... your dad... husband... father... father-in-law... grandfather was a wonderful man. He was a good man... a kind man... a man Mary and I loved and respected. The news of his passing deeply saddens us, but knowing that he's now free of pain and all earthly worries comforts us and surely comforts all of you. Those we love never truly depart from us as long as we keep memories of them dear and close to heart. I truly believe this. Dominick will forever be in our hearts... an honored member of our extended family; a man we've considered from first meeting a family member of choice... even while not of blood. Dominick will be sorely missed... but never forgotten.
