Dominic Anthony Milazzo, 70, of Walton, New York passed peacefully on Thursday, May 9, 2019 surrounded by his loved ones after a brief illness.
Dominic was a devout Catholic who grew up in Dolgeville, New York and was a proud graduate of the University of Buffalo. He met the love of his life, Marie Baggetta, at a wedding reception and married her on June 10th 1972. He was a loving son, husband, uncle, father of two children, and grandfather to two grandchildren. He enjoyed nothing more than a round of golf with friends or family followed by cocktail hour and many laughs around the dinner table. He traveled the country and the world with his wife of nearly 47 years and enjoyed 19 years of well-deserved retirement. He had a lifelong love of trains which he shared with his friends, children and grandchildren over the years as he meticulously tinkered with a handmade model railroad track and insisted that operators wear a conductor’s cap and red handkerchief. Nothing made him prouder than the successes of his son and daughter and he adored his grandson and granddaughter.
Dominic is survived by his beloved wife, Marie Milazzo, of Walton; son Peter Milazzo, of Hamilton; daughter Stephanie Milazzo-Clinger (Matthew) of Stafford VA; grandchildren, Brian and Madeleine Clinger, of Stafford VA, sister-in-law, Beverly Milazzo, of Queensbury and his niece, Bethany Milazzo, of Albany. He was predeceased by his brother, Joseph Milazzo.
