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 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.
