Dominick was born on April 11, 1933, in Geneva, NY. He was the son of the late Dominick and Josephine Galusha. Dominick proudly served in the United Sates Marines during the Korean War, where he received two Purple Heart medals and a Silver Star. In his youth, Dominick participated in baseball and was an avid bowler. Dominick worked for various construction companies but his favorite job, by far, was working for Sunset Bowl in Geneva, NY. It was during that employment of over 35 years that Dominick made lifelong friends who he continued to visit even after his retirement. He was known as "Junior" by most and was regarded as a faithful friend. Dominick was an active member of his local Marine Corp community and volunteered countless hours of his time during the Christmas holidays collecting toys to donate to children's charities. Dominick loved to bet the horses at OTB where he also made many friends.

He was predeceased by his loving wife, Maria Rose Manzari Galusha, whom he married on February 4, 1961. He was also predeceased by his youngest son, Gerard "Jerry" Galusha on November 5, 2010. He is survived by his son, Dominick Galusha III of Colonial Heights, VA; four grandchildren, Brittany (Ryan Gravitte), Daniel (Lea Battaglia), Dominick IV, and Phillip Galusha; two great-grandchildren, Osiris and Hazel Galusha; daughter-in-law, Nancy Midey Galusha; former daughter-in-law, Karla Graham; sisters-in-law, Angela (Paul) Fera and Clara (Robert) Dreitlein and their children; several beloved nieces and nephews, especially Richard Pitifer, as well as cousins and many dear friends.

The family would like to thank the VA in Canandaigua for the incredible care Dominick received during the last two years of his life.
