Brandon Casella’s update on Dominick’s funeral
I am writing this with a heavy, sad heart. My father Dominick Casella, lost his battle with Cancer Monday July 15, 2013 while being cared for in Orlando. Dad was a great mentor and friend for not only me but many of the people from the Central Florida Area, in the Wine and Sprits trade, and as an amazing Father of 5 and Grandfather of 5 and soon to be 6 (His youngest was due on the same day he passed). Dominick dedicated his life to helping those in need and spoke highly of every person he met. He accepted people’s flaws and celebrated their attributes. His Heart of gold will be missed almost as much as the warm smile he displayed after a classic Italian sarcastic comment. I am proud to call him my Dad. I hope that a piece of him lives on with each of you as you carry out for lives.
In the tradition of his generosity, our father donated his body to science so that others could perhaps be cured of the deadly cancer which he fought long and hard, but ultimately lost.
We will be holding a Memorial for him at on AUG 3, 2013 @ 11 am at the following Location:
All Souls Catholic Chapel (Not Church on 46, smaller chapel on 8th ST)
