Dominic Joseph Albanese, age 62, of Syracuse, New York, was released from a life of illness and infirmity on October 13, 2017 at St. Joseph's Hospital Health Center. Dominic graduated from Cicero High School in 1973. He was on the football team and won many Scholastic Art awards. He studied fine art at the Art Institute of Chicago on full scholarship. His prodigious talent in drawing and painting burned brilliantly for too brief a time. He lived and worked in Chicago for several years before joining the Marine Corps. He enjoyed model cars and watching football, and often surprised people with his wit and humor. He was fiercely independent, asking for little and living simply. In the end, he was well cared for by the doctors, nurses, and other staff at SJHHC. The family was especially grateful for the comfort of their old family friend, Fr. Severine Yagaza.

Dominic was predeceased by his father, Nino Albanese. He is survived by his mother, Phylis Albanese, now living in Charlotte, NC, brother Frank (Dory) Albanese of Clay, NY, and sisters Terry Albanese (with Harry in Charlotte, NC), Karen Albanese-Campbell (with Drew in Columbus, OH), and Nina Albanese-Kotar (with John in Eau Claire, WI), as well as five nephews (Jake, Ben, Peter, Nick, and Joe) and two nieces (Sara and Katie). Special thanks to family members Maria Bishop, Anthony Bishop and Dan Gefell for their visits and support. A private memorial service will be held at a future date. Dominic will be remembered with love. In lieu of flowers, please consider a gift to SJHHC's palliative care or spiritual care units at 301 Prospect Ave., Syracuse, NY. Leave a condolence for the family by clicking the condolence tab above.
