Dominick Furno

MEADVILLE — Dominick Furno, 85, of 14714 Park Ave. Ext., Meadville, formerly of 16222 N. Shady Acres, Meadville, passed away Friday, Sept. 13, 2013, at Meadville Rehab and Nursing.

Dominick was born in Meadville on Feb. 10, 1928, a son of the late Dominick A. and Maria Nuzzulo Furno.

In April 1947, Dominick married Opal Rubner; she survives.

After more than 35 years of service, Dominick retired from the former Abex Corporation where he worked in the machine shop. He attended Meadville schools and enjoyed fishing.

He was a member of the Meadville Club, Vernon Central Social Club, the Italian Civic Club (ICC) and the Fraternal Order of Eagles. For many years Dominick sold Christmas trees from his property on Vanhorne Road in Meadville. It became a long standing tradition that after a family purchased their Christmas tree, Dominick always invited them into his home to give each child a wrapped Christmas gift while offering the parents a drink to warm themselves. This gave each family the opportunity to enjoy his beautifully decorated Christmas tree. On several occasions Dominick dressed up as Santa bringing joy to many children.

In addition to his wife, Opal, of 66 years, Dominick is survived by three children, Becky Cousins of Erie, Sharon Manning of Alabama, and Charlene Hannold and her husband, Terry, of Meadville; six grandchildren, Patti Hart, Scott Manning, Tonya Gido, Marc Gregor, Kristoffer Gregor and his wife, Elizabeth, and Sean Cousins; 11 great-grandchildren, Alex Gregor, Tori Gido, Andrew Gregor, Chelsea Gregor, Kassidy Gido, Randy Bucklew, Tucker Gregor, Jackson Gregor, Masyn Gregor, Savana Gregor, Dylan Cousins; a great-great-grandson, Ace Benjamin Rankin; two brothers, John Furno and his wife, Marsha, of Saegertown, and Alfred Furno of Meadville; and several nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents, Dominick was preceded in death by a grandson, Geoffery Gregor; five brothers, Angelo, Tony, Frank, Albert and Matteo Furno; five sisters, Angie Furno, Ann Guthrie, Ethel Evans, Lucy Perry and an infant sister, Angelina Furno.

Family and friends are invited to call from 5 to 8 p.m today at Stephen P. Mizner Funeral Home & Cremation Services Inc., 404 Chestnut St., Meadville, where funeral services will be held Wednesday at 1:30 p.m., with Pastor Temple Jarrell, of New Beginnings Church of God, officiating.

Interment will take place in Greendale Cemetery, West Mead Township.
