Dominic J. Galletta 1955-2019
POLAND — Dominic J. Galletta, 63, departed this earthly life to join his beloved father, Rocky, in God’s paradise, Monday, Oct. 7, 2019, surrounded by a circle of love,
Dominic was born to Rocky and Dora Mastronarde Galletta Dec. 19, 1955. He was a lifelong resident of the Mahoning Valley and a member of Christ Our Savior Church in Struthers.
After graduating from Campbell Memorial High School in 1973, Dominic pursued employment in the business field, which led to a highly successful career in sales. He worked for a varied number of businesses before joining the G.W. Becker Inc. company team.
On February 15, 1986, Dominic married his true partner in life, Theresa Wanamaker Galletta. Dominic and Theresa raised two extraordinary children, Dominique and Michael, who considered their father their champion, their advocate and their true hero.
The consummate family man, Dom displayed a steadfast devotion to his immediate and extended families that is unparalleled. Dom’s house was always the gathering place where everyone was welcome and no one was exempt from his good-natured teasing. Every member of his family thought they were his “favorite” and every friend considered him their “best friend.” Although he has left this world far too soon, Dominic’s legacy will live on forever in the hearts and minds of all of those privileged enough to have known and loved him.
Dominic will be forever missed by his cherished wife, Theresa; his daughter, Dominique; his son, Michael; his devoted mother, Dora Galletta; his sisters, Josephine Galletta, Marietta (David) Tomchik and Annie (Bill) Schrieber; a very special aunt, Mary Mastronarde; his sisters-in-law, Donna (Gary) Wholf, Dottie Dawson and Kathi (Jack) Young; his brothers-in-law, Kenny ( Lara) Wanamaker, Tommy (Ellen) Wanamaker and Don Watson; and many treasured nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Dominic was preceded in death by his father, Rocky; his mother-in-law and father-in-law, Lu and Ken Wanamaker; and sister-in-law, Karen Watson.
The family will receive friends 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 11, 2019, at Cunningham-Becker Funeral Home, 270 N. Main St., Poland, Ohio 44514. Funeral services will commence 10 a.m. Saturday at the funeral home.
“Our love goes with you, Dominic; our souls wait to greet you.”
