Dominic Joseph Musso

May 3, 1955 — April 4, 2024


Dominic Joseph Musso passed away peacefully on April 4, 2024, in Chipley, Florida. Born on May 3, 1955, in Bridgeton, New Jersey, Dominic's early years were marked by a move with his family to North Carolina, laying the foundation for the kind-hearted and engaging man he would become. He later settled in Dothan, Alabama, around 1985, a place he would call home for the rest of his life.

Dominic was preceded in death by his loving parents, Sebastian Musso and Dora Brago; his brother, Thomas Musso; and his cousin, Stanley Tew. He is survived by his cherished aunt, Rose Russo; cousins, Tim Tew and Tina Rios; and a host of other loving friends and family members who were blessed to know him. Dominic's presence will also be deeply missed by his church family at St. Columba Catholic Church in Dothan, Alabama, and his friends at Somerset, where he was a beloved figure.

In his professional life, Dominic served as a warehouse manager in North Carolina, a position he held with dedication until an injury occurred in his early thirties that led to an early disability. However, this setback did not diminish his spirit or his involvement in his community. Dominic was a faithful member of St. Columba Catholic Church and an active member of the Knights of Columbus, embodying the spirit of service and fellowship.

Dominic's interests and hobbies were a reflection of his vibrant personality. In his healthier years, he was an avid bowler and a lifelong baseball enthusiast, passions that stayed with him throughout his life. Known for his stubbornness, Dominic would often say with a hint of pride that no one ever won an argument against him. This trait was part of his charm, as friends would often lovingly disagree, knowing well his playful nature.

A social man at heart, Dominic never met a stranger. He relished being with people, whether it was engaging in conversation with fellow customers and cashiers during his frequent trips to Walmart or chatting with bank tellers, fellow churchgoers, and anyone he encountered throughout his day. His love for talking was only matched by his love of eating out, where he made it a point to know every waitress by name at his favorite restaurants.

Dominic's lack of driving never hindered his curiosity and desire to be part of the community. He enjoyed riding around Dothan, taking in both the new developments and the familiar sights of the town he loved. His friendly, faith-filled, and spirited nature made him a well-known and cherished figure in the community.

As someone who found joy in every interaction, Dominic lived by the principle that "A single sunbeam is enough to drive away many shadows," a sentiment beautifully expressed by St. Francis of Assisi. This quote encapsulates Dominic's approach to life, as he brought light and warmth to every room he entered and every life he touched.

Dominic's legacy is not merely in the memories he leaves behind but in the countless lives he enriched with his presence. His unwavering faith, his generous spirit, and his ability to connect with people from all walks of life are the hallmarks of a life well-lived. Dominic Joseph Musso will be remembered as a man who lived fully, loved deeply, and left an indelible mark on the hearts of those fortunate enough to have known him. His spirit will continue to inspire and guide us, and his memory will be cherished forever.

A celebration of Dominic's life will be held at St. Columba Catholic Church in Dothan, Alabama on Tuesday, April 9, 2024 at 11am with Father Jim Dane officiating. Memorial donations may be made to the Knights of Columbus in Dominic's honor. St. Columba is located at 2700 West Main Street, Dothan, Alabama.
