Rotterdam – Domenico Mancino, 88, passed away Thursday April 18, 2019 at home surrounded by his loving family.
Born in Melizzano, Italy, he was the son of Francesco and Maria Luigia Insogna Mancino.
He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Angelina (Insogna) Mancino whom he married on September 16, 1961; three children, Louise (Stephen) Heck of Loudonville, Frank (Brenda) Mancino of Rotterdam and Filomena (Brett) Reish of Guilderland; six grandchildren; Steven Heck, Dominick and Kyle Mancino, Caterina, Angelina and Ella Reish; four sisters; Carmelina (the late Angelo) Mezza, Giovanna (the late Lorenzo) Zarrelli, Emma (Guido) Sgueglia and Francesca (Luigi) Pasquariello.

Domenico came from Italy in 1962 with his wife and settled in Schenectady among family and friends. For many years he worked as a mason in the Schenectady area, building home foundations and laying brickwork. His family home of 50 years still stands strong today, along with many other homes and businesses in the area. Later in life, Domenico worked at St. Clare’s Hospital until his retirement. He enjoyed gardening, watching football, especially the NY Giants, his favorite team, win or lose. He was also known to play a game or two of bocce at family gatherings. A quiet man, he loved to be around family, compari, and paesani and listen to stories from ‘the old country’. He always enjoyed spending time with his beloved wife and children, but seeing his grandchildren brought him the most joy of all.
