Dominick Roscino Jr.

June 26, 1938 ~ January 18, 2024


Dominick Roscino, Jr., age 85, died peacefully at the Kaplan residence in Newburgh on January 18, 2024. Dominick was the son of Mary (Scalzo)and Dominick Roscino Sr. He was born on June 26, 1938 in Newburgh.

He was a graduate of NFA, class of 57, and he was an outstanding basketball player. His nickname was “Dynamic Dom”. After graduation, he enlisted in the United States Navy. He was awarded the Good Conduct Medal for saving a man’s life. He was honorably discharged in 1961.

On June 26, 1964, he proposed to the love of his life, Judy McMillen, and one year later on June 26, 1965, they were married in St. Mary’s Church in Newburgh . Since June 26th was his birthday, he would never forget the date of their anniversary.

For many years, he played golf at the Newburgh Country Club, was a member of the Town of Newburgh Lions Club, was the chairman of the Town of Newburgh Republican Committee, was on the Reunion Committee for the NFA Class of 57, and volunteered for the Friends of Seniors.

More recently, he belonged to Club 60 in the City of Newburgh, and really looked forward to the weekly meetings, bingo, and the many trips we took with the club.

Dom always had a sense of humor, but he always had a very sensitive,  and caring side, he enjoyed helping people.

Most of all he loved his family. He is survived by his wife of 58 years, Catherine  (Judy) Roscino, son, Dominick (Lori) Roscino III, daughter, Kimberly Dando and husband Todd, and granddaughters, Haley, Grace, Lindsay and Anna. He is also survived by his sister, Rose (Maurice) Talbot, sisters-in-law, Sandy McMillen, and Mildred (James)Walsh. He is also survived by many nieces, nephews and cousins.

Dominick was pre-deceased by his parents, Dominick and Mary Roscino, his brother Joseph Roscino, Sr. & sister-in-law, Maryann Roscino and brother-in-law, Donald McMillen, Jr.

In keeping with Dom‘s wishes, services will be private.

We would also like to thank everyone who cared for Dom during this time, his doctors, Middletown Park Manor, Garnet Health, and the Kaplan Family Hospice Residence.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital or Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital in Dom’s memory.
