Dominick A. Santoro

April 9, 1947 - May 20, 2016

Dominick A. Santoro, 69, passed away May 20, 2016 in Murray, Utah.  He had fought a three week battle with flu-like symptoms, resulting in a host of many internal and severe brain diseases.  The family urges others to get their flu shots to prevent this from happening to themselves or their loved ones.


Dominick was born April 9, 1947 in Syracuse, New York to Anthony and Rose Santoro.  He graduated from North Syracuse High School.


Dominick was married to two wonderful ladies, Patricia Claar and Kathleen Campbell.  After two divorces he moved on to live the bachelor life.


Dominick retired from the United States Air Force as a Master Sergeant.  He continued his career with Hercules Aerospace as a Quality Control Inspector.


Later in life Dominick found his true labor of love at Round Valley Golf Course in Morgan, Utah.  He found a desire for year round golf and moved to Mesquite, Nevada to continue his career and long line of friendships.


Dominick is survived by daughters, Christine Dale (Utah), Kimberly McLean (Colorado); grandsons, Jeffery Rutledge, Shain and Dustin Velasquez; granddaughter, Brianna Dale; great grandson, Camden Rutledge; sister, Santa Vaughn (Arizona); two nieces, Rosealee Caillouette and Ana Marie Cancel; and several cousins in New York.  We love and will miss you, Dad.  Until we meet again in Heaven.


He is preceded in death by his parents, Anthony and Rose Santoro.


A Celebration of Life will be held at the Round Valley Golf Course in Morgan, Utah in the month of September.


Arrangements under the direction of Leavitt’s Mortuary, 836 36th Street, Ogden, Utah.

We were very sad to hear about Don passing away in May. We were Don's neighbors in Layton Utah and moved to Washington. We always had a fun time with Don and his girl friend Julie when we got together. We golfed many times together and he was a great golfer also. He had an infectious laugh and if Don was laughing everyone was laughing. He was a great and caring man with a great sense of humor and he will always be in our thoughts. Condolences to his family. He will be missed by many, it was too soon.

We were his neighbors. We are so upset to learn of his passing. He was a great guy. We will miss his smile and his sense of humor. We came down from SLC several days ago. He was not home. We thought he was on a fun trip with one of his new love. We like to think he is having fun somewhere!!!
