MELBOURNE, FLA — Wilfred Noah Dominy, 61, was carried home to his heavenly father from his home in Melbourne, Fla., on Saturday, March 31, 2007.
Wilfred was born in Mooers Forks, N.Y., on Feb. 26, 1946, the son of William Dominy and Evelyn (Houle) Dominy Wells.
Willie grew up in West Chazy, N.Y., and graduated from Beekmantown Central School in 1964. He served in the U.S. Marine Corp. from 1967 to 1972.
Willie worked for many years at Dick's Customizing Shop in Plattsburgh, N.Y. He was married to Connie Sharlow on Sept. 29, 1979. Shortly after being married, they and their two children relocated to West Melbourne, Fla.
Willie was a quiet, gentle and kind person who loved working with his hands whether it was on anything that had a motor to gardening and cooking. He also loved to cruise the highways on his Harley Davidson. All who knew and loved him will surely miss him.
His wife, Connie of Melbourne, Fla., along with his daughter, Tammy Rizer and his son, Thomas Sharlow of Florida survive him.

His father predeceased him in 1962; along with his brother, Leonard in 2000.
