Dominick Cuti


CAIRO – Dominick Cuti, 52, passed away on Wednesday, January 5, 2022 at Albany Medical Center Hospital after a brief illness. He was born in Hudson on January 13, 1969, a son of the late Dominick and Dorothy Bonomolo Cuti. Dominick was raised in Cairo and graduated from Cairo-Durham High School. He was the proprietor of Dominick’s Barber Shop in Cairo, and co-owner of Blue Danube Wine & Spirits, and O’Neilleo’s Traveling Kitchen. Dominick was a man of deep faith, and a communicant of Sacred Heart Church in Cairo. He enjoyed hunting, traveling to Maine, and taking care of his family. Dominick liked to tease people and knew how to push people’s buttons. He would bust your chops, but that was a sign that he liked you. He also made up nicknames for everyone, and was known for his big laugh. Dominick loved his large family, and was the one who kept the family together. Cairo got a little quieter today, but Heaven got a lot louder.

Dominick is survived by his wife, Lalena Powers Cuti; five children, Ali (Annmarie) Haidar, Melissa Haidar, Jennifer Cuti, Christina Cuti, and Grace Cuti; two brothers, Thomas (Janeth Waldron) Cuti and August Cuti; his cousin, Anthony “Uncle Tony” Grillo; nephews and nieces, Joshua Cuti, Jonathan Cuti, Vincent Cuti, Adam Hunt, A.J. (Lexie) Cuti, Susan Biagioni, Crystal Biagioni, Robert Hladik, and Christopher Hladik. In addition to his parents, Dominick was predeceased by his grandmother, Rose Cuti, who was a very important member of the family.

Calling hours will be Sunday, January 9th, from 1 to 5 p.m. at A.J. Cunningham Funeral Home, 4898 State Route 81, Greenville. Funeral Mass will be offered on Monday, January 10th at 11 a.m. in Sacred Heart Church, 35 Church Street, Cairo, followed by burial in Round Top Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105-9959 will be appreciated. Condolence page is available at
