Dominick "Mickey" Lapresi was born on July 1, 1922, in Jessup, Penn., the eldest son of immigrant parents, the late Vincenzo and Angeline Lapresi. At age 10 his family moved to Clifton Springs in October 1932, finding work with the Lehigh Valley and New York Central Railroads. Mickey was a graduate of the Class of 1940 of Clifton Springs High School and was the sole survivor of this class. Mickey had secured jobs in his uncle's grocery store and with the railroad when he was drafted by the U.S. Army. He served from 1942-1946 in the Army Air Corps as a Master Sergeant in both the European and Pacific Theaters on the Islands of the Azores and Okinawa. Thus he was a member of the "Greatest Generation." Being shipped out on Christmas Eve 1942, Mickey made a promise to his Lord that if grace allowed him to return safely home, he would celebrate his Savior's Birth in grand fashion. For many years, his elaborate, creative Christmas decorations graced the lawn of his home with the Nativity being the focal point to present day. With the help of his father, Mickey purchased his downtown Phelps storefront building through the U.S. Mail while still in the Army. When he returned home, he opened Lapresi's Market Grocery Store and was the neighborhood grocer. He began making pizza in his deli and later founded M&B (Mickey and Beverly) Pizza Products in 1958. He was one of the first in the greater N.Y. area to manufacture a dairy case pizza (Tower of Pizza) and wholesale distributor of pizza products. Mickey was a self-made businessman all his life and together with his #1 partner and loving wife Beverly, and their six children, they operated many other businesses including Phelps Christmas Tree Wonderland for 65 years, the Phelps Pizza Pit, and Beverly's Fried Dough. Lapresi's Pizza and Fried Dough was found at many local carnivals, fairs and festivals and continues to be the only consistent original food vendor of the Phelps Sauerkraut Festival for 48 years. Lapresi's Pizza Emporium & Deli continues to operate by family members. Mickey was instrumental in community organizations including Phelps Little League Baseball and American Legion Easter Egg Hunts, two of his favorites. He was an avid model train and antique toy collector. Together with his wife and children, he was a world traveler and has visited many countries across the globe including many trips to his parents homeland in Italy. Mickey was a lifelong member of the Seeley B. Parish Post #457 of the Phelps American Legion, receiving his 70 year pin in November 2014. He was a proud participant of the W.W.II Veterans Honor Flight. Mickey was a lifelong member of St. Francis Catholic Church in Phelps. He is survived by his loving wife of 60 years Beverly (Ricci); daughters, Yvonne (Charles) Goldman, Valerie (Jerome) Schmitz, Michele (Larry) Turner; sons, Daniel (Elaine Parsons) Lapresi, David (Patricia Claus) Lapresi and Dennis Lapresi; 14 grandchildren; and one great-grandchild; foreign Exchange Students Manuel and Javi Leis; brother, Rocco (Virginia) Lapresi of Clifton Springs; sister, Theresa Childs of Royal Palm Beach, Florida; nephews, Douglas Smith and Frank Colotti and friend Wilfredo Rivera who never left his side. He was preceded in death by his parents; brother, Frank; and sisters, Archangela and Rose Colotti and daughter-in-law Karen Mouton Lapresi.
