Charles "Charlie" Domenici

Charlie Domenici, lifetime resident of Albuquerque, passed away at his home on January 21, 2018. Charlie was a loving husband, father and grandfather. Charlie began his working career at the age of 14 working for his family's wholesale grocery business. Charlie was a star athlete at St. Mary's High School and later played basketball for The College of St. Joseph's on the Rio Grande. His athletic career was cut short when he was drafted into the army and served during the Korean War. Following the war, Charlie began working at H. Cook Sporting Goods. As an avid fisherman, hunter and outdoorsman, it was natural for him to open Charlie's Sporting Goods in 1972 where he was a staple for 45 years.

Charlie was preceded in death by his wife, Barbara. He is survived by: son, Dominic and wife, Shellie of Casper, WY; daughter, Valerie and husband, Charlie of Albuquerque, NM; son, Chuck and wife, Donna of Albuquerque, NM; and five grandchildren: Leslie Jackson of Albuquerque, NM, Jasper Domenici of Farmington, NM, Rici Domenici of Tucson, AZ, Quinlan Domenici of Albuquerque, NM, and Gabriella Domenici, of Albuquerque, NM.
