In memory of
Dominic "Luga" Furlano, 88, of North Versailles, peacefully went to be with the Lord on Monday, Nov. 4, 2019. Dom was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Barbara Furlano.

He is also survived by many nieces and nephews. Dom was preceded in death by his parents, John and Jennie Furlano; sisters, Patricia Wadkowski and Frances Furlano; and brother-in-law, Luke Fagan. Dominic was a hard worker and loyal family man. He served his country as an Army sergeant in Korea and returned home to start a family with his true love, Barb. Dom worked for Union Railroad, Westinghouse Electric and Bristol Babcock until he "retired." In his retirement, he continued to work every day, running Manmarc LTD alongside his son, Mark, with the help of Michael and Gina for many years.

For 60 years, he was a member of St. Robert Bellarmine Church, where he served as an usher.
