Michael Dominguez, 52, went to be with the Lord Saturday, July 18, 2015. He was born July 17, 1963 in Morenci, AZ, to Raul & Betty Dominguez.
He attended Clifton High School where he graduated in 1981. Michael went on to pursue his career as a Journeymen Lineman and then later furthered his career by becoming a Linemen Supervisor for Morenci Water & Electric. He met the love of his life, Laura Castañeda, at the age of 14, and they married and raised four children.
Michael was a loving devoted husband, father, and “Papa”. His family meant the world to him. He enjoyed family cook-outs, holidays, birthday celebrations, and the beautiful outdoors, but for anyone who knew Michael, knew that spending time with his family and grandbabies was his ultimate joy. He was a member of the Sacred Heart Parish Church and the Beneficio Propio Club.
Michael is survived by his loving wife of 32 years, Laura Dominguez, and his children; Jamie (Omar) Medina, Paul Dominguez, Trisha (Cody) Rivera, and Sarah Dominguez, his five grandchildren; Omarcito, Elyse, Emily, Olivia, and Jazzy, siblings; Rex (Pam) Jones, Shirley (Mike) Stewart, Barbara Aryes, Angel Peña-Dominguez, and Ashley Dominguez.
He was preceded in death by his beloved parents; Raul & Betty Dominguez, sister; Lynn Merino, father-in-law; Jose “Titi” Castañeda, and brother-in-law; Larry Serna.
Papa you touched the lives of so many people with your warm and generous heart. We couldn’t be more proud to call you our Dad. Your smile was contagious. You left a legacy and an imprint on our hearts forever. We will continue to carry on your way of life by always being there for each other, staying strong, and forever taking care of Mom. We miss and love you with our entire hearts, until the chain links again Dad.
