Julian “Bucky” Domanski

Posted By obits On July 13, 2020 @ 1:04 pm In Obituaries,Outer Banks | 34 Comments

Julian “Bucky” Domanski, 80, passed unexpectedly on Friday morning July 10, 2020, after making breakfast for his family.  Born June 18, 1940, in Bound Brook, New Jersey to the late Julian and Chesla Domanski.

He is survived by his wife Joy, daughter Julie, son David, son-in-law David, 3 grandchildren Samantha (22), Charles (17) and DJ (17), 3 sisters Virginia Decicco, Helcia Defazio, Stephanie Brienza, and 1 brother Robert Domanski.

Bucky was a hard-working, dedicated family man who grew up running the Domanski Dairy with his family.  He graduated from Bound Brook High School in 1958.  He served in the U.S. Army reserves.  For 26 years, he worked his way up the corporate ladder for Culligan Water in PA, CA, and MN.  In 1997, he purchased and ran a Culligan Franchise in Virginia Beach until selling the business in 2010, and permanently relocating to his Nags Head home.

Bucky was full of life and enjoyed gardening, swimming in the ocean, cooking, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.  He had a loud, hearty, laugh we heard often.   He always had some prank or shenanigan up his sleeve.

The few weeks before he passed were really good ones with an 80th birthday party, time on the beach, swimming in the ocean, picking the first couple of tomatoes from his garden, and short morning walks with his dog and long morning walks with his wife.

A Mass of the Resurrection will be celebrated at 11:15 am on Thursday, July 16, 2020, at Holy Trinity by the Sea Catholic Chapel, 7335 Virginia Dare Trail, Nags Head, NC by Father John Hanley, osfs.  Visitation will begin at 10:00 am.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to his favorite charity, National Geographic Society (donate.ngs.org/give2020).  He wanted to help save the lions.

We will miss his laugh.

Condolence from Michele Byrd on July 14th, 2020 8:58 pm

Dear Joy, Julie and Family,
I am so sorry for your loss and while I share your tears having spent years working with Julie and just a few hours with Bucky over oysters there under the beach house, it brings me a memory of joy! I tell the story of how I didn’t eat oysters until I meet Bucky to everyone now, as I order a plate full of steamed oysters whenever I can!!! He told me I just wasn’t eating them right and boy was that true!!! I also know from my friendship with Julie that he was an amazing Father and has been an inspiration to your entire family . I wish you all much comfort and peace in the days ahead. “Therefore you too have grief now; but I will see you again, and your heart will rejoice, and no one will take your joy away from you.” John 1622 Cherish your memories.
Much love, Michele

Condolence from Liz Cuccovia on July 14th, 2020 9:50 pm

Condolence from Amy McCarter on July 15th, 2020 7:54 am

I never had the honor of meeting you personally, but I have met your daughter and they say our biggest legacy is defined in our children we leave behind. In knowing your daughter, I can tell you worked hard and played harder. You worked to live. You loved life to the fullest, took every moment in and put family above all else. I can only imagine the pain your passing has left. Julie and family, you are all in my thoughts and heavy on my heart. The death of a loved one is never easy, but when it’s unexpected that wound has to be so much deeper and harder to accept. I pray your memories help comfort you in your hardest hours of grieving.
“Tears will heal, memories will comfort, but love will always remain.”
With love and sympathy,
Amy McCarter

Condolence from Nikkole Aho on July 15th, 2020 11:33 am

Julie and Family,

I am so sorry for your very big loss. I can only imagine what you all are going thru. I loved meeting Bucky at the Outer Banks! He was a firecracker with a great spirit that his daughter 100% inherited. Julie… I know how much your father meant to you and so happy that you all had some great days and family time before he passed. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this most difficult of time.

Condolence from Sean Ullman on July 15th, 2020 11:43 am

Dear Julie and Family,

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Domanski at a dinner meeting at Julie’s House in the Outer Banks. I remember standing at the end of the long kitchen counter, Bucky sitting on the stool facing me, and spending time chatting with him. Let it be known that we were also drawn together by the abundance of oysters at that end that no one seemed to be eating, that we were quite happy to “help out” with. We spoke on and off that night, the topics I can hardly recall. What I do remember was how comfortable and enjoyable it was being around him. A “salt of the earth” man, with a great sense of humor, who you could tell loved his life and the people who were part of it…
I was greatly saddened when I heard the news about his passing the other day. While the pain and sorrow you are now dealing with is so difficult, be comforted by your many happy memories and the part of his soul that lives in each of you…

God Bless…


Condolence from Karin Godwin on July 15th, 2020 11:53 am

Dear Joy and family,
I’m so sorry to hear about your loss. I know some of what you are experiencing, as you know, I’ve lost 2 husbands in the past. You are lucky to have family close by and you can offer physical support as well as emotional.
He will always be loved in your heart and will rest there permanently. The memories you shared will be played over and over in your mind. May they comfort you.
He sounds like he was a fun loving person. You can’t ask for more.
Peace come to you and your family.
With great sympathy,
Karin Godwin

Condolence from Jack Dericks on July 15th, 2020 12:21 pm

Dear Julie and family
My sympathies are with you as you go through this difficult time. I had not the pleasure of meeting your dad or being at your famous OBX meetings but I know he was awesome because you are, and how much you loved him by the way you spoke of him. May you find peace and strength in your family and friends who love you. You have always been there for others and they will be there for you.
God bless, my prayers are with you and your family.

Uncle Buck,
Thank you for the influences you have had on so many.
Prayers sent to Julie and the family.
Calm blue ocean ahead Sir.

Condolence from Suzanne Cooper on July 15th, 2020 3:41 pm

Dear Joy – I was so very sorry to hear that Bucky had passed. I know you have many family and friends to help you get through this difficult time, but wanted to add my sincere condolences. My guess is you both found a new appreciation of life and family when he had the scare a few years ago, so I’m very thankful you had that time. Wishing you peace and comfort as you begin the healing process. We miss you.
Suzanne Cooper

Cannot begin to count the number of nights my family sat around your dining room table to enjoy your great food and the best of times. Oh the story telling and laughing that went on!! We will treasure those moments forever.
You have taught us all so much but most importantly your kindness, hospitality, and generosity will never be forgotten.
Thank you. We love you.
