Dominic Palmieri dies at 58

Retired 'MASH' lenser also taught in Florida

Dominic Richard Palmieri Jr., a retired cinematographer who lensed the TV series “MASH” for nearly a decade, died Feb. 2 of cancer at his home in central Florida. He was 58.

Palmieri, a native of Schnectady, N.Y., attended film school at the Brooks Institute in Santa Barbara before landing a job loading film on a studio lot.

Palmieri worked his way up to camera operator and finally an eight- year stint as director of photography on “MASH.”

He moved to Florida in 1990 to pursue work in the area’s budding film industry. Palmieri also taught at the U. of Central Florida.

He is survived by a son and daughter, a brother and his mother.

Services will be held at 10 a.m. Wednesday at St. Paul’s Catholic Church, 10750 Ohio St., Westwood. Much of Palmieri’s family resides in Southern California.

Family suggests donations in Palmieri’s name be made to the Leukemia Society of America, Central Florida Chapter, 3101 Maguire Blvd., Suite 225, Orlando, FL 32803.
