Dominic Lusk Kansas City


Lusk, Dominic Michael, is an African – American and he was born on 1st April, in the year 1962 in Texas. Dominic Lusk was born 36 months after his elder sister (Lynda) but two years ahead of his younger brother (Richard) in Texas. Much of Dominic’s nacent life was spent in absolute ignorance about the great African - American civil rights motion which engulfed the whole nation; a which was responsible for him and his likes to run their lives with respect and freedom. His archetypal Afro – American parenting had been strict, disciplinarian and yet, brimming with love and affection. His parents did not have the advantage of education and were employed as unskilled workers; that did not permit a good life style but they made sure that their young ones were never deprived of any of their basic necessities. The importance of education was not lost to Dominic’s parents and they did all things possible to enable all their children to attend school.

Dominic was an good student and still takes joy from the fact that he was better than his sister and brother at education. During the year 1975, Dominic’s father decided to partner his brother’s business and the Lusk family shifted to Kansas City, because of this. Dominic persued with his studies in Dominic Lusk Kansas City and parallelly, started to help his father and uncle in their milk delivery business. His teens was as regularly common, as his childhood had been. Dominic by now was well aware of his heritage and thankful for the relative freedom that his generation enjoyed. Dominic Lusk's greatestforemost influence at this age was not Martin Luther King but surprisingly, an African American fire fighter by the name Robert Lowery, who became the first black fire commissioner in the country. Dominic had a desire to become a fire fighter like his role model. When he completed school with good marks, he shared this desire to his parents and also told them that he had no inclination to pursue bigger education. His parents had to unwillingly abide to this and Dominic right away joined the fire service of Dominic Lusk Kansas City to live his dream.

As the years passed by, Dominic’s appeal and passion for fire fighting slowly reduced as he found out that the fire fighter’s job was tough, arduous and thankless; which demanded huge hours and extremely small rewards. His lack of higher education also lessened his opportunities to move up the work ladder. But, he had a regular job that paid adequately. In 1986, he married Nancy (who is his long lost relative from his mother’s side), after a love affair of two years. Dominic’s son William was born in the year 1988 and that is when Dominic realized that he had to finish higher studies to earn more for his family. He took up part time studies and since he had always been a above average student, he was able to complete his graduation within four years. Just before his graduation, Dominic was given an opportunity to shift to the administrative division in the fire service department. He happily moved and still continues to work there till today. The years between 1993 and 2003 were unremarkable work wise but was full of sadness personally. He lost his father in 1994, his mother passed away in 1998 and his life partner left this world in 2003. What a painful period of 10 years!

Dominic Lusk decided not to remarry after his wife’s demise and opted to be a single parent to his son. William is 20 years old as on date and is on the cusp of completing his graduation. Dominic’s duties towards his family are almost over and he now is looking forward to the day when he can live for himself; he wants to start his happy childhood all over again!
