Domingo was born December 9, 1933 in Agana, Guam to Jesus Camacho Francisco and Maria Cruz Taitano Francisco. Domingo grew up in Guam and was drafted in the Army to serve in the Korean War. Upon his return he began building houses, enjoyed playing baseball, and caring for his family. The Los Angeles Dodgers came to Guam to offer him a roster position.

Together they had ten children; two girls and eight boys.
