Due to corona virus, the family requests Wednesday eve. at the Funeral Home, and Thursday morning at the Church Visitation, to be private.
Joined his wife Barbara at Gods right hand as he passed away peace-fully on May 15, 2020. Fred was a lifelong resident of Red Fox Lane in Strafford PA. Fred is predeceased by his mother Erminia, father Fred Sr. as well as his sisters Charlotte, Eleanor and Barbara. Fred is survived by his brother Anthony Domenick of Malvern PA.
Fred attended Tredyffrin Eastown High school and graduated in 1954. Fred was a two-year lettermen recipient in both Football and Basketball and was proud to be a part of the 1953 Ches-Mont League championship football team. Fred was later inducted into the "TE Old Timers" Hall of Fame, an organization he helped create with a few of his classmates. The purpose of this Hall of Fame was to recognize local athletes for their contributions both on and off the field.
Fred began working at the early age of 11 at the Domenick owned, Wayne Beverage Company.
Fred's weekends and spare time were spent mostly working with his uncles and cousins delivering beer and soda to homes and local establishments.
Fred was very proud to have served his country from 1954 to 1956 where he was able to visit many beautiful countries while making several wonderful friends. He spoke often about his experiences, and was proud to be an American.
In May of 1960 Fred married the love of his life, Barbara. At that time, their dream life of having a family began.
With Fred's entrepreneurial spirit, supportive wife, some luck, and a lot of hard work, led to the making of The Little Paddock Beef and Beer Tavern, which originated in 1960. Soon thereafter, Freddy the 3rd (Astrid), Tommy (Danielle), David (Patty), Michael (Michelle) and his beloved and only daughter Cheryl (Joseph Falcone) entered the family.
Fred's core values included hard work and integrity. "You could be anything you wanted to be in life if you worked hard and did the right thing", God would take care of the rest.
The Little Paddock was "home" for so many people, it wasn't just a place to go and have a sandwich and a beer, it was a place to go and talk about life and laugh for a while. Freddy made it that way!!
Freddy successfully retired from the Tavern in 1990 and spent the next 30 years completely immersed in his families lives. His wife, sons, daughter, and their children (Freddy IV, Stephanie, Thomas, Bryanna, Anthony, Christopher, Stephen, Alec, Nathan, Brodi, Bella, Joseph, Gabriella and Sophia) became the primary focus of his retired life.
There was always time for golf a few days a week, lunches with the boys, and plenty of dinners out with his bride. Fred's favorites were the yearly BBQ'S he would have on the deck on Memorial Day, the 4th of July, and Labor Day weekends.
Fred was an active member of the Wayne Lions Club, The Italian American Club in Wayne, and the Wayne Legion Post.

Cheryl, Fred, Mike, Tom, & David,
You must know how I felt about your Dad. He was one of my FAVORITE people I have ever met. Even though he wasn't my blood relative, I loved him like he was one!!! He was one of the nicest, funniest humans, and he was that way until the end. When I would see his name on the schedule in my office, it made me soooooo happy that he was coming in. We talked, laughed, and most times ran over the allotted appointment time, it was great. He obviously loved his family, as we talked about that all the time, and he ALWAYS asked about mine too. I'm glad he and Barbara(another great person) are together again; the way it should be. I hope you all find some solace in knowing that he was loved by so many people, me being among them. Hang in there and will see you all at the picnic. Oh, when Camille & I would go to the Domenick picnic, he was always one of the first people to come up to me and give me a hug. I will miss that. Doug

Freddie Domenick was one of the finest people I have ever known. He was always positive, upbeat, and would go out of his way to help others. His journey in life was a very successful one as he was a fantastic business man who everyone loved and respected. The entire Domenick family are beautiful people and I know that Freddie will be sorely missed. May God take care of you always Freddie and rest in peace!!!
