My deepest condolences to the D’Amico family on the loss of Fred. I remember meeting Fred and the rest of the D’Amico family when I was married to a close family friend, Ed Schmitt. Back then (80’s and 90’s), I got to know Fred who visited several times and whom I had seen at D’Amico weddings. He was always upbeat and funny and a great person to be around. I am so sad and surprised to hear of his passing. What a loss.

My deepest sympathy to family and friends. I learned a lot about Fred reading his obituary. I am related by my cousin Lisa’s marriage to Bill D’Amico and know that you are all surrounded by an abundance of love and support at this very difficult time.

Although I had not seen Fred since our high school days at Wayne Hills, I will always remember him as a good friend and classmate. He will be missed, but certainly not forgotten. Guy Swan

Here's a picture of Fred (probably around 1990) at one of our famous (infamous?) volleyball parties. Everyone looks tired because we were playing volleyball all day! Fred was a big part our group and we all remember him fondly.
I've known Fred since the summer of 1988, when we met at volleyball. We were both single guys who'd left the east coast to find a new life in the California sun, and I'll always remember going hiking with him, watching football, swapping stories and computer parts ("You can't use that graphics card with Windows 95! It'll trash your hard drive!"), and him always being there when I needed help.
And can't think about Fred without smiling. He was one of a kind.

I’ve been a DAmico now for nearly 43 years between dating Bill for many years prior to our marriage in 1984 and knowing & loving his family with Fred DAmico as one of his loving big brothers and boy was Fred one in a million. He was a good friend to my sister Jeanne and to so many from his WHHS graduating class of 1972 and he also enjoyed keeping in touch with them as well. Fred was our Photographer for our Wedding and took the most beautiful lasting images of our special day! Through the years, he always reached out to keep in touch with us here on the East Coast and my kids truly loved him as they all enjoyed bonding with him so many times over their musicianship and interests ... and boy oh boy was Fred talented!!! Fred had a true inner artistic talent .. he was funny .. interesting .. smart .. and he truly loved his family .. all of his kids Liza Bulic Rodriguez & Frank Deez & Teresa Page .. his son in-laws and all of his grandkids .. We all lost him way too soon .. there are no words! Please know that we’re sending lots of love and support your way .. please also know that our door is always open. With Love, Lisa xox ❤️ xox
