Obituary for Frederick Restaino

Frederick  Restaino
FREDERICK A. RESTAINO, PhD, devoted husband, brother, loving father, and proud grandfather passed away peacefully in his home in Maple Glen, PA, on June 17, 2018, at the age of 83. He had spent 60 wonderful years with his soulmate --his “treasure” – Camille (nee Giordano), with whom he raised three beloved children, Fred Restaino (Eileen), Debbie Giovannone (John), and Denise Magill (Dave), and cherished grandchildren, John (Gen), Nicholas (Taylor), Charlie, Alaina, Ryan, David, and Kathryn. He was a dear brother to Neil (Marie) the late Alfred (Rae) and the late Clement (Rose), and an especially close brother-in-law to Marie Colasante (Richard) and Pat Giordano (Stella). He deeply loved all of his nieces, nephews, and great niece and great nephews.
Frederick, “Fred,” was born in Brooklyn, New York, son of the late Clement and the late Celia (nee Orlando) Restaino. Though he raised his family in Horsham and later Maple Glen, PA, he never truly left behind his New York roots and remained a devout Yankees fan his whole life. He attended St. John’s Preparatory High School and on June 29, 1958 married Camille, the love of his life, with whom he was inseparable for the next 60 years. A lifelong academic, Fred was a proud alumnus of St. John’s College of Pharmacy in New York City; Rutgers University, where he obtained a Master of Science in Pharmaceutical Chemistry; and Purdue University, where he earned a PhD in Physical Pharmacy. He harbored a great love for research science and went on to work 34 fondly remembered years at Merck in West Point, PA, where he served as Senior Director of Research and Development for 13 years and made many lifelong friends. Few topics of conversation could light up his face like his time at Merck, with the important exception of his family, which always remained his one true joy.
Those who met Fred even for a short time will remember him as a man of great warmth, generosity, integrity, and faith. He enjoyed life’s simple pleasures, including watching Wheel of Fortune every night, working on jigsaw puzzles, and above all, spending time with his family.
Family and friends of Fred are invited to attend his viewing Thursday, June 21, 2018, from 9:30am until 10:30am, followed by his funeral mass 11:00am at St. Alphonsus Church (33 Cornwell Drive, Maple Glen PA 19002), where Fred was a devout parishioner for over 30 years. His interment will be in St. John Neumann Cemetery, Chalfont, PA. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to Fox Chase Cancer Center, 333 Cottman Ave., Phila., PA 19111 or www.FoxChase.org. Share memories at www.DiGiacomoFuneralHome.com.
