Frederick Salvatore DePasquale, 85, of Palos Verdes Estates, CA, passed away peacefully at his home on May 15, 2019, after a long battle with Alzheimer’s. Fred was a devoted husband, father, grandpa, great-grandpa, brother, and friend. He lived a full and accomplished life. Fred was born on September 4, 1933 in Brooklyn, New York to Victor and Fay DePasquale. He spent the first 38 years of his life in New York surrounded by family and lifelong friends. Fred attended the City College of New York and graduated in 1955 with a degree in Business Administration. He went on to earn his MBA at NYU and later became a CPA. He married Ellen, his “Queen,” in 1956 and together they raised two daughters. Shortly after, Fred entered the U.S. Army and served his time in Paris, France. Ellen followed him to France and they spent a year enjoying their time in Paris and traveling to nearby cities. After his discharge in 1958, he began his career in Finance at Lorillard Tobacco Company. He then worked for Borden and moved his family to Worthington, Ohio where he met many new friends and started to play tennis, which became a lifetime hobby. Fred’s final move was to California in 1979 to work at The Southland Corporation. He loved living in Palos Verdes and enjoyed taking all of his visitors around the hill to enjoy the beautiful scenery and ocean views. Fred enjoyed playing tennis, walking, and baseball. He was a die-hard Yankee fan but Fred’s favorite pastime was spending time with his family. He was generous and always put his needs last. He was a loving and supportive dad and father-in-law and he adored all of his grandchildren. He attended almost all of their sporting events and dance recitals. He especially enjoyed the baseball games played by Michael and Cole from Little League through high school. He was preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Casper. He leaves behind his wife of 63 years, Ellen, two daughters, Donna Schuchard (John) and Doreen Myhre (Erlend); five grandchildren, Christy Burden (Josh), Melissa Warschauer (Jason), Michael Schuchard (Monica), Cole Myhre, and Cassidy Myhre; three great-grandchildren, Jake and Cade Burden and Riley Warschauer; and two sisters, Madelene Puleio and Patricia Sentiff. He will be greatly missed by all that knew him. A private memorial service will be held at St. John Fisher Church in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The Alzheimer’s Association in his honor.

  1. I am deeply sad that my Uncle passed. He was a man of wisdom and a kind heart. The family chain is broken we lost another link and nothing seems the same. As God takes us one by one the chain will link again. RIP. Love Always, Ricky
