Frederick was born May 31, 1923, in the Bronx, N.Y., to Salvatore and Minnie (Squillante) Almerino. Graduating at 16 from high school, he attended City College before enlisting in the Army Air Force in 1942.  Returning to New York after World War II, he earned his CPA from Fordham University and met and married his beloved wife, Kathleen A.

After the loss of his wife of 38 years, he relocated to Brick, N.J., in 1995 and found happiness again with cherished companion of 18 years, Josephine Martino.  He is remembered for his devotion to his family, sage advice and ever-present love and support. He is survived by four children and their spouses, Celeste Whirt (James), Leslie Almerino (David Koczot), Megan Rock (John Martin), J.R Almerino (Laura), and loving grandchildren, Jessica, Sarah, Michael, Stephanie, Julia and Marissa.  Memorial contributions in Mr. Almerino's name may be directed to the Ocean Medical Center Foundation, 1345 Campus Parkway, S-A2, Neptune, N.J. 07753.
