Michael J. Domenus, age 80, died on October 7th, 2019 at Virtua Hospital, Mt. Holly. Michael was a lifelong resident of the Riverside area and enjoyed being part of a small town. For a short time, he along with his father, were even employees at the famous Watchcase in town. After high school he entered the US Army. Becoming a military police officer his services took him to Georgia, Paris France and Fort Dix New Jersey. After his military career he married and started a family. He was a devoted father, husband and friend to many. Fishing, playing softball and bowling were some of his favorite pastimes as a younger man. Handy and helpful, he worked as a mechanic at Hooker Chemical, Hoeganaes Corporation and then Occidental Chemical for many years and took that talent elsewhere to help others with their fix-it needs. This was not limited to a hammer and wrench, but Mike was also your man if your laptop was on the brink; he was always eager to help. An easygoing guy who loved the simple things in life like a good joke, “active” watching of a good Eagles or Phillies game, and frequenting the Jersey shore boardwalk. He was the husband of the late Frances; the father of the late Michele, Francine (Brian) Pomarici, Janette Domenus and Michael; grandfather of Brian and Elena; and brother of Maryann Doherty, Joe, Butch, Lorraine Pasqua and Diane Bernd.
