He was the son of the late Alexander J. Frederic and Gertie Veron Frederic and stepson of the late Marian T. Frederic.

He is survived by his wife of 54 years Mary Ann Doran Frederic; his children, John (Jay) Frederic, Laura F. Poirier (Eric), Christopher D. Frederic (Jeanie), Maria “Teau” Frederic (Beth), and his precious Ella.

He was so very proud of his grandchildren, Patrick and Alex McCarroll, Matthew, Melanie and Doran Frederic, Lindy Donahue, Grant Hayes and Alyssa Gamberella.

John was also survived by stepbrothers Michael (Cheryl) and Malcolm (Linda) Torres and sisters-in-law Mary Ann Oubre, Rosemary Frederic and Libby Doran, as well as numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.

John “Poochie” grew up in Lutcher. He was a graduate of Jesuit High School and served in the U.S. Navy. He was an avid rabbit hunter, fisherman and poker player. John was well known for his generosity, kindness and humor.

No one could tell a Boudreaux and Thibodaux joke like John.
