Domain Leo Bricco was born to Leo and Mabel Olesen Bricco in the village of Bear Creek, Wis. Domain was baptized at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Bear Creek. After living in North Dakota and Longview, Wash., the family returned to the central Wisconsin area, where he attended public school in White Lake, Wis. At a very young age, Domain worked in the logging camps along with his father, who used teams of horses to move the logs to the sawmill, to help support the family.
In 1928, the family returned to Bear Creek, where he met Eunice Babino in 1937. They married Sept. 4, 1940, and began to raise their children, Lyle, Sharon and Leslie. He worked for Clintonville Four Wheel Drive in the transmission assembly plant prior to World War II.
During the war, he worked for Atlas Conveyor Co., which built conveyor belts for the U.S. Navy.
Following the war, Domain worked for a bulk oil distributor performing service work and delivering fuel oil to area villages and farmers.
In 1951, they moved to Clarkston, where he was employed by Potlatch Forests Inc., now Potlatch Corp., in the pulp and paper mill as a journeyman millwright, retiring in 1975. While with Potlatch, he put his skills as a millwright to use solving hundreds of tough problems. His penchant for solving problems carried over to his private life, and he would not rest until problems, which would appear to others as either impossible or very difficult, would have a solution. If you could envision and describe it, he could build it.
Domain was very active in Holy Family Catholic Church and School activities. His hobbies were walking, traveling with tour groups, and square and round dancing with the Twin City Twirlers and Boston Street Steppers. He and Eunice held state offices in these clubs several times.
Domain was a life member of the Knights of Columbus and a charter member of the Knights 4th Degree. He was a past grand knight 3rd degree and past faithful navigator 4th degree.
He was active in the Moose Lodge, the Pautler Senior Center, Gerontology Center and the Asotin County Food Bank.
He was preceded in death by his parents; three sisters, Gladys Martin, Zelda Bricco and Florence Mathewson; and two brothers, Joseph and Leonard Bricco.
