James Emanuel Giuliano (“Jim”), 71, recently of Marshfield, MA, died April 1, 2020, after a brief illness.

Born October 1, 1948, in Middletown, CT, to Emanuel S. Giuliano and Beatrice A. (MacDonnell) Giuliano, Jim was the youngest of four siblings, including sisters Caroline Murphy, Mary Faraci, and brother John Giuliano.

Jim graduated from Cromwell High School in 1966. He had many fond memories of his hometown, including leading his high school baseball team to its state championship and attending Woodstock 1968 with his childhood friends, many of whom he kept in touch with his entire life.

Jim earned his B.S. from Fairfield University in 1970 and his M.S. in Computer Science from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 1981. He loved working in computer sales and met lifelong friends along the way.

He married his beloved wife, Kathleen T. (Doucette) Giuliano, in 1987, and raised treasured daughters, Victoria and Emily, in Westborough, MA. Jim and Kathy moved to Sarasota, FL in 2011, where he enjoyed working as a substitute teacher, fishing and crabbing, his cat Maxi, enjoying the sunshine, and not shoveling snow.

Jim is survived by his daughter Victoria and son-in-law Darren Fruzzetti of Marshfield, MA, and daughter Emily of Jamaica Plain, MA. He also leaves behind many cherished nieces, nephews, grand-nieces, grand-nephew, and friends. He is reunited in death with his wife, Kathy (d. July 27, 2017), siblings, and parents, all of whom predeceased him.

Jim loved gardening, cooking (especially pasta sauce and meatballs), classic rock, and the New England Patriots, and was disappointed to learn that he left the Tampa area just before Tom Brady’s arrival. He cared about others and taught us to lend a hand to those in need, and showed us that it’s possible to find joy even in hard times. A celebration of his life will follow at a later date.
