James J. Juliano
May 5, 2022
James J. Juliano, 95, Carbondale, entered into eternal life Thursday at Geisinger CMC in Scranton surrounded by his closest loved ones. He is reunited with his beloved wife, Vivian, who entered into eternal life March 31.
Born in Carbondale on July 18, 1926, he was the son of the late Augustino and Rose Oliveri Juliano. He was a graduate of Benjamin Franklin High School, class of 1943. Following his graduation, he enlisted in the United States Army, where he served and was honorably discharged in 1946.
Before his retirement in 1985, he was employed for more than three decades at Farview State Hospital correctional facility as a guard and later in the recreation department as music director. He was an accomplished trumpet player and musician and led several musical combos for more than four decades playing at countless events throughout the region.
He was a longtime member of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Carbondale. He loved music, playing golf and watching sports, especially baseball, where he spent several nights watching West Coast games into the wee hours of the morning. But most of all, he loved spending time with his family, especially sharing Italian dishes with them on Sunday afternoons.
He is survived by his beloved son, James Juliano Jr. and wife, Debra, Archbald; his beloved granddaughter, Jamie Buonomo and husband, Mark; great-grandchildren, Marco and Ella Buonomo, Carbondale; step-granddaughter, Shannon Burke Phillips and husband, Chris; along with several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife of 68 years, Vivian; beloved daughter, Paula Juliano Kolesar; a sister, Josephine Tolerico and husband, John; a brother, Paul Juliano and wife, Marie; and two infant sisters.
The family would like to express their sincere thanks and gratitude to Traditional Home Health Care, especially RN Sue P. and PT Mike B. for their excellent and compassionate care.
The funeral will be Tuesday from Lawrence A. Gabriel Funeral Home and Cremation Services Inc., 74 N. Main St., Carbondale, with a Mass of Christian Burial at 11 a.m. in Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church, 15 Fallbrook St., Carbondale.
