OBITUARY

John "Jack" Thomas Giuliano

December 5, 1933September 27, 2019

Jack liked to say that in 1933 the population of Bear Gulch was four until it increased to five on December 5th when he was born to Michael and Elizabeth Giuliano and joined his sisters Shirley Lee and Evelyn Carol. Jack met the love of his life, Clara Carestia, in High School and on March 6, 2019 they celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary surrounded by their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Jack enlisted in the Navy during the Korean War and served on the USS Radford DD447 as an Electrician’s Mate First Class. Jack attended Colorado State University, graduated in 1961 with a BS in Electrical Engineering and remained a life long Ram’s fan. He opened Jack’s Electric from 1961 until he “retired” in 1977 and at one time was the youngest Master Electrician in Colorado. In 1978 he joined his son in Giuliano and Father Construction and when asked when he would officially retire he declared “never”. He served on many boards including the State Electrical Licensing Board, VoTec Trade School Advisory Board, Chairman of the Contractor’s Licensing Board and ELCO, to name a few. Family was the center of Jack’s life and he is survived by his wife, Clara; four children: Liz (Tim), John (Patti), Lori (Steve) and Lisa (Mitch); nine grandchildren: Marina (Tom), Nicholetta (Zach), Jake, John Michael, Blake, Allison (Chris), Samantha (Lane), Dani (Scott), and Todd (Peggy): and eleven great-grandchildren: Tucker, Toby, Paxton, Barrett, Robert, Ashley, Timothy, Susan, Cassie, Brenna and Eric. His family has lost their heart and center and will miss him greatly.

Dear Clara and family, I met Jack through Stan Hannah and remember some grand times. Certain episodes will be omitted to protect the innocent. He had a physical presence that was wonderful, plus the smile and his amazing laugh. I send my sympathies and ask God to continue to shed his Grace upon you. Pat Madden Mesa, AZ

Dearest Aunt Clara & Cousins,
My heart is deeply saddened over the loss of this Amazing Man, my Uncle. He always made me feel SO loved. My time at Giuliano & Father Const. was, by far, THE Best workplace ever. And I’ll always be grateful for that opportunity and the experience. I’m feeling blessed for all the wonderful memories during my 67 years of having this wonderful man in my life.

Dear Aunt Clara and family,
I am so sorry for your loss. Uncle Jack was such a warm and pleasant person. He always had a friendly smile that was sure to brighten your day. I have so many great memories of the times we spent together in Ft. Collins at your home, skiing together in Breckenridge, and playing golf together in Canon City during the Duffers' Tournament. I know that he will be missed by everyone that knew him. I pray that God will bring you peace and comfort during your time of sorrow.
Love and blessings to you all,
Rocco Carestia

Jack was my Godfather when I was confirmed, many years ago, at St. Joseph's. He worked at a coal mine in Florence, Colorado for the same tough mine foreman that I worked for many years later at a coal mine in Palisade, Colorado. He and my father, Jack Temple, a PSCO Lineman, were good friends. It has been rare to see Jack these last several years, but he has always and will always be held in great esteem. He was a wonderful person in many ways. I share your loss. Jim Temple

My Dear Aunt Clara and Family,
I am so sorry for your loss. I will miss Uncle Jack . You and Uncle Jack have been and will always be a very bright light in my life.

I will Never forget when Scott and I had just moved to Arizona. We were all alone no one there, no family. It was truly the first time that I had felt that alone. You and Uncle Jack got ahold of me and asked to have lunch with me.

We went to lunch and you both told me is so many words, that you loved me, you both believed in me and had faith in me to make the right decisions.
I Love you Aunt Clara and Uncle Jack!
Love Always,
Scott & Christina
