OBITUARY

Armando "Andy" Giuliano

April 4, 1928November 27, 2019

Armando Giuliano of Manchester, passed away at home surrounded by his loving family on Wednesday, November 27, 2019, at the age of 91.

Armando (Andy) Giuliano offered unconditional love and compassion for his family, friends, and strangers alike. He passed away peacefully, at home, surrounded by family on November 27, 2019 in Manchester, New Jersey. His family meant everything to him. He had a very strong work ethic and worked very long days in retail, though he always found time to spend time with his family, take vacation, and ensure he upheld all the family traditions. His wife Ceal was his rock. They could not have raised the family without each other.

Armando influenced many people throughout his life, instilling his strong sense of ethics, integrity and responsibility, foremost to his family and his second family at Branch Brook Company in Newark, New Jersey. He mentored many individuals who give him credit for their strong values and success on all levels of their life.

Armando was born on April 4, 1928 in Newark NJ to Alfredo and Vincenza (Jenny Mascellino) Giuliano. As soon as he got his license, he would drive his mother to the jersey shore. During one trip, he met Cecelia (Ceal) Carola, who unbeknownst to him was his neighbor on Highland Avenue. They married in 1949 and moved to East Hanover in 1959. For the past 15 years, he resided at the Renaissance in Manchester, NJ where he was a member of the Italian/American Club and Men’s Club. He was a lifetime member of the Brick Elks Lodge.

At the age of 14, he embarked on his business career at Branch Brook Co., starting by assembling and fixing bicycles. Over the 70 years at Branch Brook and Swim n' Play, he was instrumental in helping the Ventrice’s build their business. Known as “Andy” or “Mr. G”, to the employees and customers, he was a master at connecting with people. He focused on the customer and not the product and passed on his customer service skills to many people. He was able to turn a dissatisfied person into a happy, repeat customer. He was so loved and respected by the Ventrice family that they named their first electric bike after him....”R Mondo”.

Earlier this year he celebrated 70 years of marriage to Ceal. In addition to his loving wife, he leaves behind his children and their spouses: Armand Giuliano, Patti Giuliano (Peter Kevorkian), Theresa Mills (Doug Mills), and Linda Giuliano (Edward Rutland); his grandchildren: Kathryn Kevorkian (Alex Elliott), Christopher Kevorkian (Karen Anundson), Zachery Mills, Jonathan Mills, Christina Giuliano, and Erica Giuliano, many nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth, P.O. Box 476, Convent Station, NJ. 07961-0476.

Uncle Armando always told me I am his favorite niece. All along, I had a hunch he said that to all of his nieces and nephews. He was such a truly genuine, kind, gentle person, with unconditional love for everyone.

Mr. G took me under his wing at 16 years old when I started working at Branch Brook co. As a young man I had some difficult times and Mr. G was always there to speak to me and help me through the issues at hand. Now 40 years later and I am still employed by the Ventrice family. I am forever grateful for his help, guidance and friendship over the years. He will not be forgotten.

Mondo was a lifelong friend to my family. Beginning as a childhood friend of my father, Jack. We grew up knowing him as Uncle Armando. Mondo and Ceal are family to us. I had many "father-son" conversations with him over the years, learning so much about handling difficult situations and interacting with people. For Mondo, it was about personal connections and he knew how to bring out the best in those around him. His 70 year marriage to Ceal has been a thing of beauty to witness and be a part of. I am a better person for knowing Mondo. I thank God for gracing me with your love and guidance and I will never forget you. All my love, John.

"Mr. G" as Armando was known ,in our business world . Was a mentor to hundreds of young staff members in our company. I am constantly reminded by people I see who at one time or another " Mr. G" entered their life and shared his qualities with , and how he changed their life. Including myself and my children. He taught us Trust, fairness, hard work and the true meaning of friendship. His life was full and he always had room for one more person to share his knowledge and kindness with. I will miss him and cherish the times we spent together as friends .
Thank you "Mr. G". for your love and friendship.
