Family Funeral Care


James Frank Juliano

January 18, 1948November 12, 2020

James Frank Juliano, 72, of Orlando, Florida passed away on November 12, 2020. He was born on January 18, 1948 in New Kensington, Pennsylvania to the late Frank and Florence (Sardone) Juliano.

Jim met his bride, Susan, in high school; and, they both went to different colleges in Pittsburgh while their relationship grew. They married, and lived 25 years of their lives together in Utica, New York.

By trade, Jim was a Program Director at Lockheed Martin, retiring in 2009. He spent 40 years working in the aerospace industry between New York and Florida. He was always interested in the space program, so the first thing he did when they moved to Orlando was to determine which direction to look to view launches from their new home. Jim was thrilled to see many shuttle launches in person. In his free time, he enjoyed building models of the spacecrafts…in between cheering on all his Pennsylvania sports teams! After his retirement, Jim and Susan enjoyed longer cruises and European tours together. Many trips to Italy were a particular thrill for Jim. He spent many enjoyable hours planning their trips and then writing his remembrances of their experiences. And, he had a spreadsheet for everything!

Jim delighted in his family, and although he regretted not being able to visit his children and grandchildren in recent years, he made a great effort to keep up with them electronically.

James Frank Juliano is survived by his wife of 51 years, Susan Trees Juliano; daughter, Laura Chadwick (Thomas) of Vermont; sons, Mark Juliano of Connecticut and Matthew Juliano (Eliza) of Orlando; four beloved grandchildren, Julia and Emma Chadwick, Alec Juliano and Nathan Juliano; and, his brother, Peter C Juliano (Sarah) of Tucson, Arizona.

To the Juliano family, I am deeply sorry to hear of Jim's passing. Jim was my first boss at GE Utica, and I owe him a huge debt of gratitude for the opportunities he provided to me during the time we worked together. Jim was a great guy, a great mentor, and a great friend. He will be missed.

Rest in Peace Jim, I was lucky enough to know Jim as a boss and friend, our condolences and prayers goes out to his family. I started working with Jim way back in 1985 and learned an awful lot from him over the years. I found this picture from back in the day when we had a successful demo on his favorite program, IRST.

I was blessed to have Jim as a friend, boss and mentor during his last 7 years at Lockheed. I learned much from him about some of our key technologies and we worked a couple of pretty insane proposals together. Along the way, we found time to talk about our experiences growing up in Pittsburgh, rooted for our Pittsburgh sports teams (GO STEELERS!) and shared season tickets to the Orlando Magic games during their finals run in the late 2000s. He was a tremendous help to me in my career but more than that, he was just a great guy and brilliant man who was lot of fun to be around.

My wife, Kami, and I send our love, prayers and deepest sympathies to Sue, Matt and the entire Juliano family. He will be missed.

Jim was such a fun guy to be around. Loved our chance get-togethers these last few years watching music together, especially when his son was playing. Enjoyed working with him as well. Always provided valuable insights. God bless.

Jim and Sue have been our neighbors for 25 years.
Over the past few years we haven't seem Jim that often. His occasional walk around the block and to the mailbox were increasingly less frequent. But he always managed to pick up his head and wave. Most recently, we were able to keep in touch via Facebook posts. I will miss the stories he would tell about his travels to Italy.
May you Rest in Peace Dear Neighbor.
Our sincere condolences to Sue, his children and Grandchildren.
Michael, Deborah Inzirillo and Family
