John V. Iuliano

May 16, 1951 ~ September 16, 2019 (age 68)


John Vincent Iuliano, 68, of Naples, FL and formerly of Glastonbury, CT passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on Monday, September 16, 2019, at home and in the company of family.

John was born May 16, 1951, in Manchester, CT, and became the first in his family to attend college. After graduation from East Catholic High School and Bryant College, he would later go on to earn advanced degrees from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He led an impressive career as a sales executive, and successfully developed teams across numerous organizations. Throughout his career, he remained a steadfast husband and father who had a profoundly positive impact on family and friends alike. He confidently faced all challenges and won a midlife battle against cancer over the course of multiple years. In retirement, he fully dedicated himself to family and grandchildren, doing what he loved most.

He is survived by his devoted wife and best friend of 42 years Karen (Vater) Iuliano of Naples; his two beloved children, Kristen L. (Iuliano) Gould and her husband, Mark, of Marvin, NC and John R. Iuliano and his wife, Laurie, of Dedham, MA; and two grandchildren, John and James Iuliano of Dedham. He is preceded in death by Mother, Julia A. (Luccardi) Iuliano and Father, John J. Iuliano, owners and operators of Iuliano's Bakery in Manchester, through 1976, where he was raised.
