Charles Julieano 92, formerly of 105 Canal St. Lee died Monday March 23, 2015 at Fairview Commons Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Great Barrington, Mass.
Born in Lee, Mass., on March 3, 1923, he was the son of Augustino and Victoria Monachina Julieano. Charles was a resident of Lee until November 2010. Charles worked for the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad for many years and later as a laborer for the Town of Lee Department of Public Works.
Charles enjoyed the outdoors. He loved hunting and fishing until age 90 with his nephews and nieces at Prospect Lake Park Campground, where both his niece and nephew each had a seasonal site allowing him many opportunities to enjoy the outdoors and great picnics with them.
Charles also had a passion for gardening, starting his plants from seed, even at the nursing home and sharing them with friends and family. His greatest joy was being a New York Yankees fan.
Charles is survived by his brother, Ralph, sister-in-law Judy, beloved niece and longtime caregiver Judy Heath and her companion Lee Soules; beloved nephews Ralph Julieano and Ernest Frink and his wife Marilyn; his beloved great nieces Kristen Heath, Grace and Evelyn Julieano, Cindy Fuller and Christine Palmer and many other nephews and nieces. He also leaves his Fairview Commons family including “best friend” Robbin Campetti, Chris Shaw, David Gordineer, his caregivers and his friend and Chaplain Reverend Richard Hayes with whom he enjoyed weekly musical visits. Charles was predeceased by brothers Frank and James Julieano, sisters Mamie Julieano, Dorothy Armstrong, Mabel Winters and Mary Meyers.
