Julio went to work for Southern New England Telephone Company in 1957, in Hartford, Conn., as a lineman, attended Willimantic State Teachers College at night for ten years. He became an engineer and in 1972, transferred to New England Telephone Company in Manchester, and resided with his family in Chester. Julio worked throughout the New England and Boston areas in various management capacities for many years until his early retirement in June of 1990, with 32 years of service. Upon his retirement, he and his wife relocated to Knox, Maine and he became a business partner in Real Estate for 15 years, and later relocated back to Manchester, in 2006 to be closer to family. He attended St. Catherine's Catholic Church and loved his parish.
Julio loved his family deeply, was proud of his Italian heritage and loved his country, the USA. He was a storyteller and a prankster, as well as an avid sports fan, especially of the Red Sox, Celtics and Patriots. His Catholic faith was very important to him and he was ever-so grateful for his many friends from all walks of life. He was a handyman who could fix almost everything, but more so a hard worker who set very high standards for himself and his family. Julio was a devoted family man, a good provider and a kind and loving father. He had respect for all people and modeled an exceptional example to each one of his children, demonstrating tremendous love and compassion, encouraging his children to carry out his legacy of love in each of their own lives. Julio will be remembered as a rare combination of strength, fortitude, humor, courage, integrity, love and faith.
In the end, Julio left this world a better place for who he was and how he lived. He will be forever missed, loved and revered.
