David Juliano of New Rochelle, New York, passed away peacefully at home on Monday, June 29th, 2020 surrounded by his loving family. He was 59 years old. Born in New York City to John and Dolores Juliano, David was the youngest of 3 children. He was raised in the Throggs Neck area of the Bronx before moving to Pelham Manor. He attended St. Frances De Chantal School in the Bronx and Our Lady of Perpetual Help School in Pelham Manor before graduating from Salesian High School in 1979. After graduating high school, David studied business at Iona College. His degree served him well when he started Juliano’s Caterers in New Rochelle with his brother John. Juliano’s celebrated its 34th year in business this past April.
David had a diverse interest in sports. As an avid golfer, he was a member of Leewood Country Club for many years. He played softball for most of his life in both New Rochelle and Pelham leagues. Like his mother Dolores, he was a die-hard Mets, Nets, Jets and Islanders fan. He loved game shows, attending concerts, Broadway shows and traveling, but most of all he loved spending time with his family, friends and dogs—especially Amber.
David will be remembered as a witty, humorous, honest and caring gentleman. His sons remember him as thoughtful, composed, generous, and a wonderful father. He is survived by his wife Sandy, his children Justin, David and Evan, his step children Paul (Julia) Antonioli, Nicole (Richard) Laecca, his grandchildren Alana, Xavier, Dominic and Maya, his father John Juliano Sr. and his brother John Juliano Jr. He is predeceased by his mother Dolores Juliano and his brother Steven Juliano.
