Larry Giuliani of Warwick passed away Thursday, July 9, 2020, with his loving family by his side after surviving a long illness. He celebrated his 83rd birthday with Deborah, his loving wife of 44 years, and their three children and seven grandchildren just four days prior.

Born in the Bronx, on July 5, 1937, he was the son of Filomena (Sette) and Franco Giuliani and grew up in “The Real Little Italy” as he referred to his neighborhood.

Larry held senior banking positions with several institutions during his career, including Assistant Vice-President of Operations for Citibank in New York City, during his 30-plus years with the bank.

He was an active parishioner at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, where he served as elder as well as having been the president and treasurer of the church council through the years.

Larry was also active in his children’s activities, coaching and umpiring baseball. He attended many of his grandchildren’s activities as well. He was a die hard Yankee and Jets fan and had fond memories of his trip to Miami for the Jets one and only Super Bowl victory.

He enjoyed playing poker and his weekly breakfast with many of his close friends. He could always tell a joke and truly enjoyed the company of his friends and family.

Larry is survived by his wife, Deborah; son Brian Giuliani and his wife Carol of Brooklyn Heights; daughter Laura Giuliani-Green and her husband Geoff of Warwick; son Craig Giuliani and his wife Kathryn of Frederick, Maryland; grandsons Marco and Nico Green, Philip, Jacob, Lucas and Leo Giuliani and granddaughter Josephine Giuliani; brother Philip Giuliani and his wife Rosemarie of New Rochelle; sister Emma Sgambati of College Point; nieces Dr. Linda Carmasino, Lori Buckley, Donna Fishkin and Monica Strouphauer; nephews Frank Giuliani and Salvatore Marino; and close childhood friend Jimmy Condes.

A Funeral Mass was held July 14 at St. Stephen RC Church, 75 Sandfordville Road, Warwick.

Interment followed in Warwick Cemetery.
