Robert J. Guliano, Sr. “Bob”, 75, of Manchester, CT, beloved husband of Carol (Kacinski) Guliano, passed away on Wednesday, March 18, 2020, at home which was a total shock to all.  

He was born in Providence, RI, son of the late Cosmo Guliano and Ruth (Mockler) Guliano.  Bob graduated from Manchester High School in 1962, received an Associate’s degree from Manchester Community College, graduated with the 108th class of the FBI National Academy, and retired from the Manchester Police Department in January of 1999 after more than 30 years.  He was also a six-year veteran of the United States Army. He was an avid reader, especially history books, and a blood-pressure-raising sports enthusiast that loved UConn, the Patriots, the Red Sox, and NASCAR.  He loved listening to records and discussing music, and reading history books, and collecting practically everything imaginable. His most favorite time was when the family would get together, each summer at the beach and he would be “watching the water” at Point O’ Woods. He was often found spoiling his dogs, Charlie and Dexter, while hinting at getting more, to the delight of his wife (Not!).

Besides his wife, he is survived by his three children; Rob Guliano and his wife Rachel, Debbie Foran and her husband Jeff, and Mike Guliano and his wife Melissa.  He leaves behind seven loving grandchildren, Walker and Anthony Guliano, Justin, Jocelyn, and Jianna Foran and Braden and Cameron Guliano. Bob was predeceased by his best friend and brother, Barry Guliano. He also leaves behind his sister in law, Denise and his two special nieces, Jennifer Guliano and Michelle (Guliano) and her husband Jim Riley.  

Memorial donations may be made “In Memory of Bob Guliano” to the National Humane Society or the charity of your choice.
