Gary A. Guiliani

NIAGARA FALLS — Called to the side of his Heavenly Father on Monday, January 27, 2014, Gary A. Guiliani, was a beloved husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. Born in Niagara, WI on June 18, 1940, he was the son of the late Stephen J. and Helen D. (Wygonik) Guiliani. Gary moved here to Belden Center, in the Town of Niagara, as a child. He attended local schools and was a member of the first graduating class of Niagara Wheatfield High School in 1960. In April of 1964, Gary started work with the Town of Niagara as a Constable and       progressed through the ranks to become the Chief of Police for the Town of Niagara, where he retired following 39 years and 9 months of service.

Gary enjoyed life to the fullest and spent many years going to a family cabin in Ontario, Canada.  He loved to take his kids hunting and fishing. Gary was a member of the LaSalle Sportsmen's Club and volunteered for St. Vincent de Paul Parish (at the St. Leo's worship site), where he and his wife belonged for 51 years. He coached recreational baseball and would later become the Town of Niagara Recreation Commissioner, where he opened a Rec Center in the old Nevada Avenue school. Gary was also an Exempt Fireman of both the Town of Niagara Active Hose  and Lewiston #2 Volunteer Fire Companies.  

The true love of his life came to him in marriage on June 27, 1964. Gary married his high school sweetheart, the former Margaret A. Lively, and raised four children. In addition to his loving wife of 49 years, Gary is survived by three sons, Stephen (Sally Gilbert) Guiliani, Christopher (Natalie Scrivani) Guiliani and Gary (Lynn Conrad) Guiliani; one daughter, Beth (John) Gatto; five grandsons, Stephen, Christopher, Mark and Joshua Guiliani and Dillon Gatto; five granddaughters, Ashley (Brad) Smith and Brittany, Melissa and Rebecca Guiliani and Miranda Gatto and two great-grandchildren, Natalie and Connor Mollosky.
