Joseph “Joe” Vincent Gugliuzza, 87, of Lewes, passed away Saturday, June 14, 2014, at Beebe Healthcare, Lewes. He was born in Derby Conn., March 25, 1927, son of the late Joseph V. and Florence (Scarpa) Gugliuzza.
Mr. Gugliuzza was a veteran who proudly served in the U.S. Army. Joe attended the Bullard-Havens Technical School in Bridgeport, Conn., concentrating his studies on publication and printing. He spent his career in the printing industry as a production manager for many years with several companies, always enjoying his work and the friendships he cultivated during his career.
He was an avid woodworker, golfer and enjoyed spending great times with his family. He was also a Scoutmaster for nearly 20 years. Joe was a familiar face to his friends in his community. His real passion was his wife “Peggy” whom he married Dec., 27, 1952. For Peggy “every day with Joe was like Christmas; it may not have been the right size or color, but it all had meaning at the end of the day.”
Mr. Gugliuzza is survived by his loving wife of 61 years, Margaret “Peggy” (Duley) Gugliuzza; beloved three sons: Mark Gugliuzza and wife Katherine, Douglas Gugliuzza and Bruce Gugliuzza and wife Melanie; a daughter Peggy Ramsey and husband Tom; a brother Robert Gugliuzza; a daughter-in-law Kathleen Gugliuzza; seven grandchildren; six great-grandchildren and many other family members.
