A funeral mass took place Dec. 21 at Our Lady of Grace R.C. Church, Hoboken, for Fulvio Giudici, 86. Husband, father, and grandfather, he passed away Dec. 16 at his home in Freehold. Fulvio was the son of Luigi and Lucia Giudici of Pirano d’Istria, where he was born. He arrived in the U.S. in 1959 as a refugee and settled with his family in Hoboken in 1960. For fifty-one years, Fulvio was active in the Hoboken community. His initial employment in the U.S. was working in construction. A former boat builder and sailor, he worked along the New York harbor waterfront as a marine carpenter in the longshoreman’s union. When modernization decreased harbor labor demand, he took the opportunity to renew his childhood passion for drawing. Fulvio became a well-known, self-taught local artist and spent many years helping artists hone their craft at the Hoboken Adult School in the Public Library. He was also a long-time parishioner of Our Lady of Grace Roman Catholic Church in Hoboken and member of the Stevens Institute of Technology Parents’ Association. He is survived by his wife of 58 years, Anna Giudici; his sons, Giuliano and Mario, their wives, Rebecca and Donna, and granddaughters Bianca and Sophia. Services arranged by the Lawton-Turso Funeral Home, Hoboken.
