Norman Anthony Juliano passed away peacefully on March 24, 2022 in Canton, Georgia after a long battle with dementia.
Norman was born in Birmingham, Alabama on April 6, 1943 to Jesse and Virginia Giuliano. He grew up in Ensley, known to the locals as Little Italy. He was one of nine children.
At the age of twenty, he met the beautiful Carolyn Marie George. They were married on May 5, 1965. In 1966, they welcomed the birth of their first son, Jasper (Jay) followed by the birth of their second son, Joseph, in 1970.
Norman was a loving care giver for Joe alongside Carolyn and Jay. He never met a grill or barbeque he didn’t like, was known for his killer ribs and his love of Alabama football.
Many remember Norman through his Homewood and Pelham Italian restaurants, Juliano’s. With a strong love for people and his Sicilian heritage, you would find him working feverishly, along with his family, serving up incredible pizzas and Italian favorites.
But mostly, he will be remembered for his music. A talented and accomplished guitarist and songwriter, Norman delighted family, friends and audiences with his love for song. Whether it was a wedding, an anniversary, a club gig or any celebration suited for amazing music—you would find Norman and his band, Tuxedo Junction, at the forefront.
Norman Juliano leaves behind a legacy of music, a strong love for friends and family and many memories filled with his entertaining life stories.
