Obituary

George Gulinello, age 58, passed away suddenly on Monday, March 12, 2018 in his North Easton, Massachusetts home. Born in Boston, Massachusetts on April 27, 1959, he was the son of George F. and Arcangela M. (Arena) Gulinello. He spent his early years in South Boston before his family settled into their home in Dorchester. George graduated from Boston Latin School with the Class of 1977 and continued his education at Bentley College, earning his Associate Degree with a focus in accounting.

After graduation, George found work with the Morse Shoe Company in Canton and began taking night classes at Suffolk University. He remained with the shoe company when it became the J. Baker Shoe Company; however in 1997, he took a job with Shaw's Supermarket, working in the Tax Department. In 2005, George returned to the building where his working career began, taking a position with Casual Male in Canton, now DXL, filling the role of Tax Manager. While at DXL, George was a member of the Core Values Recognition Committee and was a fearless fundraiser for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Throughout his life, George was an avid sports fan. He held season tickets for the Boston Red Sox and took annual trips to watch spring training with his father. In addition, he was a previous season ticket holder for the Boston Celtics, back when they played in the original Boston Garden. George also loved college basketball and looked forward to March Madness every year, often attending Big East games at Madison Square Garden. No one knew sports statistics better than George, and he used his knowledge to assist him with his rotisserie baseball league for almost 30 years.

George was a cheerful and optimistic man, whose gentle nature won him the hearts of all that knew him. His family and friends meant the world to him and he will be sorely missed.

Beloved son of Arcangela (Arena) Gulinello of Boston and the late George Gulinello.
He was the adored brother of Marie Gulinello of Boston and Joan Gulinello and her husband Dennis Hart of Boston and Norfolk.
George was the proud and cherished uncle of Sarah Hart McLaughlin and her husband Thomas of Westwood and the proud and cherished godfather and uncle of Paul Gulinello Hart and Joanna Schoen of Brookline.
He was the doting great uncle of Robert P. McLaughlin of Westwood.
Also survived by many devoted friends, colleagues and former colleagues, aunts, uncles, and cousins.
