Serving in United States Air Force in Japan and Korea and received the Korean service medal. After his discharge, Julius spent his working years with the Ford Motor company in Ohio.
Julius was a man with many stories - most of them true. The kind of stories that made you smile. Julius was a giving and caring man. Most evident in his generosity to his family and to the charities he cared so deeply about; St. Judes Children’s Hospital, and the Kidney Research Foundation.
Julius is survived by his nephews, James R Noon Jr (Arlene), Gary Cadez (Mary), John Milik, Ron Kernich and his niece, Joni Pusz (Ron). Also, several great and great great nieces and nephews.
Julius was also blessed with his good buddy Mike Sebetich who sadly passed away earlier this year.
Julius always said “ I always thought I’d live to be 95 and then just go.” He almost made it.
