He is loved by many cousins, nieces, and nephews.

Jules worked in the 45” maintenance department of USS Homestead Steel Mill, retired as a truck driver from Institutional Linen Service. His love of music is what brought him and Mary Cay together at the Bethel Dances every Sunday. He continued to enjoy dancing with her whenever he could get the chance, sitting on the porch listening to the Oldies and Hungarian music, watching the Pittsburgh Steelers, Pirates, Penguins, Pitt football, and spending time with his grandchildren.
