  1. Sorry to hear of the passing of my cousin Jay, I am sure he is with mom and dad and our Lord. I have really fond memories of Jay – family trips out to the farm, fishing with him and brother Dan, family get togethers, they seem so long ago, but the memories remain. I can recall the many times at Lazar & Sons in Grasso Plaza that we went next door to the bakery and got pig-in-the-blankets for lunch, heated them up in the oh so cool Microwave! Jay really could draw, he used to sketch scary drawings of The Wolfman, they were great. Rest in peace Jay.

    • Thank you George. I remember so many Giulvezan memories. Such as your house in Forest Haven with the beautiful picture windows looking out to the back. First time microwave usage was so cool……

  2. RIP cousin Jay – It broke my heart to hear you passed, but I will cherish my memories of you forever. You made me laugh and smile every time we saw each other. Your memory will surely bring those smiles to many for a long time to come. Hugs and love…

  3. I knew and worked with Jay on the steam-powered, narrow-gauge railroad at Six Flags over Mid-America (SFOMA) in 1972. I Loved driving the train and laughed much of the day whenever I had the pleasure of working with Jay. Those memories are still vivid, even in my dotage. Open that throttle Jay, there are no speed limits for you buddy. May he rest in God’s eternal peace.

  4. John was a resident at the same apartment building as me. He was always so kind, nice and a good sense of humor. I was so sorry to hear of his passing. Please accept my sympathy for your loss.

  5. I was shocked to hear this sad news. I have many great memories of Jay — from Six Flags, of course, and then at Columbia at the University of Missouri. In fact, in the fall of 1974, Jay and I, along with two other guys, rented a decrepit bungalow just north of downtown. It was advertised as “3 bdrm. 1 bath.” there were only two bedrooms, however. The first 2-3 weeks of the fall semester, I don’t think Jay and I together spent more than 1 hour attending classes. Instead we became instant homebuilders, somehow putting up studs and drywall, laying flooring and doing some not-to-code electrical work to create one large bedroom in the dank basement. I was amazed at Jay’s building skills, and the two of us shared that bedroom that year. I knew Jay, of course, from Six Flags, but rooming that year gave me a broader understanding and appreciation for him. He was a great roommate, and we had many fun times. Also, I didn’t know how to cook and, once again, Jay surprised me by teaching me the fundamentals — lessons I still follow today. I didn’t connect with Jay after college and I moved to Atlanta, but he’s someone who is always a familiar memory. My deepest condolences to the family on his passing.


  6. I am so sorry to hear of Jay’s passing. I lived with Jay at MIZZOU where we had a blast in 1975 together. I also lived with Jay in an apartment in Creve Coeur before he moved to Texas. I wish I could have connected during the last few years.. May he rest in peace.
