George was born in Upper Darby, PA in the summer of 1947 to Alterisio, “Al,” and Charlotte DiJulio. The family moved to Texas for Al to pursue his dream of engineering and creating golf clubs for The Ben Hogan Company. This is where George’s passion for the game of golf began. After high school George played golf at North Texas before moving to Colorado to explore the state with his brother, Charlie DiJulio. In Colorado, George fell in love with breaking, training, and riding horses over the continental divide with his best friends who became life long brothers. Playing music with his brother and friends at “The Dome” were cherished moments that he shared with people the rest of his life. George eventually came down from the mountains to pursue his golf career and start a family. He spent 40 years in the PGA spanning half dozen golf courses before ending his career at Lake Sweetwater Municipal Golf Course. This is where he met his very special wife, Rosa, who was with him until the end. George DiJulio will forever be known as a generous man with a great big heart, who would give a stranger the shirt off his back and do anything for a laugh.
George is survived by his wife, Rosa Johnson, his three sons; Jake DiJulio, Shane DiJulio, Dylan DiJulio, his daughter, Savannah DiJulio, and his grand children; Britney DiJulio, Kaelan DiJulio, Haden DiJulio, Dalton DiJulio, Kyler DiJulio, Weston DiJulio, and Reece DiJulio.
