There will be no formal services for Julius, but the family asks that you remember him in your own special way. Cruz Family Funeral Home and Cremation Service of Osceola has been entrusted with his care.
Julius was employed in the construction industry for many years. He owned “Fleming Construction” and specialized in the installation of windows. Those he built for received excellent service and Julius was proud of his work and the attention to detail he put into his jobs. He later put his knowledge of construction to good use while working for Lowe’s prior to his retirement in 2009.
In his spare time, Julius enjoyed spending time outdoors camping with his family, fishing and hunting. He also had a fondness for watching Westerns on TV and recently had the opportunity to travel to Georgia with Linda to visit family and friends.
