ZULLO, FRED MICHAEL, 57, of Barre, Vt., and Claremont, N.H., died tragically, February 19, at his Tucson, Ariz., winter retreat. He was born May 5, 1956, in Camp Lejeune, N.C., and had resided in Barre for nearly 25 years. He previously lived in New Hampshire for nearly 20 years, in addition to briefly residing in Florida and Maine. He was a graduate of Stevens High School in Claremont, N.H., and Norwich University in Northfield, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in accounting. He served in the U.S. Navy from the period of Jan. 19, 1977, until his honorable discharge, Aug. 27, 1980. In the field of aviation electronics, he attained a rank of service technician third class. In his youth, he was a former Cub Scout and then a Boy Scout member of Troop 38, reaching a rank of second class. As an adult, he was an avid sportsman in hunting and fly-fishing, tying many of his own unique dry flies. Later in life, Mr. Zullo pursued the specialty of tax filings and preparation, assisting several small local Vermont businesses, select individuals and providing community service to those in need of tax assistance in unison with his father, Rocco A. Zullo. He is survived by his father, Rocco Zullo, of Claremont, N.H.; his stepdaughter, Lisa Carlton, of Cumberland, R.I.; and his siblings, Tony Zullo, of North Kingstown, R.I., Janet Zullo, of Hartland, Vt., Jennifer Zullo, of Ridgeville, S.C., Patrick Zullo, of Deering, N.H., and Alexandra Zullo, of Claremont, N.H.; and six nieces and nephews that he adored. The Lord knows he will be missed by so many of us for his kind nature and gentle touch, thus the nickname “Golden Boy.” It is hard to comprehend a world without Fred Michael, and so it seems that he will always be among us in spirit.
