In Memory

Michael "Fuzz" Guzzo - Class of 1969







Michael, Jr., 66 of Hackensack, formerly of Paramus.


We said our goodbyes to Mike as he passed away peacefully after a courageous fight with cancer on January 10th, 2018.  He was surrounded by his family at that time and has now found peace.  Throughout his childhood and even beyond, he was affectionately referred to as "Fuzz" by friends and family.  Mike graduated from Paramus H.S. where he played soccer and trumpet in the band.  He went on to receive his Bachelor's degree from William Paterson University.


Soon thereafter, Mike built a beautiful home in Ringwood, NJ to start a family with former wife Barbara Guzzo.  At that time, he also began his 40-year career selling color and ink for pigment suppliers both domestically and internationally.  Most recently, Mike worked as the Sales Manager for Dominion Colour Corporation and up to the time of his death was dedicated and immersed in his work.


Aside from his successful career in sales, Mike enjoyed rooting for the NY Giants, playing golf, listening to big band jazz music, summers at the beach and pool, going out to eat, and watching his favorite TV shows from when he was a child.  We will remember his sharp and sarcastic wit, his unwavering work ethic, his many favorite sayings, his polished style and his generosity.


Cherished father of Pamela Pullano and her husband Michael of Neptune, NJ and Christina Noval and her husband Joshua of Montclair, NJ.  Proud grandfather of James "JJ" Noval who he lovingly called "little Fuzzy" and Baby Boy Pullano who will arrive in April.  Son to Margaret G Guzzo and dear brother to Patricia Brislin, Robert Guzzo and Joseph Guzzo.  Wonderful companion of Pamela Zecca. Predeceased by his father, Michael V. Guzzo, Sr.

I haven't seen Mike in 49 years but I distinctly remeber him as a really ''good guy'''who would put a smile on your face whenever we did meet or pass in the hall .That may not sound profound, but it is a good lasting memory..  My sincere condolences.
