(1927 - 2019)
Guido worked at Buck, Seifert and Jost from 1953 until 2011. During his 58 year career at BS&J, he was a structural designer, engineer, project engineer, responsible professional engineer, and Director and Chief Engineer for the design of water and wastewater treatment plants, transmission and collection systems, and pumping stations throughout New York, New Jersey, Virginia and Puerto Rico. He received the AWWA NJ Section Fuller Award in 2011 in recognition of his distinguished service, sound engineering skill and constructive leadership in the water supply field.
Guido was an active AWWA NJ member for many years, and was a Fuller Awardee, mentor, guiding force, loving father and friend. He and his immediate (and extended!) family have continued to be leaders in the professional engineering field and in the NJ Section. He will be greatly missed.
He is survived by his wife Erna, sons Ron and Paul and their spouses Joni and Liz, and five grandchildren: Bridgette, Brittina, Paul Jr, Christopher, and Kurt.
Relatives and friends are invited to a visitation for Guido on Friday June 7, from 4:00 - 8:00 pm at Becker Funeral Home in Westwood, NJ, and to the funeral service on Saturday June 8, from 9:30 am - 10:30 am. More details here.
