Another of the promising young business me which Italy has contributed to Utica is Frank A. Dellecese,
a well known building contractor of the city. He was born in Italy on the 16th of November, 1884, and is a son
of Paolo and Jessenda Dellecese.
Frank A. Dellecese was educated in the common schools of Italy and America, emigrating to the United States with
his parents in 1893 and locating in New York. They came to Utica on the 5th of December, 1905, from Providence,
Rhode Island, where they had been for two years, and have ever since continued to reside here. Mr. Dellecese makes
a specialty of erecting commercial and flat buildings and has been awarded the contracts of a number of fine structures.
His offices and yard are located at the corner of Jay and Morehead streets.
