and has met with a goodly measure of success on account of his pleasing address and thorough business qualifications,
is a native of Italy. He was born at Macchia, April 27, 1879, and is a son of George Hopple, a mason contractor
who came to America with his family in 1887 and located in Madison county, New York.
Mr. Hopple of this sketch arrived in New York state with his parents at the age of eight years. He attended school
for a short time in his native city before coming to this country and after arriving in Madison county continued
his studies in the public schools. He came to Utica in 1898 and entered the Utica School of Commerce, from which
he was regularly graduated. In 1901 he went to Schenectady, New York, and there became identified with the offices
of the General Electric Company, continuing in the employ of that company until 1903. After spending four months
abroad on a business trip he returned to Utica and engaged as a building contractor. In 1905 he began in the real
estate business in this city and showed a judgment and an adaptability to his vocation which have made his name
favorably known to a large circle of purchasers and investors. He is now one of the well established real estate
men of the city.

Society when he removed to Utica. Politically he supports the republican party. He has taken an active part in
politics and evinces the interest of a patriotic citizen in public affairs. He and his wife are members of Mount
Carmel Roman Catholic church. Although Mr. Hopple is a young man, he has made great progress in business and by
his honorable methods has gained the confidence and respect of the best business men of the city. Among his associates
he is highly popular and there are few of his age anywhere who can look forward more confidently to a prosperous
and useful career.
