Obituary of Frank A. Delello

Frank A. Delello, Jr., 98, passed away on Tuesday, August 14, 2018 at his home in Bainbridge.

He was born on October 28, 1919 in Tunnel, NY, the youngest of Frank and Frances (Caracciolo) Delello's eight children. Soon after a house fire in 1928, the family moved to Bainbridge. After attending Bainbridge Central School, Frank found employment at the Scintilla Magneto Company in Sidney where he remained for 41 years, not missing a single day due to illness. On June 6, 1941, he married Jessie Jeanne Hamlin at St. John's Catholic Church in Bainbridge. She predeceased him on June 9, 2003.

World War II took the first four years of his marriage. He returned home in 1945 after having seen much of the heaviest combat of the war, including the D-Day Invasion at Normandy and The Battle of the Bulge. For his service to his country, he received several citations, including a Bronze Star and the French Legion of Honor.

Besides his devotion to his family, Frank enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping and countless games of pinochle with family and friends. He was a member of the American Legion, the Bainbridge Sportsman's Club and past president of the Greenlawn Cemetery Association.

Besides his parents, he is predeceased by siblings Patsy (Rose) Delello, Pheal Delello, Dominick (Carmella) Delello, Bastine (Florence) DeLello, Diane (John) Zuccarelli, Lucy (Larry) Argiro, and Joe (Tommy) Delello.

He is survived by daughter Pamela Delello of Lakeland, FL; son Barry (Mary) Delello of Winter Park, FL; granddaughter Allison (Forrest) Vaughn and great-granddaughters Carli Vaughn and Katelyn Vaughn of Orange City, FL; and grandson Matthew Delello (Robbie Sparrow) of Casselberry, FL.

He is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews and cousins, as well as special cousin Susan Caracciolo-Pondolfino, and special friends, Ren and Terry Johnson. Our heartfelt appreciation for the countless hours spent by Susan, Ren and Terry looking after Dad cannot be overstated.

Calling hours will be at C.H. Landers Funeral Chapel, 21 Main Street, Sidney on Friday, August 24 from 6-8 PM

Funeral Services are scheduled for St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church, 34 South Main Street, Bainbridge on Saturday, August 25 from at 11:00 AM. Interment immediately following at Greenlawn Cemetery in Bainbridge.
