Mr. Francis “Chick” M. Sirianni, 84, of Whitesboro, passed away on Tuesday, June 2, 2020 at his home, with his loving family by his side. Francis was born in Utica, on October 30, 1935, the son of Philip and Mary (Montecalvo) Sirianni. He was raised and educated locally and was a graduate of Whitesboro High School. In 1957, Francis was united in marriage with Marlene Moschetti at St. Mary of Mt. Carmel Church in Utica. Marlene passed away in 2012. Chick was employed as a fire fighter with the Utica Fire Department, retiring in 1986, after many years of dedicated service. During his time with the UFD, he became one of the first EMT’s in the City of Utica. After retirement, Chick fulfilled a longtime dream when he became owner/operator of the Happy Hobo Saloon in Utica. Chick was a member of the Police and Firemen’s Association, the San Gennaro Club, was a founder of the Paisano Klub and a parishioner of the former St. Anne’s Church in Whitesboro. In his younger years, Chick enjoyed hunting, but his true passion was cooking, whether it be at home or at the fire house. Mr. Sirianni is survived by three sons, Mark Sirianni and his life partner, Regina Talerico of N. Utica, Dean Sirianni and his wife Carol of N. Utica and Jeff Sirianni and his wife Andrea of Whitesboro; seven cherished grandchildren, Sara Sirianni and her fiancée Jacob Schmiel of Guilderland, NY, Paul Sirianni of New Hartford, Philip Sirianni of Albany, Nicholas Sirianni of Remsen, Kristen Sirianni of Nashville, TN, Anthony Sirianni of Whitesboro and Jayden Sirianni of Whitesboro as well as many friends, especially his best buddy, Johnny Nole of FL. Besides his wife, Marlene, Chick was predeceased by many of his brothers on the Utica Fire Department. Due to recent health concern, a private family funeral will be held. Chick will be laid to rest in Mt. Olivet Cemetery in Whitesboro.
