Frank Castelli


Frank E. Castelli, 81, of Holland, an accomplished chef, died Tuesday in Holy Redeemer Hospital, Meadowbrook.  Castelli, formerly of Hershey and Harrisburg, had been a certified executive chef and a mentor to many culinary professionals in the hotel industry.

He was a founding member of the Central Pennsylvania Chefs Association and a past president of the Delaware Valley Chefs Association.

“Frank Castelli was a man with a very big heart and very proud of the culinary profession,” said Kathy Salemno, a former protégé.

“He was a true professional,” Salemno said, “always lending a hand with the local chef chapter dinners and being a mentor to many a culinary apprentice.

“Frank was always there.  We talked many times about the good old days and the start of the acceptance of women in the culinary profession.  He helped me get a scholarship to the Culinary Institute.

“I will surely miss him.  He was a great mentor and grandfather image to me.”

Castelli was a member of the American Culinary Federation and an honorary life member of its Chicago Chefs of Cuisine Association; a member of the American Academy of Chefs; and an honorary life member of the Greater Lehigh Valley Chefs Association and Les Amis d’Escoffier Society of Chicago. 

He was an Army veteran of World War II and a member of St. Bede the Venerable Roman Catholic Church and the British Air Depot 2 Association.

Surviving are his wife, Margie E. Glass Castelli; a daughter, Marcia L. Guzauskas of Gaithersburg, Md; a son, Gregory E. of Sellersville; a brother, Sistillio P. of Hershey; and four grandchildren.
