Dear Mr. DeSando,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
The Federal Government does not ordinarily create or maintain birth, death, marriage or divorce records. Such records are made and kept by State and local governments rather than the National Archives. Therefore, we suggest that you contact the New York City Municipal Archives to request a copy of his death certificate.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!

To see a transcribed version of his death certificate go to familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:2W9T-LW5
It does not have the cause of death listed.
He is listed Josph Blasea De Le'ry
He died in Manhattan.
the certificate number is 4728
When Family History Centers reopen, you can view a copy of the original certificate or you can order a copy from the NYC Records & Information Services Office https://www1.nyc.gov/site/records/about/overview.page
