History & Staff

We have years of experience caring for families, from all walks of life. Each family comes to us because they know we are leaders in our profession, dedicated to excellence in service, and have the highest integrity.

Our History

Our History

Our History, Integrity, Compassion and Trust… We take these words seriously.  Anthony J. Morizzo and Daniel M. Morizzo, second generation funeral directors, now along with Anthony’s son, Ross A. Morizzo, continue to carry the same traditions their Father and Grandfather, Daniel A. Morizzo, instilled in them.  That same motto “a friend in need is a friend indeed,” continues not only in the operation of the funeral home but also in their hearts.

As a family owned and operated business, we take great pride in the services we offer to the families in our community.  We are more than caretakers, we are your neighbors and friends.  We are privileged to be a part of this community; and your family.  We provide unparalleled guidance, unmatched care and unwavering support for the families we serve.
