Our founding father Leone Pavone Sr. began his career in funeral service in 1925. He married Louise and she also joined the family funeral business. They had many offices throughout the tri state area serving families of all denominations and faiths. They parented three sons of whom one followed in the family tradition John Pavone Sr. He truly loved funeral service, but also had an incredible eye for building and designing funeral homes that were a comfort to those they served. He graduated from the prestigious Renouard School of Funeral Service in 1951 which was located in New York, New York. He married Gloria who joined him assisting him with daily operation of the family business. John passed away in 1985 and his son Michael Pavone took over operation of the family business. Michael graduated from the American Academy of Mc Allister Institute for Funeral Service in 1980. He was the recipient of the New York State award, a prestigious honor awarded to one student by the faculty of the American Academy of McAllister Institute of Funeral Service and his fellow students as the student who best typified the highest ideals of the Funeral Service profession. Michael is licensed in New York and New Jersey. He has dedicated himself to serving countless families in their time of need. He currently manages and owns the funeral home and is an integral part in its daily operation along with his wife Camille and their daughters Angelica and Briana.
Our new facility is dedicated to the memory of our beloved father and grandfather John Pavone Sr. 1923-1985. He was a dedicated man who cared for his family, his neighbors and the communities he served selflessly. One of the most important things he did was to teach us how important it is to receive and repay the trust our neighbors place in us. This is how Dedication of service begins and is how Tradition comes to Life.
