Farone & Son Funeral Home celebrates its 100th anniversary of providing quality funeral service to generations of families in the Syracuse area this year.
“Our family has been honored to serve families in the Syracuse area for 100 years,” said Farone & Son general manager Joseph Farone. “Along with my father and sister, we are committed to building on the tradition my great-grandfather and grandfather established and are dedicated to serving New York families as we have for generations with compassion and dignity.”
Joseph Farone, Sr. opened the funeral home in 1911 on State Street. In 1947, Joseph Farone, Sr. and son Joseph Jr. moved the funeral home to James Street. Patrick and Anthony Farone joined their father, Joseph Jr. in the family business in 1967. Anthony Farone, along with his father Joseph Jr., built a new 17,000 square foot facility on Park Street in 1975, which is where Farone & Son Funeral Home now resides. In the late 1980s, Marie Farone and her brother, Joseph, joined their father, Anthony, in the family business. In 1988, Farone & Son Funeral Home joined the Dignity Memorial network of funeral providers. Marie and Joseph, who represent the fourth generation of Farone funeral directors, are still managing the business along with their father Anthony, who also continues to be hands on in serving the families in the Syracuse area.
