Licensed Funeral Directors
I was born in Brooklyn, NY, then brought over to Staten Island when I was about a year old. I grew up on the South Shore of Staten Island, attending Mckee High School and then Canton University. After college, I went to the American Academy McAllister Institute for Mortuary School. Family is very dear to me. I count myself blessed to be married to Megan McInerney Cherubini, and we have two wonderful children, who wouldn’t be close to what they are without her love. Megan helps me in so many ways to make our funeral home what it is – more of a service than a business, where taking care of people is the focus of what we do.
