Syracuse, NY - July 22, 2011

SYRACUSE, N.Y.  – Farone & Son Funeral Home, a proud Dignity Memorial® provider, 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. Our family would also like to express our appreciation to those families we have served throughout the generations for placing their trust in the Farone family. We look forward to continuing to meet their needs and exceed their expectations.”

Members of the media are invited to attend the 100th anniversary celebration private event at 2 p.m. on Saturday, July 30, at Borio’s Restaurant in Cicero. It was approximately 50 years ago that the Farone & Son family held a similar celebration at the same location.

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.

In 1988, Farone & Son Funeral Home joined the Dignity Memorial network of funeral providers.
