History

Established in 1929, the Cusimano & Russo Funeral Home has been serving the families of Brooklyn with dignity and compassion for 88 years. Throughout the years, families have trusted us to provide exactly what they need to honor their loved ones with memorial services that uniquely reflect their lives.

A Brooklyn funeral home all along

Originally in the South Brooklyn-Carroll Gardens section of Brooklyn, the current location was established in 1948 to serve the growing population of the Gravesend/Bensonhurst area of Brooklyn. The Spanish style of architecture of our funeral home lends itself to be a place of great comfort, consolation and solace for the many families we have been privileged to serve.

Dignity, compassion and respect

Under the direction of our managers, Michael G. Rizzotto and John LaGreca, the time-honored tradition endures of treating each family as our own—with dignity, compassion and respect. It is our promise, now and always.

"Cusimano & Russo Funeral Home provided my family with outstanding service and care. I had to make funeral arrangements from out of state and called Cusimano Funeral Home. I was a bit nervous with having to coordinate timing, services etc between 2 states and 2 funeral homes(in Maryland and NY). The funeral director, Michael Rizzotto called me bac

k quickly. He noted the necessary information and carefully guided me through the fine details. Michael went above and beyond to be available every time I called with a question. Michael is very professional and expertly navigates through the fine details with a calm presence. His staff, Robyn, Elizabeth and Mary were all very kind, eager to help and carefully worked on time sensitive material. Robyn worked on a custom prayer card for hours on a Sunday. She also contacted me a week after the funeral to just follow up. Mary and Elizabeth were so sweet on the phone and provided me with all the information I needed. The team provided an exceptional level of attention and care!"
