History

Nicholas and Mary Gattozzi founded Gattozzi Funeral Home in the Cleveland, Ohio, neighborhood of Collinwood in 1946. In 1972, under the direction of Nicholas Jr. and Rose Marie Gattozzi, we expanded to our current location, Gattozzi & Son Funeral Home in Chester Township. Funeral directors Jerry Ritola and Jay Jones joined in 1992 and 1997, respectively, bringing more than 60 combined years of experience serving families in need.

In 1999, we became part of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery providers, assuring our clients an even higher level of customer satisfaction backed by attention from a locally-based team.

The Gattozzi family began with a commitment to a high standard of service, and throughout our history we have continued to maintain that same high standard. The team at Gattozzi & Son Funeral Home upholds this heritage and commitment to our community.

Since 2005, many of our customers have taken the time to tell us how we did each year via our Voice of the Customer program. Our star ratings and comments from families come directly from these surveys.

"We were very impressed by the entire staff during my mom's funeral services. We really appreciated Matt's kindness, responsiveness, patience, and assistance as he helped us navigate through the process. He was very thorough and always available to help and answer questions. He really made us feel at ease that everything would be taken care of. The services went very smoothly and we appreciated that we did not have to worry about the services during our time of grieving."

"Gattozzi and Son was very sympathetic and respectful, and took care of everything for us. The deacon from Gattozzi who spoke at the cemetery did such a good job, I almost wish he could have given the sermon at the mass as well."

"The arrangements were made and everything went smoothly for the service and for visitation. In spite of COVID impacting our daily lives our family was very pleased with the many friends who came to pay their respects to their friend, Marvin Dicker. Thank you Gattozzi & Sons!"

"The more DETAILS you afford the Gattozzi Team, the more your expectations will be met....Just ASK, Anything; and If possible, they made me believe anything just might be possible. Their responses were forthright and Helpful Realistic modifications offered....if not. Ask for referrals from your Gattozzi Team, I was out-of-town and their help brought Beautifully Stunning Flowers and a truely Sincere Chaplain for Our Faithful Farewell. KEEP In Touch with Your Funeral coordinator-they never seemed annoyed with my contacting them. You want Mom to 'look like Mom'....give them Actual photos of WHAT YOU HOPE For, the lipstick from her pocketbook, nail polish she preferred. Bet they would have sprayed her perfume---if my mom HAD a favorite."
