    Funeral Director

    After beginning his funeral career as a receptionist at the age of 18, Eric realized his desire to pursue a career as a funeral director. While studying at Nassau Community College and learning from his father and other well-seasoned funeral directors, Eric soaked in as much knowledge about the funeral industry as possible. To him, it is a true honor to help families in one of the most difficult times of their lives.

    Growing up on the south shore of Eastern Long Island, he developed a love for the water and took up hobbies including fishing and kayaking in the Moriches Inlet. In his free time, Eric also enjoys working on his jeep, off-roading, writing music with his band and playing guitar. He currently lives in Manorville, New York, where he is an active member of the community.
