In 1917, Italian immigrant Louis E. Richards founded a funeral home in Bridgeport, Connecticut, based on compassionate service, sincerity and a dedication to helping families in their time of need. His business was purchased in the 1950s by the late Salvatore S. Spadaccino, who established the Richards-Spadaccino Funeral Home. As the Spadaccino family grew, the name was changed to S. Spadaccino and Sons and became one of the most respected funeral firms in the greater Bridgeport area.

Funerals and memorials for today's families

The years have passed and the names of our funeral home have changed, but the age-old traditions that our business was founded upon have endured. At Spadaccino and Leo P. Gallagher and Son Community Funeral Home, serving families is still our primary focus. It is comforting to know that you can still trust us to be part of your family’s tradition, just as we have been for generations in the past.
