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.
