Personalized funeral care

Lobby at Spadaccino and Leo P. Gallagher & Son Community Funeral HomeFrom our funeral planning specialists who work with families before their immediate need, to our office associates and funeral directors who have an unwavering commitment to serving families with dignity before, during and after a loss, each of us strive to provide the highest possible level of service.

At Spadaccino and Leo P. Gallagher and Son Community Funeral Home, we believe a memorial service should be as unique as the person it honors. In fact, we take great pride in creating perfectly personalized services that capture the essence of you or your loved one. We find inspiration almost anywhere—in a song, a hobby, a trademark style, a defining philosophy or a lifelong passion—and turn that into a memorial service filled with thoughtful and meaningful details.

You’ll find there's no limit to the special tribute we can create, so your life—or the life of someone you love—is well celebrated.

In addition, we host community events annually in honor of our veterans and work closely with local veterans organizations. With respect, integrity and dignity, we will walk you through the steps of creating a veteran’s memorial service that truly honors the life and sacrifice of your loved one.

We care about Monroe

We support Project Warmth of Monroe, the Race4Chase Kid's Community Triathlon and Sprint for Monroe along with several local golf tournaments. Each October, we donate pumpkins to our town's schools and organizations.

Our connection with our local high school includes support of the Pi Day 5K, the post-Prom event and the Masuk High School Mock Crash. We also fund The Spadaccino and Leo P.

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.

"Being a mother that had to lay their son to rest and the anguish of losing him at the hand of his childhood friend at such a young age during COVID-19, Vicky and Wendy were amazing, compassionate, caring, accommodating and responsive. They took an incredibly difficult time in my life and ensured me that us and my sons earthly shell would be taken care of with great respect and dignity. They followed through on all their promises and then some. I would recommend your funeral home Vicky and Wendy to anyone in need. Thank you for all you have done for my son Nicky and our family. I love you all dearly. Michele Krasowski (Nicky Eisele's mom)"

"Faced with so many uncertainties during the pandemic. I was so thankful for our Director Melissa Fahey who gave me the attention, caring and guidance needed to fulfill my dads final wishes. It was done with the full caring, compassion,respect and dignity he deserved. I was reminded in my time with Melissa that she was an unsung hero. People were passing away daily and she made me feel like my dad was the most important person at this time. Thank you for the warm embrace in the most difficult of times!!"
