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.

History

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.

Ratings & Reviews

Verified Customer Reviews

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.

"The service that our family received was beyond extraordinary. Our father passed a little over 2 years ago. He requested Spadaccino & Gallagher specifically. We followed his wishes and were introduced to Vicki Martin. Since we'd never had to prepare a funeral before, her guidance helped us through a very trying time. We connected with her instantly and we felt her as part of our family. When our mother recently passed, Vicki came to the rescue again. Mom passed in Florida and we had to get her back up to Monroe. One call did it all. Vicki had everything perfect. Mom was beautiful and even had her nails done! The rest of the staff also did a tremendous job. We never felt rushed, crowded or stressed. I can say for certain that we highly recommend Spadaccino & Gallagher for your loved one."

"We all felt like Vicky was basically at our beck and call if we needed. She handled everything perfectly from the moment we first spoke to the last. She was helpful from going over the contracts in layman's terms, picking out arrangements, to even help wording the obituary. Thank you!"
