Personalized funerals in Port Dickinson

Our mission is to help families create personalized funerals and memorial services. This approach keeps us open to traditional religious rites as well as contemporary gatherings that deeply reflect a person's life. That means that whether you want a basic cremation with ashes scattered in a personally meaningful place, a funeral in our chapel or a modern celebration of life, we are happy to deliver.

Want an afternoon ice cream social? Or maybe an evening wine-and-cheese gathering is a better fit? We'll work with a 3rd-party caterer to make these creative options a reality. Were you thinking about a disco funeral complete with a glitter ball and a dance contest? If you can imagine it, we can make it happen.

Cremation services

Not everyone knows that there are many cremation options. If you are interested in cremation, the funeral home team can explain the process and different options. Whether it's a direct cremation without a memorial service, a witness cremation or a full funeral service (before or after) the cremation, we help you understand this increasingly common choice—and handle all of the cremation arrangements.

We are here for you

Please contact us for immediate assistance or if you would like more information about our services, including planning a funeral ahead of time.


Our funeral home was originally located in a storefront and known as DeMarco Bros. Undertakers. In the mid-30s, the brothers went their separate ways. James V. DeMarco Funeral Home was created and located in a downtown Binghamton location. In 1964, Albert J. DeMarco joined the business, and it was renamed James V. DeMarco & Son Funeral Home.

Today, the funeral home is a member of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers. When you choose a Dignity Memorial® provider, you not only receive the compassionate care you expect from a locally operated establishment, but also the value you deserve.
