    Cindy D Cavorti

    Manager

    Immediately upon her 1997 graduation from Nassau Community College, Cindy D. Cavorti began her career with O.B. Davis Funeral Homes and Casimir Funeral Home. After years of dedication to funeral service, she accepted her current position as location manager in 2009, upholding the firm’s reputation with honor and dignity.

    As a lifelong resident of Middle Island, New York, Cindy has tirelessly served her community not only as a licensed funeral director but also as a religious education instructor at St. Frances Cabrini Roman Catholic Church and as the past secretary of the Longwood PTA. Currently Cindy serves as president of the Nassau-Suffolk Funeral Directors Association, where she remains dedicated to ensuring ethical business practices are upheld in the funeral profession.

    Cindy’s pastimes are anything family-oriented, including camping, fishing and vacations with her husband and daughter. When she finally takes time for herself, she can be found on the beach, getting lost in a good book.

In addition to his roles in funeral service and education, James has even had several minor roles in theater and film.

    James resides in Mount Sinai, New York, and when all is said and done, being a family man and serving his community is what means most to him. He is a long-time member of the Ancient Order of Hibernians, Port Jefferson, where he is currently the chairperson of the standing committee and is past division historian. James is also an active member of the Port Jefferson Lions Club International. On his days off, he stays active physically and mentally by playing ice hockey, golf and creative writing.

These drives also uphold his distinguished reputation as a funeral practitioner, remaining faithful to the families who place their trust in him.
