Inspired by your stories
We'll start with a conversation. You can tell us about the passions, pursuits and hobbies that composed a lifetime, and we'll weave those elements to create a meaningful and memorable tribute.
Imagine guests wearing white linen dress in tribute to a family matriarch’s affinity for pearls and lace. Or, envision a cruise-in for the man who loved his motorcycle and road trips, with his gleaming cruiser on display in our flexible reception space or stateroom. Our creative resources and your imagination combine to fulfill almost any final wish.
From military funerals to professional catering
We have considerable experience conducting military funerals, complete with military honors. For those who choose cremation, we want you to know you have many options. We can hold a viewing beforehand, a touching memorial service afterwards or another unique option just for your specific wishes.
Whether you select a traditional religious funeral or a contemporary celebration of life, count on us to help you arrange each detail, from the music playlist to flowers and decor.
Contact us, day or night
We consider it an honor to serve families from Brick to Berkeley Township. Please reach out to us if we may arrange a personal tour of our interfaith chapel, or if you need immediate assistance with funeral arrangements in Toms River.
John J. Quinn began his career as a teenager, assisting in the sensitive removal of those who passed from the 1918-1919 influenza pandemic that claimed 675,000 lives. From drawing horse-drawn wagons to working in funeral homes, Mr. Quinn opened the John J. Quinn Funeral Home in Orange, New Jersey. At his death in 1955, his son, John J. Quinn Jr., assumed operations and built on his father’s success.
The Hopping impact
Wes Hopping opened the Hopping Funeral Home in Livingston, New Jersey, in 1945. After World War II, people began leaving the busy metropolitan area, moving into new homes in the previously rural area of Livingston. As Mr. Hopping planned to sell his establishment, John Jr. realized the future potential of this thriving community. Hopping Funeral Home was acquired in 1962 and an aggressive construction project began immediately to increase its size in order to serve a growing community.
Expansion to serve more people
As the people of Livingston and the surrounding areas began retiring to the shore area, a funeral home was constructed in Toms River to serve the newly built retirement communities of Holiday City and Silver Ridge. As the communities of Holiday City and Silver Ridge expanded, a much larger facility was constructed at its current location on Mule Rd.
Expansion to serve more people
In the 80s, John Jr. and his 2 sons, John J. Quinn III and Kevin Quinn, acquired additional funeral homes in Bergen, Hudson, Sussex and Ocean Counties. In 1997, the funeral homes joined the Dignity Memorial® network, North America’s largest provider of funeral, cremation and cemetery services.
