The SALVATORE Rocco & Sons Funeral Homes was founded in 1927, making it one of the oldest family owned funeral homes in the country. Its founder, Salvatore A. Rocco, believed until his death in 1990 that a funeral professional should be an integral and vital member of the community which he serves. This sense of responsibility was perpetuated by his three sons Horace, Henry and Richard Sr., who became licensed funeral directors.
The Rocco family has promoted numerous civic activities, including the donation of cash scholarships to deserving students from local high schools for generations. In 1992, the Rocco family presented a time capsule vault to the city of Everett in its centennial year and coordinated the collection of memorabilia from hundreds of area residents which will be unearthed in the year 2042. Also the funeral home has sponsored grief educational seminars as well as memorial masses for the community-at-large. These activities reflect on the funeral homes commitment to serve a community that has placed so much trust in it over the years.
With the acquisition in 2005 of both the Joseph A. Carr Funeral Home and the J.E. Henderson Funeral Home, we now have three trusted families that bring over 250 years of combined funeral service experience.
