Since 1902, we have been passionate about taking care of you.
When Maurice Ouellette died on February 19, 2008, it ended a career in funeral service that spanned 52 years. A man of great compassion, Maurice could always be relied upon to offer his support and assistance to those in the community. He is frequently remembered for his willingness and capacity to do “whatever it took” to make things easier in times of need.
For funeral directors Ron D'Amato and Jay McKenna, this tradition was instilled in them through Maurice’s daily example. Today, Ron and Jay honor his memory by continuing to serve families with the same compassion and values that he did.
