A Short History
Joe Lucchese is preserving a family tradition of service in Morris Park that started five generations ago. In 1875, Robert Ruggiero’s family began serving families with a full-service Bronx funeral home. Robert was pleased when Joe, a lifelong resident of the Bronx, reached out to take over the Ruggiero business. Mr. Ruggiero purchased Ribustello & Son in 2000, another family owned funeral home in Morris Park since 1963. A strong family – and community – tradition continues.
