During this trying time of uncertainty we at Joseph A. Lucchese Funeral Home are committed to serving our families with the utmost respect and dignity.
In order to keep our staff and families safe we’ve instituted some measures:
1) At this point in time our office will be open daily from 8am to 4pm with limited staff.
2) We urge families to make funeral arrangements via telephone, video conference, or email.
3) If families must come into the funeral home we require families to call to make an appointment before coming in.
4) If families must come into the funeral home we will only allow the immediate family (spouse and children only) to be part of the arrangement conference.
While we’re limited in the services we can offer at this time we assure you that we are trying our best to maintain the traditions that families have come to expect. Our main concern at this point in time is the safety of our families and of our staff. The regulations instituted by the City and State of New York change daily and we will always keep our families informed of changes that will impact them.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call us at 718-828-1800.
