Peter J. Nazare began providing services to the local community out of his home on Pennsylvania Avenue. As the business grew, he purchased a single family home on the corner of Ridge Road and Fern Avenue.

In 1944, when Peter died, his brother Joseph J. Nazare took over.Known as ''Bib'' to many, Mr. Nazare owned and operated the funeral home for some thirty years. His oldest son, Joseph M. Nazare, worked in and around the funeral home from age 14, became a Licensed Funeral Director in 1965 and continued in the family line of service with his father until his fathers' death in 1976.

Joseph J.'s youngest son, Robert J. Nazare worked alongside his brother until his untimely death in 2000. That same year, Joe's daughter, Karen became a Licensed Funeral Director and has joined her father in the family business.

Three generations of a family that took root in Lyndhurst and have created a legacy to be the people you know with respect, dignity and compassion for all those who pass through our doors.
