In 1932 Ralph and Marie Damiano opened their home to the community of Long Branch. The Dutch Colonial style home was built in the 1890's and purchased by the family in 1931. It was their hope that they could give the people of the area one of the most modern and complete homes of its kind, and they did. Ralph and Marie's involvement in their community helped them to understand the needs of their friends and neighbors. Through the years, trusting relationships have been created which have lasted for generations and for that we are grateful. In 1968 Ralph and Marie's daughter, Vida assumed the position of Manager and held that title until 2001. In January 2001, Vida's son R.J. "Bud" assumed the position of manager, continuing the direction, management and along with his sister Diane*, ownership of the funeral home into the third generation.
