The Spinelli Funeral Home was founded in 1948 by Louis M. Spinelli. Mr. Spinelli and his wife Marie quickly gained the respect and trust of the Ansonia and Valley community through their hard work, calm nature, and honesty. In 2004, Robert A. Ricciuti, associate funeral director and embalmer for sixteen years with this funeral home, achieved his longtime dream by purchasing the funeral home. The Spinelli-Ricciuti Funeral Home serves the Valley area residents with dedication, pride, compassion, honesty, and reliability, In other words, we pledge to serve the same way we would like to be served.
In 2005, soon after the purchase, a new, larger parking lot was constructed to accomodate nearly one hundred vehicles. In 2007, after many years of carefully trying to understand the changing needs of families and their friends, Rob decided it was time for the funeral home to undergo a major renovation. An addition was constructed to make our chapels significantly larger and more comfortable. We also added handicapped accessible bathrooms to the main level, a state of the art preparation room, and new carpeting.
In 2009, a large room was added from an unused portion of the building to create a relaxed atmosphere where arrangement conferences and family meetings are held. Rob and his wife Traci work hard to ensure that the Spinelli-Ricciuti Funeral Home stays progressive and continues to explore new and innovative trends in the industry. We work diligently to build a long lasting trusting relationship with all of the families we are privileged to serve. Our ultimate goal and mission is to assist you in planning a positive, meaningful experience for your family and friends in honor and memory of your loved one.
