What Families Say

Wonderful, caring family business. This is not our first time entrusting the final wishes of our loved ones to the Antonopoulos family. They have been thoughtful and caring, and counseled us as if we were family.


I cannot say enough good things about Gus and the entire staff at Farenga. Burying a loved one is tough but their attention and caring attitude was comforting. The entire process went well.


After four immediate family and many more relatives funeral services, I highly recommended Farenga Funeral Home. Their personal service and compassion is second to none!


They treated me like family! I am forever grateful for your patience and support during my time of grief! Thank you so much for everything.


We just had my father’s funeral here and we could not have been more pleased with the services provided. Gus (the owner) saw to every detail, the space is warm and tasteful, and the procession/service all went very well.


I would highly recommend this funeral home. Gus and his staff are phenomenal! They are truly lovely people who care about their customers!
