Our History

Since 1876, the Farenga family has built a legacy of compassionate and quality service. At Farenga, we are family owned and operated. We go above and beyond for our families.

Born and raised in Astoria, Gus Antonopoulos grew up working at Farenga Funeral Home. He learned the business from his mentor, Felix A. Farenga and quickly realized his passion for helping people through life’s difficult moments.  Gus attended St. John’s University and the American Academy-McAllister Institute of Funeral Service before acquiring Farenga and Sons Funeral Home in 1998.

As a family owned and operated funeral home, Gus is proud to serve his neighbors and friends with love and respect.  For him, every detail matters. Whether it is providing meticulously maintained facilities or seeing that everyone is comfortably seated at the service, Farenga will ensure you comfort and care during this time of need.
