On Saturday, Oct. 26, the Oyster Bay Funeral Home opened its doors to the community to showcase its newly expanded and appointed facilities. The funeral home underwent a major transformation, nearly doubling in size its chapel area.
Many local residents, clergy, family, staff and friends attended the event.
Lou Pillari, owner/Funeral Director led the ceremony by speaking about how this was accomplished, and that the improvements were done to better serve this community. He publicly thanked his family, architect Len Kurkowski, contractor
Frank Ilglesias of F&I Construction, and many others who were instrumental in making his dream of expanding the funeral home become a reality. He also introduced some of the local clergy that were in attendance to bless the new chapel:
Rev. Gerard Gordon Associate Pastor of St. Dominic RC Church, Rev. Stephen Brigandi Pastor of St. Gertrude RC Church, Rev. Archie Sosing St. Gertrude RC Church, Rev. Nelson Kalombo Ngoy Pastor of Community United Methodist Church of East Norwich, Rev. Ray and Rev. Diane Melograne Co-Pastors of North Shore Assembly of God all offered beautiful blessings to the facilities and to the Pillari Family.
The afternoon was a wonderful success enjoyed by all who were there. The Oyster Bay Funeral Home is truly a beautiful facility that can now efficiently accommodate families in need of their services whether the funeral is large or small.
