The Return To A Family-Owned Business

Funeral Home, located at 90 North Broadway, Tarrytown, New York, has been acquired by Alan P. Guarino.  Alan has been a licensed funeral director for over thirty years.  His experience in the funeral business, however, goes back much further.

  Alan’s uncle opened a funeral home in the Wakefield  section of the Bronx during the 1940s.  At the age of thirteen, Alan began working for his uncle after school and on weekends.  He learned the business from the bottom up and developed a great appreciation for this work.  

 Alan grew up helping families during their time of sorrow and treated each family with respect. After graduating from The McAllister Institute of Funeral Service and acquiring his license, he met his wife, Janice, who was also raised in the funeral business. Their family consists of three daughters: Stephanie Corona (and son-in-law Matthew Corona), Danielle and Amanda. With the help of his family, Alan continued to work in the funeral business hoping to one day own his own funeral home.  

When the opportunity to own The Dwyer & Vanderbilt Funeral home presented itself, Alan welcomed it with open arms.  The Dwyer and Vanderbilt Funeral Home, originally owned by the Kelly family, is once again family owned and operated. Alan hopes to recreate the compassion, caring and integrity started by Jack Kelly so many years ago.
