Mr. David B. Feeney CFSP, CPC

Manager

Having grown up in the funeral business, I knew from an early age that compassion was, and is, the key to being with families who are in what probably is the worst time of their lives: the death of a loved one. Beginning in 1921, when my grandfather, John J. Feeney started this business, compassion was the foundation on which this business was built.

I believe that funeral director should give back to the community they live in. To help my community in any capacity is a way to say "thank you" for the faith that community members have placed in me. Being involved in community affairs brings me into frequent contact with many people I have served.

I am currently a member of the Ridgewood A.M. Rotary Club and the Ridgewood Stablehands and a parishioner of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel RC Church, Ridgewood.

I learned from my father and uncle that compassion begins at the initial contact with the family and continues long after the funeral has ended. The service we extend after the funeral is one of the reasons we have received the National Funeral Directors Pursuit of Excellence Award each year since 1994 and were inducted into the National Funeral Directors Association 'Hall of Excellence' in 2006. The Hall of Excellence is a great honor. The greatest honor bestowed on us, however, is serving families in their time of need with the compassion that has been our hallmark since 1921.

Funeral Director and Concierge

My career started at Feeney Funeral Home in 2015 but becoming a funeral director has always been my calling in life. I graduated from Eastwick College in 2018 at the top of my class. As President of the Funeral Service Student Association of Eastwick, I spent my time in college tutoring and organizing student involvement activities both academic and philanthropic.

As a newly Licensed Funeral Director, My passion is helping families with the process of creating a funeral that is memorable, and a special farewell for their loved one.

I am also the official concierge of Feeney Funeral Home, which means I am able to provide next level assistance to the families we help in their time of need. Fulfilling various tasks such as making restaurant reservations, coordinating transportation and hotel recommendations. I enjoy planning Feeney’s annual Senior Movie Day which is held every September in Ridgewood.

In my free time I enjoy live music, traveling, and nature. I believe that being a Funeral Director is my lifelong dedication and with commitment and compassion, I know I will thrive with this ever-changing profession.

Funeral Director

After a career in the life sciences and clinical research, I began searching for a more meaningful profession where I could employ my love of helping others.  This exploration led me to the field of Funeral Service, where I have been proud to serve families in our community ever since.

I have been with Feeney Funeral Home since 2016.  I earned my Funeral Service degree in 2017 from Eastwick College.  I graduated as Valedictorian and was awarded the “Excellence in an Applied Science Degree for Funeral Service”.  Shortly thereafter I became a Licensed Funeral Director.

When a family comes to me in their time of need, I am always ready to help them create a funeral service that will not only serve to honor and remember their loved one, but will also assist them in transitioning to the process of grieving.  The quality of care and compassion that a family receives at this most difficult period can have a profound effect on their lives moving forward, and it is my personal mission to make this time as dignified and memorable as possible.

In my free time I like to read, learn new culinary techniques and recipes, host family gatherings, and spend time with my husband and children.
