Mr. David B. Feeney CFSP, CPC
Senior Funeral Director, NJ Lic. No. 3482
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.
