Michael A. Connell Born in Huntington before the turn of the century, Mike was raised and educated in Huntington. He was a proud veteran of World War I and an accomplished cornet player who played at every Veterans Day parade at 11 am for all deceased veterans. After the war, he attended the world renowned Dr. Renourd School of Embalming in New York City returning to Huntington in 1923 to establish the M.A. Connell Funeral Home. Mike married a nurse Florence McIntyre in 1930 and in 1931 they built the Funeral Home at its current location. The Home is now run by his sons John and Peter, and Grandsons Michael and Nick Berghela.

After a death, there are many legal details to hammer out. While it is not necessary to get a lawyer, it is strongly recommended. A lawyer will make sure all the T's are crossed and I's are dotted. The time following a death of a loved one is extremely emotional, and even the closest family will have disagreements over the most trivial matters. To make sure there is still peace in the family, it is a good idea to let a lawyer figure things out.
Before getting in touch with a lawyer there are several important documents that you need to gather. Those include:
* Bank Statements
* Insurance Policies
* Vehicle and Boat titles
* Tax Documents
