Business Description
Gaydos Monument Company was founded in 1949 by John Gaydos, Jr. and his wife Carmie Grassi-Gaydos, both first generation immigrants. John and Carmie started the monument company in their home on Oak Spring Road in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania. Their purpose was to provide high quality memorials at reasonable prices to friends, family, neighbors and acquaintances in the community.

Their 1963 endeavor, across the street from their home was finally a dignified place to showcase their granite monuments -- the very same building Gaydos Monument Company operates from today. In 1981, John Gaydos, Jr. retired and his son, Roger, purchased the family business. Roger J. Gaydos, Sr., his wife Ellen, and all seven of their children have spent years working at the family business. Three of their sons: Roger Jr., Mike, and Mark, continue to work at the monument company today. Having maintained the family business through three generations, the Gaydos's have a true understanding of what it means to preserve family heritage - the very mission of crafting granite mo
