Business History
In 1870, just after the end of the Civil War, B. H. Morrissett left his trade as a cabinetmaker and established what was to become the oldest continuously operated business in South Richmond. The Morrissett family served their community for generations, until 1969 when Esther Morrissett sold the company to Robert G. Danielson.In 1998, the firm was acquired by two of its employees, Richard M. Booker and Laurence F. Spiaggi. On December 31, 2015, Dick Booker retired after 47 years service to our firm. Larry Spiaggi and his wife, Sue Danielson became the sole owners. Larry and Sue are keenly aware of the 136-year tradition of service they have inherited with this exceptional Richmond funeral home, and continue to dedicate themselves to deserving the trust and confidence of the families they serve.
