Our History ~ “Sincere & dignified service”

The Old Forge location was started in 1954 by the late Thomas P. Kearney (1925-1994). After honorably serving in the U.S. Navy during WWII, the help of the government’s G.I. Bill coupled with a modest loan from his coal miner father, the late WWI Army Veteran Thomas J. Kearney (1898-1981), the Old Forge funeral home was humbly established then exactly where it stands today, at 517 North Main Street in Old Forge, on the border both Old Forge and Taylor boroughs. With his wife, the former Janice Boyd (1926-1995) by his side, renovations were made and the funeral home opened for business.

Kevin P. Kearney


“From arranging an aerial flyover for the deceased pilot to orchestrating the departed’s favorite band to play while graveside, we have been able to honor a family’s loved one in just about every way possible. I’m passionate about what I do, and that passion transcends to each and every member of our team. Annually serving the most families in our area is something we’re proud of, but we’re even more proud of the trust and loyalty we continue to build each day.” -Kevin P. Kearney.
