The Silas F. Richardson & Son Funeral Home was founded in 1942 by Silas F. Richardson. Silas had followed in the tradition of his family, serving the families of Leominster. His son, Charles "Charlie" P. Richardson joined the family firm in 1954. He worked alongside his father until Silas' death in 1974. In 1984 Charlie's son-in-law, Ernest L. Rooney, joined the firm and worked with him until Charlie's death in 2005.
In 2012, Kurt F. Eckstein joined the firm, and in 2020, upon the semi-retirement of Ernest, was given the opportunity to purchase the funeral home from Ernest Rooney and the Richardson Family. In February of 2021, longtime funeral director, Cicely Carter joined the firm to assist in the day-to-day operations of the funeral home. Kurt, along with Ernest, and Cicely, as well as the staff at the funeral home, will continue the traditions of caring and personal attention that have always been associated with the Richardson family.
We at the Richardson Funeral Home are proud of our long-standing commitment to the families of Leominster. The Richardson Funeral Home has been here for generations and will continue to care for all of your families' needs.
