I was born and raised in Middletown and began my career in the funeral profession in 1978. I am a graduate of the Simmons School of Mortuary Science in Syracuse, NY, Class of 1979. After apprenticeship and employment with other funeral homes, I returned to Middletown in 1984 and purchased Coughlin-Lastrina Funeral Home in Middletown. In February of 2017 I purchased Portland Memorial Funeral Home and completely renovated the property to better serve families with modern updates and new staff.
I have been a funeral director for over 35 years and take great pride in serving all of Middlesex County. I gladly serve families with over three decades of professional expertise, dedication to 24 hour service, and-most importantly-compassion. Allow me the privilege of caring for your family during your time of need.
