About Charles J. O'shea funeral homes
Having grown up living above his father’s funeral home in Queens, NY, Charles J. O’Shea, Jr. continued the tradition of a family run business and opened his own funeral home in East Meadow, NY in 1963.
He developed deep roots in the community – raising a family and building up his business. His personal connection to the families in the area, and his dedication and professionalism earned the trust & respect of all. Charles saw the need for another location in order to accommodate his friends and neighbors, and so he opened his second funeral home in Wantagh in 1979.
In 2007, with his partners, Louis Guerra, Louis Bruno and James Bruno, the R.C. Albrecht Funeral Home became the Albrecht, Bruno & O'Shea Funeral Home in East Islip, NY.
The funeral homes are staffed by eight licensed funeral directors, fully trained to attend to the technical details of a funeral while remaining sensitive to the feelings of all involved. They encourage any and all questions from family members to ensure that the family’s individual needs and personal desires are met. They will carry out services, transportation, cremations, memorials and other arrangements with dignity and genuine concern. They will gladly answer any questions regarding pre-arranging a funeral frankly and confidentially. You may feel secure knowing that the final tribute to your loved one will be conducted to your personal wishes and with the utmost care.
In addition, our courteous and caring visitation staff are on premises to attend to your guests’ needs, and our office staff is available to assist you with any insurance or government documents you may have.
Our chapels can facilitate visitation as intimate as 36 people to the largest chapel in Wantagh which can accommodate 125 people seated. Each facility is handicap accessible.
In times of great loss, people seek help from someone they know and trust. They can feel confident that these are the people at the Charles O’Shea Funeral Homes and the Albrecht, Bruno and O'Shea Funeral Homes.
