Joseph J. Darrow Sr.

Joseph J. Darrow Sr.

Our Founder, 1928-1979

Joseph J. Darrow Sr. worked for the Molene Plow Factory Company in Poughkeepsie, NY for a short time. He then left to work in the insurance business for what was then Metropolitan Life Insurance Co. and is known today as Metlife. While working there, he would pay people's premiums for them when they didn't have the nickle or dime to pay. He became a licensed Embalmer in 1927 and shortly afterwards opened his own funeral home with the purchase of 39 South Hamilton Street in Poughkeepsie. This was where he and his wife, Pauline, raised 5 sons; Joseph Jr., John, James, Jerome, and Justin while operating the Joseph J. Darrow Sr. Funeral Home inc. Starting out was very difficult, but with his good natured personality to the families that he served, he persevered with honesty and integrity.
