Our History

The Galzerano Funeral Home was established in 1917 by Luigi and Jennie Galzerano.
We began in Bristol, PA where we served the communities of St. Anne’s and St. Mark’s Church. Luigi and Jennie had three sons; Vincent, Louis and Joseph.

In 1932, Vincent moved to the Tacony section of Philadelphia at 7155 Torresdale Avenue where he served the community of Our Lady of Consolation Church. He later moved the business across the street to it’s existing location and 7158 Torresdale Avenue.

Through Vincent’s hard work and involvement in various civic and community organizations, he grew the business in Tacony while also sustaining the funeral home in Bristol. He was very involved in the Sons of Italy of America where he grew to the position of National Treasurer. Vincent married Irma Mignogna of Holmesburg and had two children, Louis and Joanne.

Bustleton 1979

In 1978, Vincent and Louis opened the funeral home in the Bustleton section that now serves as our main location. Through years of experience, we now serve many new families and have continued to serve families for generations throughout the Philadelphia and surrounding areas.

Currently, the funeral home is run by Louis, his wife Kathleen and son Vincent. In addition to the Galzerano family, Carl Price, funeral director, and Christine Magenta. office manager, along with their skills and expertise, help to make Galzerano Funeral Home the successful business that it is today.
