History

The Solimine Family's entry in funeral service began in 1965 when David J. Solimine opened funeral homes at 444 Broadway and 567 Boston Street, Lynn. Mr. Solimine provided service from both locations until the end of 1973, when after considerable renovations to the building at 444 Broadway, the Boston Street location was closed. David J. Solimine, Jr. joined his father in business in 1978. The firm moved to a newly constructed main location at 426 Broadway, Lynn in 1982.

In 1984, the Solimine Family purchased the TW Rhodes Funeral Home. The Rhodes firm dated back to 1886. The Rhodes Family established the Funeral Home at 67 Ocean St. in 1946. For a time, the firm was known as Solimine and Rhodes Funeral Home.

William J. Landergan, Jr. founded the Landergan Funeral Home in 1950. His roots in Funeral Service date back to his great grandfather, John C. Donovan, who established the Donovan Funeral Home in 1880. George Cole purchased the firm in 1956. In 1969 the Donovan and Cole Funeral Home merged into the Landergan Funeral Home. In 1987, Mavris and Mavris Funeral Home was also merged into the Landergan Funeral Home. In 1996, the Landergan firm was purchased by the Solimine Family from William J. Landergan, Jr.

In 2003, the Solimine Family purchased the Richardson Funeral Home, which was founded in 1872. When Harry Richardson took over the business, he purchased the estate at 48 Lafayette Park in 1922, where the business continued to operate until 2003. Harry was joined in business by his three sons, Harry, Walter and Earl. Earl's son, David Richardson, came into the family business in 1964. Following two substantial renovations and additions to the Funeral Home at 67 Ocean St., the Lafayette Park location was closed in late 2003.

In 2009, Joel C. Solimine joined his father and grandfather in business.
