Welcome to The Michael Torsone Memorial Funeral Home, Inc. Family Owned & Operated Est. 1928

A Message From the Owner

If you are visiting our website it seems reasonable for us to conclude that someone you know or you yourself might have a need to look into making pre-arrangements or even immediate at-need arrangements. If this is the situation, we ask that you call us so we can speak personally with you. Only then can we do our best to meet your individual needs, concerns, and questions in a supportive way. We have provided this website for your convenience, as a source of general information. However, please know that it could never fully represent who we are or what we do. Our family has dedicated their lives to helping people at a time when they are unable to help themselves. We consider it a privilege to do so, and take our charge very seriously. If you are in need of our help, please call us at either of our locations, Poughkeepsie (845) 452-7700, or Highland (845) 691-2281, and ask for my son John Beck, or James Childs Jr. We are here to help you any hour of the day or night.
