John Cunningham, a fully licensed funeral director for since 1985, believes families deserve choices regarding funeral arrangements, as much as at any other time of life. That’s why, in 2004, he opened Community Alternative Funeral & Cremation Services Ltd. on Hunter Street, just west of the bridge.
"I had worked at other funeral homes in the past and I could see that while there were a number of good funeral homes, there just wasn’t a lot of choice for families when it came to the cost of funeral services." said Cunningham, who owns the business with his wife, Heather, a local teacher.
"We are a full-service traditional funeral home that provides families with an alternative to the traditionally high cost of funeral services. Until we opened, there just wasn’t a lot of choice.”
