Ross Morizzo

 
Long time club member Ross Morizzo gave his classification talk on the Morizzo Funeral Home family Business, located at 2550 Hassell Road, Hoffman Estates since 2012.
 
Integrity, compassion and trust... we take these words very seriously.  On April 1, 1938 his grandfather opened the families first funeral home on the west side of Chicago at Harrison and Western.  His Grandfather was 27 at the time.  Since then our family has never turned away a family.  We have lived by the motto "a friend in need is a friend indeed.  
 
When my grandfather was 50 he died suddenly of a cerebral hemorrhage leaving the business to my grandmother, 17 year old uncle and my dad who was only a 14 at that time.  Instead of closing the business they decided to keep it going because my uncle and father both wanted to become funeral directors.  In order to keep the business going they needed to have a licensed funeral director on hand. Since my uncle and dad were still too young to get their Mortuary Science degree, they relied on the nightman/embalmer to hang his license until they could attend college.
