MEET THE FOUNDERS
A Bit of History
Established in 1949 by Quincy brothers, Francis M. Sweeney and Richard T. Sweeney, Sweeney Brothers Home for Funerals, Inc. at 1 Independence Avenue, Quincy is celebrating seventy years of service.
Francis and Richard were second generation funeral directors and sons of the well-known Quincy funeral director, Dennis S. Sweeney. Both men were World War II veterans. Francis, a decorated U.S. Army Sergeant, received the Bronze Star and served in the European Theater. He was also a graduate of the College of Holy Cross in Worcester, Class of 1936. Richard served with the U.S. Coast Guard, as a Seaman First Class, aboard LST 791 in the Pacific Theater.
Located in South Quincy, adjacent to the birthplaces of John Adams and John Quincy Adams, the Sweeney Brothers purchased their home from the Barnicoat Family. Built in the late 1800s, this beautiful estate was noted for its elegant cupola and the distinguished hand carved granite lions that remain an integral part of our front entrance.
