About Us

Since 1961, the Brueggemann Funeral Home of East Northport has served the time honored role of helping families to cope with loss and celebrate the life of their loved ones. Started by Robert and Lillian Brueggemann, three generations of the Brueggemann family have dedicated themselves to the compassionate care of our community. We believe in giving each family personal attention, and custom catered service that allows us to deliver uncompromising value and quality to every family.

Directors are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to discuss your families needs and wishes. Our home underwent extensive renovation in 2013; making our chapels more comfortable for you and your family. Large, well lit chapels with comfortable seating and easy access. Handicap accessible entrances, restrooms, and a children entertainment room means that everyone in your family can come pay their respects and not feel left out.

Unlike other area funeral homes – we are not a chain. All of our directors live here, in the East Northport area. We take the business of caring for our neighbors reverently. With no corporate office to answer to, we don’t pressure you to buy, or bait you with gimmicks and sales tricks. We can help you plan a traditional funeral, or let you pick and choose only those services you need.

Before bargaining, and ultimately compromising with someone else, come see us to discuss a truly personal, compassionate service that honors your loved one with no compromises.


Every family has it’s story, our’s is no different. We look back on our past to remember those things both happy and sad, which give meaning to our lives, and to which we forever dedicate our service. Take a moment to reflect with us on our own beginnings, and the humble history of our home.

Our Staff

Once you call on our service, one of our Licensed Funeral Directors will immediately get to work for your family. A single, dedicated director will stay in contact with you through all phases of planning, explaining your options and make recommendations at your request. We handle all the details.
