About Us


Scarr Funeral Home in Suffern, NY is truly a special a funeral home. We have been serving families since 1920. The funeral home is located close to the New York – New Jersey border and therefore we serve several communities from both states. Outside of Suffern, we have served families from Sloatsburg, New City, Mahwah, and Ramsey. We have found that we separate ourselves from other funeral homes in New York & New Jersey because:

- Our Commitment to Family and Our Rich History. Scarr Funeral Home opened its doors in 1920, and it has been owned and operated by the Scarr family the entire time. Leonard A. Scarr II is the current President and he represents the 3rd generation of Scarr family members to operate the funeral home. Scarr Funeral Home is the only family owned funeral home serving Suffern, NY and the surrounding communities. This importance of family extends outside of our ownership and out towards how we service clients. We treat every client that comes to us as they are a member of our own family. The bonds, relationships, and trust we have with our clients is one of the biggest reasons why we have been successful for nearly 100 years!

- Our Continual Support & Compassion Even After the Funeral. From the minute you call us to well after the the conclusion of the funeral service, we will be right by your side to help you through it all. We feel like it is our job to not only pay tribute to the deceased, but also provide the grieving family with the support and compassion they need. We are fully dedicated to help you through your grief. We have great grief support programs and can get you in touch with a counsellor if you need.  

- We are Innovative. We help families preserve traditions and customs, but we also have become very innovative in our services and products. Celebrations of life are becoming very popular, and we can create a ceremony that is truly personalized to suit what your loved one represented. Furthermore, you can now pre-arrange a funeral with our online platform and our Book of Memories allows us to create a personal online tribute page dedicated to honoring your loved one. These are just some of the new alterations to our service offerings to better meet new-age demands.
