The Beecher Flooks Funeral Home, Inc of Pleasantville today still maintains the same qualities and traditions established by its founder Sam Beecher. I, William F. Flooks Jr., am a second generation funeral director with 31 years of experience in the funeral profession and still maintain Beecher Flooks Funeral Home as an independently owned and operated funeral home. When Sam Beecher began servicing families in 1928 he was determined to set his service standards high to create a strong bond with families. The personal contact and association with each family is what sets Beecher Flooks Funeral Home apart from others.
Renovations and expansions of the building have made Beecher Flooks Funeral Home one of the latest and most attractive funeral homes in Northern Westchester. It is located in a beautiful setting surrounded by dogwood and magnolia trees, with landscaping setting off the building.
We have and will continue to give that personal touch and caring to each family that we come in contact with. It is through the intervention with each family that enables them to begin the grieving process. Funeral Service and Community Service go hand in hand as we strive to maintain the trust that the community continues to put in us.
