On June 1, 1984, the Virgil L. Howard Funeral Home in Shinglehouse was purchased by Kevin J. Dusenbury, Sr., continuing a long tradition of proud service to the Shinglehouse and surrounding areas that was started many years ago by Howard D. Morton and continued by Virgil L. Howard. As we mark 30 years of ownership and service to Shinglehouse and the surrounding communities, our pledge is simple. We will continue to provide the honored and dignified services that we offer to the families that choose our funeral home establishment. With the addition of our son, Kevin J. Dusenbury, Jr., we will be providing the finest in services and facilities that you expect from our funeral home for many, many years to come. We would like to express our greatest appreciation for all of those who have trusted upon us to help in your greatest hour of need. As Albert Einstein stated, “Only a life lived in service to others is worth living.” Like Mr. Einstein, our greatest purpose in our funeral establishment is to help you at your greatest hour of need.
Dear Kevin and Patty I want to thank you both for your loving support during a difficult time. You thought of every detail and were very thorough in the planning of Dad's funeral and after his passing. I will always think of you fondly. God bless you both always.
