Services for Veterans' Funerals

July 26, 2017

I recently learned that Gov. Malloy has temporarily closed the state's Military Funerals Office through executive order. Every veteran who has served this country deserves to be buried with military honors when they pass away. That's why my office has put together a geographical listing of veterans' organizations who will provide funeral services free of charge. Please watch the video below to learn more. Some towns have more than one contact option, but all of the individuals listed are ready to help.

The contacts for Cheshire, Southington, and Wallingford are:

Cheshire & Southington:

Mike Giusto

(C) 203-598-2647 / (F) 860-410-1156

Cheshire & Wallingford:

Robert Ellis

(H) 860-663-2436 / (C) 203-824-9658 / (F) 860-663-3693


I want to ensure every family has their loved one properly honored. If you have questions or need assistance, please don't hesitate to contact my office at 860-240-1378.
