‘Moloney Family Funeral Homes & Cremation Centers’ Acquires ‘Sinnickson’s Funeral Home Moriches

Maloney SinnicksonsSinnickson and Moloney: They’re undisputedly the two most highly-respected names in providing funeral services to families on Long Island, and now Sinnickson’s Moriches Funeral Home, Inc., has been acquired by Moloney Family Funeral Homes & Cremation Centers.

Four generations of the Sinnickson Family – Wes and Amy Sinnickson, Thomas and Marie Sinnickson, Lee and Loretta Sinnickson and Keri Sinnickson, have served the local communities for over 77 years. Lee W. Sinnickson’s intent was to retire by age 70 providing he could find a family-owned funeral operator that would maintain his family’s impeccable tradition of exemplary professional service. “The Moloney famiy has a reputation for high service standards and I know that all of the communities we serve will appreciate this,” Lee W. Sinnickson said.

‘Moloney Family Funeral Homes & Cremation Centers’ co-owners and partners, Peter Moloney and Dan Moloney, expressed a sense of fond mutuality alongside Lee W. Sinnickson. “Like the Sinnickson’s, our family has been serving the communities of Long Island for almost 100 years. The timing was right,” Peter Moloney said, “and the Sinnicksons felt we were best suited to meet the needs of the families in these communities.”

Dan Moloney noted: “The purchase of Sinnickson’s Moriches Funeral Home, Inc., will allow the newly formed ‘Moloney-Sinnickson Funeral Home & Cremation Center’ to continue the high quality of service only a locally-owned and family-operated funeral business can offer.”

During an interview last week, Peter Moloney detailed the Moloney family members who are active in the family business. In addition to Dan and Peter are Dan’s daughter, Danielle Moloney-Hasset, Peter’s son Connor M. Moloney, and Dan’s and Peter’s nephew, Nicholas Wheeler. They comprise the fourth generation of the Moloney family who are pursuing careers in funeral services to carry on the Moloney tradition. Acknowledging the pride and perfection of the Sinnickson family’s longstanding reputation for providing funeral services to local communities, Peter Moloney noted, “The sale of a family-run business is a big decision for any business-owner, and we know that Lee and his daughter, Keri, put a lot of thought and consideration into their decision.” Peter added, “Many families in the area are familiar with Moloney Funeral Homes, and we are grateful for the opportunity to service the families in the area.”

Moloney Funeral Homes was founded in 1933 by Peter and Dan’s grandfather, James P. Moloney, who launched the family business at its Central Islip location. Today, Moloney Funeral Homes operates locations throughout Long Island where, in addition to its Central Islip location, the family business eventually expanded to its Lake Ronkonkoma location in 1962 by Peter’s and Dan’s father, F. Daniel Moloney, followed by the Holbrook location which opened in 1978. When Peter graduated Marist College in 1986, he and Dan acquired the Central Islip location from their uncle, Jack Moloney. The family business further expanded in 1991 at its Bohemia location, and in 1994 the Moloney family opened the Hauppauge location.

Dan and Peter noted that increasing numbers of families are preferring cremation disposition following funerals in contrast to traditional ground burials. The Moloney brothers underscore the importance they place on this service as they include ‘cremation’ in the name Moloney-Sinnickson Funeral Home & Crematory. Whatever array of services families choose as they prepare farewells for their loved ones, Peter assures maximum service will be given to ensure a most personalized funeral or service. “We make funerals and services special through being creative and through dialogue to understand the needs and the hobbies of the families,” Peter explained. “We individualize each so that we can make it a celebration of life, while always maintaining the highest level of service standards.”

Families who have pre-arranged and pre-paid services with Sinnicksons Moriches Funeral Home are assured that their funds are secure and that they meet all regulations relating to preplanning in New York State approved trust accounts. These accounts will be honored and will remain intact. Any questions about pre-planning may be directed to Peter Moloney or Dan Moloney at (631) 878-0065.
