About Us

Funeral planning has been a family calling for 4 generations in the Gasparini Family.  Like most Italian immigrants relocating to Rockford, Gasparini Funerals initially settled on the city's’ south side, in the “Italian Neighborhood” of Rockford.  The funeral home opened to serve the families with whom they shared faith and community.

Serving families since the 1920’s, the Gasparini name carries on their tradition of caring, compassionate and affordable funerals today with Tony Gasparini, great grandson of the original owner.

Tony grew up in Rockford, attended St. Francis Consolidated grade schools, Boylan Central Catholic High School, Western Illinois University and Worsham College of Mortuary Science.  He and his wife Nicole have raised 3 boys in Rockford.

With years of experience and a sense of duty to his families, you have all the experience, care and amenities of the larger funeral homes without the outrageous expense.
