At such a difficult time, you look for moments to bring you comfort and ease your pain, and Riotto’s Funeral Home was there every step of the way. My father looked exactly as he always did, so natural, so peaceful. Everyone was comforted. Thank you for everything you did to make such a difficult time in our lives a bit less painful.

I want to thank the entire Riotto Funeral Home team for everything they did to make my mother's wake, funeral, and burial a positive experience during the most challenging time of my life. Nicole, Rosa, Rob, etc., everyone I worked with was excellent and took their time to help me through the entire process. This was the send-off my mother deserved, and I'm convinced it couldn't have been duplicated elsewhere.

Thank you,

Dear Richard, Esteban and entire Riotto FH Staff,

Thank you for everything you did for my sister Barbara Matthews. I'm especially grateful for your setting up all services online. I've watched them multiple times and was able to share them with my sister in CA, so she got to watch the services as well.
For years I've tried to take care of my father's daughter from afar. I met Barbara in my twenties for the first time. Near the end, Ken, Barbara's Apt. Manager, St. Joes, and everyone at Riotto made that responsibility I took on go more smoothly and I could rest in knowing that Barbara was in good hands.

Words cannot express my sincere and heartfelt thanks for your wonderful support for the funeral arrangements of my mother Philomena Canzano. You were there with me every step of the way with your compassionate words and expert guidance that made this very difficult situation much easier. Your attention to every detail was unsurpassed taking care of everything from the gorgeous flowers to the Chalice including the engraving and it was all outstanding. Mom looked beautiful and peaceful. The chapel is just beautiful and the family photos on the screens were much appreciated. Once again my sincere thanks to everyone at Riotto’s.

I highly recommend funeral services with Riotto Funeral Home. The price of services was very reasonable and affordable. The staff was very understanding , helpful, caring and really worked with us during our time of need. They made everything painless and easy. Our deceased died in another state. I had looked up the logistics of bringing the body to New Jersey. Websites stated I had to contact funeral home in the other state, arranged with airline to bring body here as well as contact a local funeral home. We chose Riotto because of location, parking; services offered and when it was mentioned that they will take care of the transport of body, contacting a funeral home at the other state, we were very thankful. They also took very good care of our deceased which became quite fragile due to autopsies and our not being allowed to claim body for almost a week.

I have been using Riotto Funeral Home for quite a few years. I manage a senior housing facility in Jersey City and have had the privilege of helping many of my residents with making pre funeral arrangements, as well as planning and handling numerous funerals at the time of their passing. Dealing with Riotto Funeral Home is by far outstanding. Richard Riotto and his staff are fantastic to work with. Kind, compassionate, accommodating, and ready to go above and beyond the call of duty to make an unpleasant event dignified, pleasing, and satisfying. The planning process is painless. Their focus on detail is tremendous. They work with you to see that the deceased’s wishes are met in every way possible, from dress preferences, flower choices, hymns, prayers and even nail polish colors and headstones, they cover it all. Their detail for the wake is extraordinary – the hair, nails, and skin tone are all so natural and professionally done. The deceased looks just like they are in a peaceful sleep. Whatever suffering or trauma they may have gone through prior is no longer evident. The loss for those remaining cannot be taken away, but seeing a person look so good and at peace at this time brings much added contentment. They are truly excellent in their profession. Compliments are always numerous from family and friends. The facility itself is modern, warm, cozy, and totally handicapped accessible. Parking is right outside the door and is plentiful.

Richard, I cannot thank you enough for all the assistance you have given me over the years and wish you continued success in your well-chosen profession. You deserve more then a five-star rating.

Most Sincerely
Ken Wessler

Losing a loved one is never easy, And having to plan their funeral while grieving is even worse. Richard and his staff went above and beyond to accommodate me during my time of need. They’re very understanding, empathetic and made me feel like family. From the very beginning this gut wrenching ordeal was nothing but smooth sailing and the staff did all they can to make me feel comfortable and put me at ease. They took great care of the love of my life and I am forever grateful.
Thank you Riotto Funeral Home.

My brother and I had never planned a funeral before. So needless to say when my father passed we were overwhelmed. Adam and the rest of the staff were extremely patient, helpful and put us at ease with the many decisions and choices that had to be made. They answered all our questions. And my father looked as if he was sleeping in his casket. He looked great. Also, they went out of their way to deliver flowers to our home after the funeral that we had mistakenly left behind. I wholeheartedly recommend this Funeral Home. They will put your mind at ease and are extremely supportive with all your needs.

In this awful time of Covid-19, I have thought about all the kindness, goodness compassion and professionalism the Riotto Funeral Home has given to the families of Jersey City and neighboring municipalities.

NJ has been stunned by the number of deaths and the grief that accompanies loss, and I cannot imagine the stresses and efforts of Richard and Adam and their colleagues.

For the dozens of services for friends, aunts and uncles, grandparents and parents, and of course Gina. I will never forget the comfort and beauty of the services you have given to my family.

Thank you for everything you have done and continue to do. Be safe and content in the good work you all do.

I would like to take this time to thank you for your assistance this past week planning the wake and funeral for Louis Becker. You and the staff at Riotto Funeral Home went above and beyond in seeing that all of Mr. Becker's funeral preparations were met. Also, I appreciate everyone's help and support on Christmas Eve when Mr. Becker passed away. They took time away from their family in seeing that Mr. Becker received immediate attention.

In closing, I apologize for the actions of a certain few that took place at the funeral home prior to Mr. Becker's Mass and burial.

God Bless and Happy New Year!

I am sure that over the years that you have been in business that you have perhaps had our share of complaints, however this letter is just the opposite.

I am referring to my spray that I ordered through your firm for Roselyn Piccillo on Sunday, June 9, 2019. I found the arrangement of Roses to be beautiful and as well all the other flower arrangements you attended for the Visitation. They were all "works" of art. Each one was more beautiful then the last on I looked at. Well done!

Hello Richard,

Once again, on behalf of the family, I cannot express how wonderful you and your team were in handling the arrangements for navigating Jean Monaco's passing.

I recognize you're running a business and running it well. However, your compassion, understanding, individualized attention and patience cannot be overstated. You and the members of your team were responsive in addressing the smallest of concerns efficiently and effectively.

Joe and I stopped back at 4:00 in search of a black sweater and the next 2-4 viewing was just ending. I just know you gave the family after Jean and before us the same individualized attention. That's what makes you so unique. I can't imagine what it's like to be in your shoes or business but you were absolutely fantastic for making it so easy for us. Plus you're an artist. Your suggestions on the coffin, flowers and how you dressed and made up Jean will be my last memory of her - beautiful -- and not of how she looked in the hospital.

Thank you (as always)

Randy and Richard Riotto made making arrangements for a memorial for my late father a comforting and calming experience, despite the fact that it was the first time I ever had to do so. His compassion towards me and my family and his sensitivity to our needs helped soothe the pain of the "what ifs" and the "if onlys" that haunts the minds and hearts of those left behind. He made me feel that he personally knew my Dad, a WWII Veteran, and made arrangements for US Marines to play taps and present me with the folded flag on behalf of our Government. Richard went out of his way, at my request, to work with a company outside of New Jersey to have both of my parents' ashes combined and encased in blown glass and exhibited so elegantly within the beautiful and timeless surroundings of Riotto Funeral Home. When the Lord comes to calI a loved one home - and He always does - I can think of no better earthly "angels" than Randy and Richard Riotto to help you through one of Life's most difficult times.

I reached out to Riotto Funeral Home in October '17 .. I spoke to Richard, who is so kind and professional. My mom was in her early 50s so i had no clue about funeral arrangements. It was such a relief he was so flexible despite being so busy.. I highly recommend this place- Funeral details should be the last thing any family should worry about while going through a difficult time of loosing a loved one. My only complaint is the hindu priest that performed the ritual was HORRIBLE> his name is PRAKASH DAVE. AVOID HIM> He would literally pause in the middle of the puja because he forgot what comes next... smh so unprofessional. I felt so furious how can someone manage to ruin a funeral... Other than that everyone else was smooth & pleasant as it can be.

February 7, 2018

Excellent Service!! All of the staff is very attentive. My family has used this funeral home for over 30 years and would not even imagine going anywhere else! They make such a difficult time so much easier. The owner Richie Riotto is the best! I highly recommend them to anyone in the Hudson County area they will not disappoint!

Mr. Richard Riotto,

I wanted to extend my sincere and heartfelt thanks to you and your staff for all you did for my family as we mourned the loss of my father, Mr. Albert Canzano, from the time he left our home to his interment everything was perfect.

Your kindness and professionalism was very comforting to us during this most difficult time.

You helped me surpass my thoughts for honoring my father the way he deserved as a WWII Marine veteran. Your attention to every detail made such a difference from the police escorts, US Marines honor guard and the US Marine medallion on the side of the hearse. Just amazing and beautiful. You seemed to think of everything that I didn’t even imagine could be done. You and your staff were always there to help with any concerns and were very accommodating and comforting to my entire family.

Everything was timed perfectly and went very smoothly the day of the funeral and I couldn’t have been more pleased.

Again, my sincerest thanks to you and your staff.

I just have to say that the Riotto Family took the time and patiently guided my family through a very difficult period. My daughter Tiffany passed away suddenly and we had no idea what we needed to do. A statement the Riotto's made put my family at ease, "She is in our house and she is now part of our family." This statement showed they truly care and it's not just a business to them. They treat each family with respect and cater to their individual needs. Tiffany loved a certain type of music and it was played, with the help of a knowledgeable person who knew how to use the Bluetooth. She was proud of her tattoos, they were proudly displayed. The beautiful work they did made my baby girl look like she was sleeping peacefully. I can't begin to show my appreciation, but I hope anyone who unfortunately needs these services will choose Riotto Funeral Home, a family who cares.

Riotto Funeral Home is not just a business- they treat their customers like family. When we lost our mother unexpectedly this year we had no idea what we were doing planning a funeral. The Riotto staff walked us through every step with patience and caring that I never would expect from strangers. They made the whole painful process run smoothly for us while we were busy drowning in grief. They handled everything like professionals, but at the same time we never felt like they were putting business over comforting a grieving family. My family will be forever indebted to the warm caring and patient staff of Riotto Funeral Home for how they treated my mother, preparing her for us to say our final goodbyes. They even paid attention to the details of how mom should look for the wake so she could look like herself - and they did an AMAZING job. She looked beautiful and peaceful. If you should ever unfortunately have a need for a funeral home, we highly recommend Riotto's -

Richard J. Riotto

When a devastating death of a loved one comes suddenly and changes the lives of those who are left to pick up what it leaves behind, especially so when it is a parent as was the case with our father (Jose Rodriguez), knowing what or how to deal with all that falls on ones shoulders is very challenging.

It was truly a comfort to find that there are people around that can help you when you need it most.

You and your staff are the help that is needed to pull together what has fallen apart. The service, care, professionalism and speed which we received from you and your staff was without doubt the best available.

My sisters and I would like to thank you very much for this attention that was given to us including the delivery of the remains on time and in person.

Thankfully Yours,
The Rodriguez Family

Dear Randy, Richard & Staff,

Angelo and I would like to extend our gratitude to you for your expertise in preparing our dear Aunt Hazel for her eternal life in Heaven with her beloved Tony.
We know "Z" Tony was anxiously waiting at the Pearly Gates with open arms and she just couldn't wait to tell him how pleased she was with Richard's proficiency and guidance and of course, Randy's charm.
Than you to the staff of Riotto Funeral Home; she certainly looked very "Regal" (the way she always presented herself throughout her entire life.)

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Dear Richard,

The gratitude I feel really can't be put into words. From our initial meeting through all the changes we asked for, casket, DVD, prayer card, to the small details like dinner reservations, weather considerations, the limo picking us up, I am so appreciative.

Most importantly, I will be forever grateful for you restoring Aunt Dot to look like the graceful lady she was. Aunt Dot was very special to us and I truly believed when I said I was leaving her in your hands that she was in the right care.

I hope this conveys how touched we all were.
Thanks again and again.

Like I told you that my first time in Riotto's was in 1961 when my grandfather passed away and then other times for other family members after that. Everything was so well planned and thought out and you gave us the feeling that this was not just another job for you but the feeling that our mom was very special to you as well. Candice and I and the family wish to express our gratitude to you and your entire staff for the compassionate care you showed us when our mom Josephine (Joan) passed away. You relieved us of the burden of her final arrangements with your professional expertise and utmost attention to detail. Everything that you did from my visit to the funeral home, to the final moments of the funeral, and interment was handled with exquisite professionalism, compassion and respect. We felt mom's funeral was dignified and elegant. Mom looked so peaceful and beautiful. We want to express our deepest thanks and appreciation and our family has the highest regard for you, your staff.

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the wonderful services you provided when my father passed away.  Your kindness and professionalism made a very difficult time a little easier.  The "Count" would have been pleased.  He always knew, and said, when his time came - Randy would know what to do.  You not only took care of him but my sister and I as well.  I know my father was also your friend and will certainly be missed by all.  Thank you again for your kind words, you help and your meticulous attention to detail.

Kim & Jessica Malfitano

Dear Riotto Brothers Randy & Richard,

I had to let you know how wonderful the both of you are.  The sudden loss of my father-in-law was extremely difficult for the family which you handled most elegantly.  Since I am the daughter-in-law and had to help with most of George's arrangements, I have to say I was worried.  You two made it easier than I thought it was going to be.  The fact that we have been out of the Jersey City loop for twenty years was hard to make choices and again there you two were every step of the way right to the end.  I don't know if people let you know how great you guys are but I sure want you to know you made a extremely difficult task much less ugly and for that I am grateful.

Thanks again,
Joanne Adamshick & family

To the Riotto Family,

I wish to express my gratitude for all the sympathy, thoughtfulness and caring shown by you and the members of your family.  Even though both my parents did not have an easy departure, you and your sons allowed me to remember them with the dignity they once possessed.  I was especially pleased with Mom having only just seen her.  I could not help feeling last Wednesday that in spite of your own illness, my mother came first because she was an old friend.  Thank you, to all of you.

Irene E. Valiarte

Dear Randy Sr., Randy Jr. & Richard,

On behalf of my family, I would like to express my sincere gratitude for your preparation of my father's funeral.  His passing being quite unexpected really left us all very emotional and unprepared for such a devastating loss.  Your compassion, generosity and professionalism really helped us get through that first week.

I truly appreciate everything and thank-you from the bottom of my heart.

Best Regards Always,

To Richie,

My family and I wish to thank you and your family for your sincere concern and professionalism during the passing of our Mother.  We were able to see our Mom as if she was asleep when she was the picture of health.  To remember her in that light made her passing more easier for our family and for that alone we will always be grateful.

Dear Richard,

I never thought I would be writing a thank-you note to a Funeral Director.  Thanks so much for making my mother look so beautiful.  I was with her everyday for the last 14 years and I could not believe it was her anymore.  I know when she arrived in New Jersey she probably even looked worse.  You are truly an artist.  I feel my mother is in heaven.  You put such a peaceful smile and expression on her face.  Thank you for giving us the every reason to keep the casket open, it really helped me and the funeral was wonderful.  God has truly given you a gift.  The gift you have helps folks in the beginning of the grieving process.

Connie Altobelli

Dear Randy,

Thank you for all your help.  Without you, we never would have been able to attend to all the necessary details.  It was a fine and dignified service so worthy of my Mom.  I truly appreciate all your effort and of course, your lovely boys too


Dear Randy,

Many thanks for making Mom's funeral represent the "Marie" we all knew and loved.  Your attention to detail and concern for our family made a difficult situation much easier to bear.  The events of the day went seamlessly because of your thoughtfulness and concern.  I don't ever remember having to make a decision.  You allowed Tom and I to visit with our guests and share in the wonderful memories of Mom.  Thank you!

Michele Pangaro Patrick

Dear Richard,

Thank you so much for the beautiful placard of Joe's obituary.  It was surely a surprise and appreciated so much.  My best to your family and thank you for your services.

Dear Richard and staff of Riotto Funeral Home,

Your care, concern and compassion was so evident the day my sister and I came to make pre-arrangements.  This was my first experience "making arrangements."  You made me feel as if I was dealing with family.  You made the entire experience as stress-free as possible considering there was a black-out and a snow storm.  I was very impressed with all the personal time and attention we received.  

Thank you,
Joan Veltri

Dear Richard & Randy,

On behalf of my parents, Audrey and Paul, my brothers Michael and James and my sister Jane, I want to thank you both for the beautiful funeral you so lovingly arranged for my Aunty Anne.  You gave her a wonderful gift: the gift of looking her best to say farewell to her family and friends.   And you gave all of us the chance to see her one last time looking the way we will always remember her, as the beautiful elegant woman she was.

Having attended many wakes at Riotto's, I know that your work is of the highest caliber.  But I must tell you, Richard, that all of us felt that Anne looked exceptionally beautiful, and we know that we have you to thank for your dedication to your profession.  It is truly an art to be able to restore a person to her former lovely self after a long illness.  We feel you went above and beyond and to merely say "thank you" seems inadequate.  I hope I have been able to convey to you the depth of our appreciation.  Thank you so much for your heartfelt efforts.

Randy, we could not have had a more compassionate or caring person help us to make all of the arrangements.  My parents and I were very upset, and you made us feel totally at home and at ease and made the entire process painless and effortless.  You took care of every detail and all went beautifully from the wake, to the funeral, to the cemetery.  I can't tell you how comforting it was to have you, our friend, take care of these arrangements.  I really can't imagine going through the wake and funeral arrangements with a total stranger.  Anne's funeral was the last thing we ever did for here and it feels wonderful to know that it was first class, all the way.

Saying good-bye to a family member is always difficult.  Thank you both for making Anne's farewell a beautiful and meaningful remembrance of her long and vibrant life.

With deepest appreciation,
Janet Gregory
Family of Anne Kalynowycz


Thank you so much for helping my sister Roseann and my family in our time of need. You are a true friend and we will never forget this.
