About Edward J. Sheehy, Jr. CFSP, CPC, CCO Edward J. Sheehy, Jr. was born and raised in Derby by Edward and Rosemarie (Pagliaro) Sheehy, Sr. He graduated from Derby High School in 1984 as the Class President and a standout three sport athlete. He also worked part time during his high school years at the funeral home and saw how the families appreciated all the help they were given. Those experiences were the clinching decision to attend and receive his Mortuary Science Degree from Hudson Valley College in Troy, NY. The experiences he received at school helped him propel his career when he returned in 1987 to the Riverview Funeral Home in Shelton, CT which Ed's uncle Joseph Pagliaro, Sr. established in 1968.
In 1999 the business was expanded to include the Edward F. Adzima Funeral Home in Derby, CT. Ed became the president of both the Riverview Funeral Home and Edward F. Adzima Funeral Home in 2004 and shares ownership with his cousins, Joseph A. Pagliaro, Jr. and Michelle and Brett Haywood. The challenges in his early career along with long conversations with his uncle about how the funeral business is changing and evolving and the need to keep adapting and staying ahead of the changes was the driving force behind his theme. He always strives to be the best which drives him to continue to listen and learn to work hard and never give up on obtaining the unobtainable ultimate goal. Day to Day Ed wants to carve a path wide enough to ease the burden on the families he serves and help guide all who are around him.
He is recognized as a Certified Funeral Service Practitioner (CFSP) through the Academy of Professional Funeral Service Practice. His also received the CPC (Certified Planning Consultant) and CCO (Certified Cremation Operator) designations from the National Funeral Directors Association.
