Apprentice Funeral Director/Embalmer
Cory Kideckel is our newest member to the Cataudella Funeral Home family. He is currently serving as an apprentice funeral director and embalmer, already having three years of experience.
Currently attending Funeral Institute of the Northeast in Norwood, MA and working full time at Cataudella's, Cory does not have a lot of down-time. His two days off during the week allow him to travel down towards the south shore to attend classes, and his evenings are spent studying and being on-call for work. Dedicated and hardworking, his expected date of graduation is fall 2017. He is eager to serve this community as a fully licensed professional funeral director.
Cory is the son of a Rabbi and a director of a day care and a brother to two siblings. He graduated from Medway High School and immediately realized his desire to help people. He is well-rounded, has the nicest disposition, and therefore, fits in nicely at Cataudella's as the staff is solely focused on helping people in their time of need.
Cory is driven to achieve his goals in life and he is well on his way. He recently became husband to our other apprentice, Catherine Grigore, now known as Catherine Kideckel. We welcome both of them to Cataudella's and wish them the best.
John Rose has been a loyal dressman at Cataudella’s for many
years. Primarily here on Saturdays, his time is committed to the construction
business during the week, specifically Torromeo Industries. Despite his
full-time employment and working at Cataudella’s, John still carves out time to
spend with his wife and three grandchildren. Whether it is spending summer
vacations in Maine with family, hunting locally or in the Midwest, or hitting
the links, John always finds time for enjoyment. His two dogs, a Minpin and a
Chiweenie, offer more fun than even the name of their breeds!
A lifelong resident of Methuen, John graduated from Methuen
High School in 1988 and went on to pursue the construction field.
