I would like to send a huge thank you to Steven DiLorenzo for all of his help and compassion he extended to my family during the worst time of our lives. He made us feel that there was nothing we could ask for that he could not take care of for us, and he went above and beyond to show us he cared. We never felt that it was “just another day” for him. The kindness he gave to us was greatly appreciated. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

We are pleased to provide permanent Online Memorials to you and the families we serve. The funerals entrusted to our firm are listed here. If you are unable to visit the Gorton-Menard Funeral Home and Crematory, you can still be with the family in thought by signing the Online Guest Book, expressing your condolences or sharing your most memorable recollection about the deceased. You can also place a memorial donation or send a floral tribute or a sympathy card through our website.

While newspaper obituaries fill needs within the local community, our Online Memorials reach far beyond – locally, nationally, and even globally through the Internet. This service allows family, friends and acquaintances to obtain the information needed to send flowers, memorial contributions and private email to the family.
