Welcome to Michael E. Brown Funeral Services, LLC.


Thank you for visiting our website, we hope the information provided is helpful and if you need further advice or immediate assistance, you may contact us anytime at 315-655-4615. Located in Cazenovia, New York, we are an independently owned and operated funeral home. Our courteous staff consisting of professional licensed funeral director/co-owner, Michael E. Brown, office manager/co-owner, Ross A. Belfiore along with the support of professional licensed  funeral directors and non-licensed staff are attentive to your needs and dedicated to helping people get through difficult times. We are a member of the New York State Funeral Director's Association, Central New York Funeral Director's Association and perform with a high standard of ethical values to the families we serve. We offer a clean, modern facility, an on-site selection room and plenty of off street parking to accommodate large gatherings.


In August of 2016, after continued requests from friends and family, we decided to open an office in the City of Fulton. Our office located at 34 South First Street in the Lower Falls Development Complex in Fulton allows us a place to meet with families to arrange funeral services. We offer a selection room where families can choose funeral merchandise such as caskets, burial vaults, cremation urns, funeral stationary and video tributes-most of which can be personalized to reflect the life of those we are celebrating. Although our Fulton office is not a funeral home (our New York State registered funeral home is in Cazenovia), we can arrange funeral, graveside or memorial services which can be conducted off site at a church, cemetery or location of your choice. Our services are less expensive and our compassionate service is superior to our competitors. Let our dedication and experience work to help create a meaningful service for you, your loved one and your family. 

For more information about our funeral home, we invite you to click onto the "About Us" tab at the top left corner of this page. There you will find biographies of our staff, our General Price List, Funeral Merchandise and useful information regarding the services we offer.

          Death is a part of life, but it is very hard on those left behind. Everyone wishes their loved ones could stay with them forever. With faith, it will happen. After taking care of my Dad every day for just over a month as he battled cancer, his time came. Even though I knew it was coming, he waited for and passed on my birthday. He gave me the best presents he could. Michael Brown was the first phone call I made. I had been in touch with him a couple times before, but he didn’t care what time it was; he came right away. He found his way out to the "Boon docks." Mike and Pete let me have a birthday beer with all who were there before taking Dad. The next few days were kind of a blur, but any questions I had, Mike answered, again the time didn’t matter. He would even send friendly reminders, like “Did you call the florist?” The service was off site, but Mike made sure everything was ready. Everything went so smoothly. He did so well with my Dad, but he did awesome with us, the family, the hardest part of his job. I am a better person for knowing Mike. He truly is a blessing.

                                                                                                                                                 Thank you Mike! God bless. Sue Ellen Jones

Dear Michael and Ross,

          We just want to say thank you for all your help at the time of Steve's passing. You both were there with compassion and answers, so family oriented. God bless you both. We know that your business will be busier than you want to be. Busy is good, but family time together takes priority as you both know. May you both and your families be blessed with the best life has to offer. Until we meet again.

                                                                                                                                                                          Sincerely, The Latocha family

          I just wanted to thank you for your superior services over the last week. Although my father's death was not unexpected, it was very hard to make all the decisions necessary. Mike, you made the process extremely easy for my mother and I. You were very professional, yet, genuine and comforting through every step. Ross introduced himself in the vestibule of the church. He has a very calming and comforting presence about him, too. Please feel free to share this email as a testimony to the high quality of service your funeral home provides the entire family. Professional, caring, genuine, and extremely efficient is how I would describe our experience with your funeral services. We will most definitely look to you in the future.

                                                                                                                                                                                  Sincerely, Melissa Aumell

          When my daughter, Cindy passed away, Michael Brown and Ross Belfiore understood from the beginning our family's grief.  In planning her funeral they asked questions and showed a gentle insight into her special needs when she was alive.  Cindy's funeral service was an absolute celebration of her dear life. As deep as our mourning was, we were able to rejoice in her life.  Her love for us came through in their conversations with the family and their approach to our saying goodbye to Cindy.  Michael, Ross and their staff were professional and so attuned to our needs as we said goodbye one last time.

          We will always be grateful for the wonderful send off for our special Cindy.

                                                                                                                                                                                                  Maria Culkin

          Pat and I want to thank you for all you have done during this difficult time. We appreciate your professionalism and how well prepared everything was for us. Humor used in just the right places, with just the right people made all " things" easier to deal with. Our mom certainly looked like our mom and we will always be grateful. Our family, comforted by the way they were all treated, have only good things to say about their experience with Michael E. Brown Funeral Services. Thank you both.
