Our Heritage

It is our belief that Family Owned and Operated still has a place in caring for families in their time of need.  Taylor & Modeen has been serving the families of our neighbors for over 100 years.

Taylor and Modeen's Connecticut location was established by John I. Taylor and Oscar Modeen and began serving the greater Hartford, Connecticut community in 1909.


The second generation, represented by Harold Taylor, joined the Funeral Home in 1933.



Harold was followed by 3rd generation William J. Taylor, President Emeritus.

In 1968 William relocated to Jupiter, Florida with his wife, Ann and their children.  He established The Village Funeral Home in his new hometown and continued the management of Taylor & Modeen's Connecticut location. Today, the Connecticut operation is under the management of 4th generation funeral director,  Andrew Taylor, LFD at our South Main Street location. 



In 1996 William Taylor and his son, 4th generation Andrew Taylor, LFD celebrated the opening of our new  Taylor & Modeen Funeral Home in Jupiter, Florida


Andrew Taylor, LFD split his time between Taylor & Modeen's Florida and Connecticut locations during early years of his career.  He now serves as Vice President and Managing Funeral Director of Taylor & Modeen's Connecticut location.
