Family Owned


Terry Hennessy II is the proud owner of Hennessy Funeral Home. Terry has spent his whole life in the funeral home business. As a boy, he would spend many days going to work with his dad, Terry Hennessy, Sr. He loved how special it made him feel being with his dad at work.

Terry began working at his dad’s funeral home when he was very young. He mowed grass, planted flowers, pulled weeds, and washed cars. It was a very natural progression for Terry to continue his journey following in his dad’s footsteps to becoming a funeral director, and eventually owning his own funeral home.

Terry attended St. Vincent-St. Mary High School and went on to pursue his BA in Communications from the University of Akron. He then served his 2 year funeral apprenticeship and was soon a licensed funeral director in the State of Ohio.

Terry has a very special quality about him that really helps the families he meets. His life-long commitment to what he does has developed a deep sense of understanding within Terry along with a calm and guiding demeanor that truly sets him apart as exceptional with people. He brings genuine sincerity and care to the families that he serves.
