Welcome to the Dobrinick Funeral Home
John M. Dobrinick, originally from Jeannette PA bought the funeral home from William N. Daugherty in 1974. The location of the funeral home at that time was at 429 Duquesne Avenue in Trafford. John’s son, Thomas J. Dobrinick, became a licensed funeral director in 1994 and joined his dad in the business. They ran the business out of the Duquesne Ave. location for 29 years. The business stayed there until 2003 when M & D Machine Shop (formerly Mikan Motors) was purchased at 702 7th St., just 3 blocks away.
The New Facility
This building was converted into the new funeral home in 9 months time. The new funeral home opened for business on March 27, 2004.
