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 funeral home opened for business on March 27, 2004. The new facility is completely handicapped accessible with no steps or ramps needed to access the facility. It has two parking lots and ample on street parking to accommodate funeral home guests for visitation and services.
We have four visitation rooms, a coffee lounge, children’s play room, large handicapped accessible men’s and women’s restrooms, two large foyers with a two sided fireplace, family conference room and casket/cremation urn selection room.From left to right standing: Mel Buchin, Funeral Associate George Brown, Funeral Associate, Thomas J.
