G. Robert Sweet Funeral Director

A third-generation funeral director, Rob is proud to carry on his family's tradition. Licensed since 1992, he took over the management responsibilities of the funeral home in 1997.

Rob finds great satisfaction in helping his community. He is on the board of the Hyde Park Chamber of Commerce and also serves on the New York State Funeral Directors Association Tribute Board. Rob is a firm believer in giving back to the community and generously supports local companies and charities with corporate sponsorships and donations.

Rob was raised in Hyde Park and educated in Hyde Park schools.

He still lives in Hyde Park with his wife, Eileen, and enjoys golfing, bicycling, going on walks, and spending time with his two children, Mary-Kate and Matthew, and his dog, a Goldendoodle named George (who is named after his grandfather, the founder of Sweet’s Funeral Home).

James Matus Funeral Director james@sweetsfuneralhome.com

I was honored when I received a call from Rob Sweet and he asked me to join his funeral home. I have known Rob and Mary for many years while working in the Hudson Valley. Their reputation is impeccable.

 

It’s hard to believe that I have been a funeral director for 30 years, 22 years serving various Hudson Valley communities. Despite the daily challenges which include stress, tight deadlines, long hours, and difficult people, I can’t imagine doing anything else.

 

Making a difference in someone’s life is what I like the most. I truly enjoy the people I get to meet. It is a privilege and an honor to become part of each family that I am trying to help.

 

I look forward to continuing a tradition of caring, compassionate service to the families of Hyde Park and surrounding communities. I look forward to getting to know you.
