Patrick J. Harrison – Licensed Funeral Director NY and PA
Celebrating over 122 years of personal service in 2020, Harrison Rasmussen Funeral Home, located in Baryville is led by Patrick J Harrison, a third generation funeral director. He is assisted by his wife Peg Harrison and together they are dedicated to providing caring competent service to all.
Our Commitment to our friends, our neighbors, and our community, began in 1898 when a 29 year old Danish immigrant realized that the people of this area needed someone who would provide the kind of professional service families desire during times of bereavement. Niels Peter Rasmussen was that immigrant.
