Dean Alexander

Alexander-Rothwell Funeral Director

In 1924 Reginald H. Tuthill founded his funeral home in Riverhead, NY. Following in Reginald's and father, Fred Alexander's footsteps, Dean A. Alexander has continued to provide service to the surrounding community since 1975.  In 1979, the service area was expanded to include Wading River and the surrounding communities when the Funeral Home opened its doors in Wading River.

Traditions of care, understanding and professionalism are reflected in our Alexander-Rothwell family and staff. We take pride in the fact that the high standards and quality services, which are the cornerstones upon which the family business was built, are still being upheld today.

Kenneth T. Rothwell

Alexander-Rothwell Funeral Director

Ken has been there to assist families through some of the most tragic disasters of modern times.

Whether it is the incomprehensible loss of a child, or the impact of a national tragedy he has found the time to bring solace to others. Ken worked closely with families of victims of the Flight 800 disaster volunteering to transport remains from Long Island to a home in Pennsylvania. He learned a great deal during the aftermath of this crash; and the experience enabled him to assist other families following the horrific loss resulting from the World Trade Center tragedy on 9/11. His dedication and tireless efforts earned him special recognition from the Governor of New York and the Nassau/Suffolk Funeral Directors Association.
