Hennessy-Bagnoli-Moore Funeral Home

David M. Moore

David M. Moore

Owner, Funeral Director and Embalmer

David M. Moore is the Owner of Hennessy-Bagnoli-Moore Funeral Home. He was born and raised in Akron’s North Hill and since November of 2015 has moved back to Akron’s North Hill.


David started in funeral service in 1985 washing cars and working calling hours at Hennessy-Bagnoli Funeral Home not knowing that 28 years later he would have the opportunity to purchase the business. It was a job he reluctantly took while participating in Akron’s North High School’s DCT program. After working there just a few short weeks, he knew funeral service was the only career he ever want.


After graduating from North High School in 1986, he went to the University of Akron and then the Pittsburgh Institute of Mortuary Science finishing his schooling in 1993 7th in his class.


In 1996, Hennessy-Bagnoli Funeral Home, a family owned and operated firm since the 1940’s, was sold to funeral home conglomerate, Carriage Services, Inc. out of Houston TX, a corporation known for owning multiple funeral homes. It wasn’t long after Carriage Services,Inc. purchased the firm that it turned the neighborhood’s favorite family owned funeral home into a corporate business and by 2002 most of the North Hill employees were gone and a change needed to be made. 


In April 2002, David accepted a position as a funeral director/embalmer and Managing Partner at Hennessy-Bagnoli Funeral Home where his carrier in funeral service started and gave the funeral home a much needed neighborhood presence. 


On October 1, 2012 Carriage Services decided reduce the number of smaller funeral homes it owned and offered the business to David. On July 22, 2013 the sale of the business was complete, his lifelong dream of owning a funeral home had been fulfilled and the neighborhood’s longest operating funeral home was once again FAMILY OWNED and better than ever. 


In November of 2015, David’s life had come full circle. He and his wife, Tina sold the home they loved in Tallmadge to move back to the community that they serve everyday further enriching their family’s lives with the traditions of North Akron and Cuyahoga Falls.


In his spare time, David enjoys volunteering as an Usher, Extraordinary Minister and Reader for St. Anthony Parish, spending time with his family, riding his Harley Davidson, camping and his Australian Shepard, Tilly.


He was the past president of OFDA's District 8/Summit County Funeral Director's Association, currently OFDA's North East Regional Director, past Financial Secretary of Knights of Columbus Council 3529 and a 4th degree Knights of Columbus.
