John Winfield Jr. President
John is a third generation descendant of a family rooted in funeral service. He is also the President and owner of the Cremation Society of Rhode Island. Mr. Winfield was one of the first funeral directors and crematory operators in Rhode Island to see the importance of providing cremation services directly to Rhode Island consumers. To enact this foresight, he founded the Cremation Society of Rhode Island in 1993 and has been providing simple, dignified and affordable cremation services to consumers for the past twenty five years.
John is a graduate of Scituate High School, the New England Institute of Applied Arts and Sciences, and Bryant College with a BA in Business Administration. He served on the Scituate Town Council for twelve years, is a past president of the Scituate Art Festival Committee, and has served as a member of several fraternal organizations.
John grew up in Scituate and continues to reside in the town with Linda, his wife of twenty five years, and their son, Jonathan. His son, Nicholas, also resides in Scituate. John is an animal lover who supports the causes for shelter pets. He has two rottweilers that were adopted through rescue groups and three cats adopted from the local shelter.
