Our Family

Three generations of service, excellence and commitment in the cemetery monuments and memorial industry 


The memorial business is all about family. It is about our customers--families looking for the best way to memorialize a family member they’ve lost. It is about the Milano’s—a family with three generations committed to helping other families memorialize their loved ones. And it is about our talented team of associates—our extended family—who come to work every day with a smile, excited to extend their hands and hearts to everyone who walks through our doors. ‘Family” is the reason people from Northeast Ohio to California have come to Milano for their memorials and why our company has attracted the best memorial designers and craftspeople from around the corner and around the world.

The Milano Family

When Milano Monuments first opened in 1969, Vincent Milano Sr. and his wife Marie focused on customer care and service as their first priority. Three generations later, that is still our focus. Vincent’s wife Marie and their children, Jim and Maria, carried on the Milano tradition following his retirement. Though Maria passed away in 2012, her loving presence continues through her children Michael and Alecia, now part of the Milano Monuments team.  

In loving memory of Maria Milano (1965-2012)

Maria MilanoMilano Monuments lost a cherished member of our family in 2012. Maria Milano was only 47 years old when she passed away from cancer. She will be deeply missed and long remembered--by her family, friends, and anyone who was lucky enough to experience her bright smile and sunny disposition. Maria’s parents, Vincent Sr. and Marie, founded Milano Monuments, her brother Jim is co-owner, and her son Michael and daughter Alecia are an important part of the Milano team. Our loss is heaven’s gain. Maria was the brightest light of all!
