Family Testimonials

"Sweet-Woods was so helpful during our family's difficult time. Glenn & Jeanne are wonderful and made the process very easy. They took the time to educate us and discuss our options. The options can be overwhelming. They have photo albums galore to help inspire ideas and were very patient with my indecisiveness! They took care of everything from my concept to organizing and setting the stone

It is a great comfort to have our beautiful stone to celebrate our father's life. I would recommend Sweet-Woods to anyone. I appreciate all your help."

- Guernsey Family

"Thank You for everything you have done for our family during this process. We would have been lost had it not been for all the information, time, and patience that was given to us. My Father's monument turned out beautiful and is exactly what we were looking for."

- Lisa Galloway Baisley

Welcome to Sweet-Woods

Since 1932, Sweet-Woods Memorial Company has provided thousands of families all over Central New York with premium quality memorials, bronze plaques, and mausoleums. This greater Syracuse area located family-owned and operated business was founded with one philosophy in mind: to provide you with the best quality material and workmanship available, at a reasonable price.

Many of our families around Syracuse find that it is easier to plan ahead and purchase their memorial before the time of need. This gives them great peace of mind in knowing that this decision has been made, and will not be a burden for someone else.

A MonuCad computer drafting/stencil cutting system allows our customers the option of assisting in the design layout prior to carving and lettering. Custom designs are available by our artist, Ken Sweet.

Our caring and professional staff will help you step by step with planning your memorial, making a seemingly difficult task much easier. From the design to the delivery and placement, we are here to serve you! See for yourself what a difference we can make.

Sweet-Woods History

In 1932, Arlo Woods of Phoenix, NY started A.R. Woods Memorial Company, at its present location in Phoenix, NY. In 1964, Mr. Woods retired, and sold the company to Richard and Kenneth Sweet. At that time, the Sweets changed the company name to Sweet-Woods Memorial Company. The Sweets continued the tradition of selling superior quality memorials, as well as civic and community memorials, serving all of Central New York. In 1995, the Sweets retired, and sold the company to Glenn and Jeanne Candee, retaining the name of Sweet-Woods Memorial Company.

The Candees expanded their operation in 2000 by purchasing OConnor Memorials, located in Brewerton, NY. Further expansion was made in 2009 when they opened an office in Camillus, NY.

In the fall of 2010, the name of OConnor Memorials was changed to Sweet-Woods Memorial Company, and today, all three locations share the name.
