Leonard Zielinski

Owner, Funeral Director

"Life is worth celebrating. Our mission at Northlake Funeral Home is to walk alongside you through the difficult time of loss. From the moment you make contact with us, you will be treated like family. 

We are honored to serve your family and will provide this service with quiet dignity and integrity. 

You have my word." - Leonard Zielinski

Leonard began his career early in life, as a graduate of Worsham College of Mortuary Science. He served families at the Nelson Funeral Home in Park Ridge from 1985 until 2013.

From 2009 through 2014, Leonard served on the Illinois Funeral Directors Association board and was president in 2012. Currently, he serves as president of the Cook County Funeral Directors Association.

As an industry trade funeral director with an acquired embalming skill, from 2013 to 2020,  Leonard assisted colleagues with their funeral homes along with serving families that sought him out.

With an aspiration to always own his own funeral home, in June 2020, Leonard was able to acquire Northlake Funeral Home, a 50 year business owned by the Connell Family. 

It is here, he continues to serve the needs of the community with compassion and integrity.
