Funeral Director Offers to Trade Burial Services

Brooklyn funeral director Peter Donanich is offering one lucky contractor a deal worth dying for.

Dohanich put an ad on Craigslist seeking a reliable contractor to put an addition on his apartment in exchange for a full service funeral.

Dohanich, who is licensed in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, says he wants a contractor to build a sitting room off the living room of his ground floor apartment.

In return, Dohanich says he'll provide a full funeral, including cremation or burial, embalming, a coffin, viewing, church service, and even a hearse or limo for loved ones.

The 51-year-old Dohanich admits some may view his ad on Craigslist as bizarre, but he says it's savvy, not spooky.

"Everyone has to adapt to these times...even funeral directors," Dohanich explained to the New York Daily News
