Why Choose a Family-Owned Funeral Home?

The funeral profession, like many American industries, has a long and proud history of personal service provided by families with deep roots in the local community, and a deep commitment to upholding professional standards.  Some of the oldest, continuously operated businesses in the country are family-owned funeral homes.

A Singular Focus

All of our attention is devoted to making our funeral home the best is can be in terms of satisfying the needs of our friends and neighbors.  We are not distracted nor bound by corporate mandates. We are more flexible. More responsive to your needs.

Personal Pride.

This is our business.  You can be assured we take great personal pride in keeping our facility and our vehicles in top condition.  We are also proud of our staff, and regularly pursue continuing education to maintain the highest level of professional services.

A Long-Term Commitment

It is very important to us to not only fill your current needs, but to build a relationship so you will return to us in the future.  We have a long-term commitment to this community.  When a family suffers the loss of a loved one, it can be comforting to know your funeral director.  We take every opportunity to be involved in our community and to create the kind of personal relationships that will allow us to provide the individualized, sensitive service your family deserves.   When you need us, we will be there for you.

We Will Always Be Here When You Need Our Care.

Whether you need to consult with us about prearrangements, would like more information about a topic like cremation options or funeral costs, please call.  And especially, when you need our immediate assistance at the time of a death, we are available 24 hours a day.  We are part of your community.  We are family.
