History of Burgee-Henss-Seitz Funeral Home, Inc.
In 1899, Horace Burgee and his son, Horace F. Burgee, started what is now the Burgee-Henss-Seitz Funeral Home, Inc., by making funeral arrangements for people in the Hampden neighborhood of Baltimore.
From generation to generation, the Burgee family has proudly upheld their commitment to the Hampden community. From 1940 to 1998, Horace F. Burgee, Jr. ran the funeral home with his daughter, Lynn Henss, and his son-in-law, Walter Henss. A fifth generation was added to the funeral home in 1988 with the great-great grand daughter of Horace Burgee, Tracey Carpenter and her husband, Mike Carpenter.
In 1999, the Burgee family merged with the A. Alan Seitz Funeral Home to help continue serving the families of Hampden.
Today, the Henss family and Carpenter family still manage the funeral home today, representing the fourth and fifth generations of the Burgee family. The Burgee family began with a commitment to a high standard of service, and throughout our history, we have continued to lead and innovate while maintaining those high standards of service. Everyone at the Burgee-Henss-Seitz Funeral Home, Inc. is proud to uphold this heritage and commitment to our community.
Today, we’re a proud member of the Dignity Memorial® network of more than 1,600 funeral, cremation and cemetery providers.
