History of Goetz Funeral Home
Goetz Funeral Home enjoys a rich history of serving families in Seguin and the surrounding community for more than 100 years.

The Goetz story began in 1906 when Franz Weisshopff started a combination "Bath, Barber & Undertaking" establishment on Nolte Street, sharing the block with the Post Office and Nolte National Bank (now the Wells Fargo building).

Weisshopff later sold the business to well-known Seguin resident Max Starcke, a local banker who went on to become Mayor of Seguin and later was chosen by Lyndon B. Johnson to be the first manager of the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA). Starcke acted as a silent partner in the funeral home and left the day-to-day operations to Paul Goetz.

After dropping the "Bath & Barber" businesses, the firm moved to the 300 block of Austin Street just north of the Aumont Hotel. This location housed both the "Paul Goetz Undertaking Company" and "Paul Goetz Art & Supply" shop. In 1932, the current location opened to the public at 713 N. Austin Street. The building was constructed by Henry L. Weiss, Jr., a prominent builder of many structures and homes in the Seguin area. At this point the firm also began providing ambulance service for the community which continued until the mid-1970s. In 1960 a chapel was added, completing the building as it stands today.
