History of Valley Funeral Home
In 1955, Fred and Frances Kubasak sold their Chicago-based funeral home and moved to Burbank, California, where they began The Valley Funeral Home. The two of them worked side-by-side, along with their sons, Fred Jr. and Michael, until Fred died in 1973. At that time, ownership was passed on to Fred and Michael who grew the business into one of the largest independent firms in the San Fernando Valley.
In 1988, Michael purchased the business and operated the firm until 1997, when he sold the funeral home to an affiliate of Service Corporation International headquartered in Houston, Texas.
