We invite families from all faiths and walks of life to contact us to customize funeral services to your specifications.

Celebration of life services

In addition to traditional funeral services, we can arrange customized celebrations of life. This can mean organizing a motorcade for a Harley-Davidson enthusiast or an organized procession of classic cars for a muscle car lover, perhaps even including a loved one’s own Corvette. The associates at Hillcrest Memorial Park and Mortuary want to showcase your loved one’s life and personality. We are pleased to assist in planning the service of your choosing, whether it is held on-site or at a church, temple, synagogue, outdoors or in another special venue.

Veterans section at Hillcrest Memorial ParkHillcrest Memorial Park and Mortuary is proud to be part of the Bakersfield community. We are honored to attend numerous events in the community, as well as host events at our memorial park. Two of our annual events are our Easter Sunrise Service and Memorial Day Celebration service.

The Easter Sunrise Service is a time of remembering and reminiscing, with more than 1,500 guests in attendance each year. Our Memorial Day Celebration is held in the Hill of Valor section, where monuments and flags from each branch of the armed forces are displayed. Veterans are honored during this service as a small token for all the brave men and women who have served our country.

We also offer a time to come together on Mother's Day, Father's Day, Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead), Veterans Day and our In Remembrance Christmas Service. The community is our very own family, and we consider it our honor to assist and be part of events throughout the year.
