Our Coon Rapids funeral home

Our caring funeral directors in Coon Rapids will help you create a tribute that honors your loved one with dignity and respect. We understand that losing someone is a personal experience, and we will guide you in creating a funeral or memorial service that celebrates life and showcases a person's passions and individuality.

WHV 2020 - Level 3We honor veterans

At Gearhart Funeral Home, we understand the unique needs of America’s veterans and their families. As a Level Three Founding Community Partner with We Honor Veterans, we have a staff who is knowledgeable in the benefits available to veterans and their families. With respect, integrity and dignity, we will walk you through the steps of creating a veteran's memorial service that truly honors the life and sacrifice of your loved one.

We also take pride in honoring other groups who play a vital role in the welfare of our community. Our sponsorship of The Nightingale Tribute, which recognizes nurses for their years of service, is just one example.

Spacious chapel for groups

Gearhart Funeral Home welcomes groups of all sizes. Our spacious chapel accommodates both small and large gatherings. We also offer amenities such as catering so you can spend more time with friends and family.

As a Dignity Memorial® provider, we have designed all of our services to help families through this emotional time. Our Coon Rapids funeral home associates provide the local attention you expect and the value you deserve. We'll be with you every step of the way, offering compassion and personal care.

Jackie the funeral home therapy dog

Experiencing loss and grief can be one of the most emotional, somber moments of life. Jackie, our beloved funeral home therapy dog, offers comfort to family and friends during this difficult time. Jackie’s steady and unwavering companionship helps to relieve stress and anxiety and provide a sense of consolation and calm to an otherwise stressful experience. Whether families are preparing to say their final farewells or going through the grief process after loss, Jackie is here to provide additional support and unconditional love when you need it most.

A special tribute to nurses

The Nightingale Tribute honors registered or licensed practical nurses at their memorial services. Presented by the Nurses Honor Guard, volunteer nurses who give back to their profession by providing this special ceremony for their colleagues, the tribute includes a white rose, the Nightingale lamp and a final call to duty. If your loved one was a nurse and you’d like to include The Nightingale Tribute as part of their service, please let us know.

"Gearhart Funeral Home was really there for us during a difficult time. Ryan was extremely professional and kind and very good about updating us about any changes, etc. The kindness and care that we felt while preparing for our brother's funeral, was exceptional. I would highly recommend this funeral home."

"The staff and services at Gearheart Funeral Home was exceptional. No one wants to have to use funeral homes, losing someone we love is devastating. Somehow, through that devastation Gearheart Funeral Home made the process bearable. They made sure everything I wanted for my loved one was done and that my needs as a grieving loved one were always met and never minimized. I hope not to have to use a funeral home again in the near future, but if the need should arise, there is no other funeral home I would choose."
