History

Lobby at Dengler, Roberts, Perna Funeral HomeGeorge J. Roberts and Sons Funeral Home was founded in 1927 by George J. Roberts Sr. on the west side of Buffalo, where it remained for more than 20 years. His son, George Jr., moved the business to 2400 Main St. in 1948. The Main Street facility continued operation under the leadership of George's other sons, G. Brian Roberts and Gary M. Roberts, until 2001, when the funeral home was relocated to Delaware Avenue in Kenmore.

The current facility, located on Transit Road in East Amherst, was newly built in 1996 by G. Brian Roberts to provide quality, personalized service to East Amherst communities. Dengler, Roberts, Perna Funeral Home is centrally located to conveniently serve the families of Amherst, Clarence, Clarence Center, Getzville and Harris Hill.

"It was so nice that we were able to bring in my husband's collection of '57 Chevy's. The staff provided us with 5 poster boards in advance so we could post pictures and letters. It was wonderful to be able to see the revolving video of my husband and family members. What was extremely helpful was being able to eat between visitation hours in their restaurant styled room. No one needed to rush home and rush back. It gave us more time to be together. They even supplied a caterer! The food was fabulous!"

"Stephen Riordan was extremely helpful during this difficult time. He explained the whole process to us in detail and answered all our questions. He contacted the church concerning arrangements and Banchettis regarding the funeral luncheon. They brought the flower arrangements that weren't used at the cemetery, to Banchettis along with all of our mementos of our Mother. We didn't have to worry about anything but celebrating our Mothers life with family and friends"

"I want to say that I was not sure what to expect with the visitation for my husband since he was creamated, We brought some of the items that belonged to Mike, so that the set up could be personal, My hope was that by the memory setup for Mike that they would be able to know who he was and what was important to him. Everyone was so pleased with the setup, it was noted by a vistor that did not really know Mike, her relfection was 'I did not really know Mike, but the memory set up for him gave me a very good reflection of who Mike was'. So my heartfelt gratitude goes out to everyone that helped make a diffcult and heart breaking time for me and my family, as good or better than it could have been. Thank you"
