About

Committed to personalized service

Allnutt Funeral Service – Estes Park has provided funerals, cremations and personalized memorials since the 1990s. Many of our associates have worked at our funeral home for decades. We are respected members of the community who have spent our careers caring for friends and neighbors, and we carry a true passion for guiding families through their most difficult moments.

We believe that it’s important to take the time to acknowledge the life of a loved one. We design services that celebrate the individuality of a person, taking care to incorporate as many personal touches as possible. We care for people of all backgrounds, and because Colorado is a melting pot with residents from all over the world, we specialize in funerals and memorials that are tailored to unique lives. From an Irish wake to a Native American outdoor ceremony, from a Buddhist service to a cowboy memorial to an elite veteran’s sendoff, we’ve done it all with grace and style.

One-of-a-kind funeral home, one-of-a-kind community

It’s impossible to miss Allnutt Funeral Service – Estes Park. Located in a log cabin-style building on Graves Road, the funeral home combines rustic authenticity with modern mortuary amenities. It is a welcoming place to plan a funeral or cremation and celebrate life. Friendly associates and nature-inspired decor greet guests and provide a familiar atmosphere for each family who walks through the doors. Modest in size, the funeral home accommodates visitations and memorial services of up to 60 people.

With just 6,300 people, this small Northern Colorado community is special. Nestled on the Big Thompson River and surrounded by mountains, the town is home to incredible local musicians. We are lucky to have access to talented string quartets, big bands, cowboy crooners and bagpipe players. We love bringing in these musicians when requested.

Private crematory access

Cremation is an increasingly common choice, but not everyone knows that cremation can also include a beautiful ceremony or even a viewing with visitation. From a cremation without a funeral service to a cremation with a memorial that follows, we help you understand the variety of arrangements that are possible and partner with you to create a unique service for your loved one.

Though Allnutt Funeral Service – Estes Park does not have a crematory on-site, we perform all our cremations at either our Loveland location or our Longmont location. That means your loved one never leaves our care.

We are here for you

Our mission is to make funeral planning as easy as possible. That’s why we will come to your home to make your funeral arrangements or those of your loved one. Whether you are planning a funeral ahead of time or need immediate assistance, call us anytime, day or night.

History

The Allnutt Funeral Service story began when Thomas Macy left Nantucket at the age of 9 as a stowaway on a whaling vessel. Following service in the Civil War, he became a pioneer. He traveled as far as the Colorado mountains and settled in Greeley. He began working at Linn Grove Cemetery and became the first county coroner in 1884. In 1886, he founded T.G. Macy Undertaking.

By 1920, T.G. Macy Undertaking had four downtown Greeley locations. In 1918, one of the properties burned down. That’s when Macy built the property at 702 13th St., where our sister location, the Macy Chapel, stands today.

A love that inspired a legacy

Fredric Allnutt arrived in Colorado from England in the late 1890s. He met and married Macy's stepdaughter, Anna Wolfenden, in 1902 and joined the family business that same year.

The flu pandemic hit the area hard in 1918. The first of two H1N1 influenza viruses killed an estimated 50 million people worldwide, including many in the Greeley area. Fredric and Anna’s son John was only 15 when he was needed to drive a hearse to and from Linn Grove, Evans and Eaton cemeteries up to six times a day. He officially joined the company in 1920, the same year Frederic and Anna built their house on the 13th Street property in Greeley. It remained a personal residence until the 1980s, when the company converted it to a reception center.

Brothers building the business

The business hummed along, and after graduating from the University of Denver in 1950, John’s brother Jack attended mortuary school in Dallas. He joined the family business in 1951.In 1956, John and Jack’s brother Bill joined the business after a stint in the Air Force. Around that time, the brothers bought the company’s Eaton location (which they sold in 2009).

They made Goodrich Mortuary, on East Olive Street in Fort Collins, part of the Allnutt group in 1984.

Bill’s son, Rick, joined the company in 1985. That’s about the time Allnutt bought Hunter Chapel in Loveland. The next year, they bought Estes Park Mortuary.

The company added Reager Funeral Home and Crematory to its portfolio in 1994. That same year, Allnutt Funeral Service began operating its first care center. (That property was sold in 2011, but by that time, the care center had already been relocated to Hunter Chapel.)

Estes Park Mortuary got a new chapel in 1995. A new Fort Collins location—the current location—was built in 1996.

Growth continues

In 2007, the family purchased its first funeral home/cemetery location, Resthaven Funeral Home and Memory Gardens, in Fort Collins. Seeing a need for a place for people to memorialize their pets, they added a pet cemetery.

That same year, on March 16, the beloved Jack Allnutt died. The family converted the original family home from a reception center to Jack’s Place, a community meeting place and temporary lodging for those attending funerals or visiting sick loved ones nearby.

In 2012, Allnutt Funeral Service acquired Callahan-Edfast Mortuary and Crematory in Grand Junction, expanding its reach to the families of the Western Slope. Additionally, the company bought Grant Mortuaries, in Craig and Meeker, Colorado.

Today, Allnutt Funeral Service is part of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers. Family proprietors Rick Allnutt and Susan Hughes and Bill and Dee Allnutt carry on the family enterprise, which includes 12 locations in western and northern Colorado and western Nebraska.
