Signage at Dengler, Roberts, Perna Funeral HomeEstablished in 1948, the funeral home was originally owned and operated by William A. Rolling and his family until 1989 when the funeral business and property were bought by the Dengler family. The Dengler family relocated their existing funeral business from Main Street in Buffalo to Delaware Avenue in Kenmore. In 1999, the Dengler and Roberts families merged their funeral home businesses establishing the Dengler & Roberts Funeral Home with locations in Kenmore and Amherst.

In August 2007, the Perna family joined the funeral home group and in July 2009, the funeral home was renamed to Dengler, Roberts, Perna Funeral Home to reflect the long history of exceptional funeral service established by each family.

In October 2015, the Dengler, Roberts, Perna Funeral Home moved to our current facility located at 3070 Delaware Avenue in the Village of Kenmore. The relocation provided the opportunity to expand our footprint, adding a grand entrance, wheelchair accessibility, a hospitality room and advanced technologies in each chapel.

Today, the group has locations throughout Western New York including Kenmore, Williamsville and East Amherst where we continue to provide professional, compassionate funeral and cremation services to those who need them.

"Gary Roberts and staff are just great people to work with. They are both professional and warm in their handling of everything. Gary arranged for my brother in law's wake and funeral two years ago which, in my opinion, was done extremely well, from the wake to the luncheon after the funeral. Everything went better than anticipated.And my mom just recently passed away and decided to donate her body to the UB Medical School. I again reached out to Gary to facilitate a memorial service and to arrange for her ashes to be buried along with my deceased father in the future. You folks will handle whatever our needs are and will do it well, that I know, which is why I highly recommend your services. Sincere thanks."
