Verified Customer Reviews

Since 2005, many of our customers have taken the time to tell us how we did each year via our Voice of the Customer program. Our star ratings and comments from families come directly from these surveys.

"For our family, we had recently lost my sister-in-law and brother 30 days apart. Then our mother left us 10 days after my brother. The Funeral Director Jordan, was extremely kind and caring throughout the process as we planned to celebrate mom's life. He was keenly aware of what we had been though, and we are grateful. Besides the caring they demonstrated, they did a wonderful job on mom. She would have been proud."

"Jordan was very compassionate, understanding, patient, and professional. He answered every question we had, and some that we didn't even think to ask. He made the planning process smooth and seamless, and explained everything in great detail. The funeral home itself is beautiful, and the chapel was very spacious and accommodating. I would absolutely recommend Arch L. Heady and Son Funeral Home & Cremation Services to anyone faced with the loss of a loved one."
