Stickel Mortuary has been an integral part of the Mojave community since the 60s. Richard William Stickel relocated his family to Mojave, California, in the 60s. He went on to purchase the local mortuary and an ambulance service in 1961. Mr. Stickel served the Kern County community for over 40 years. He was also very much a part of the local community chambers and events. He was known as a caring, compassionate and kindhearted man who was dedicated to serving everyone with dignity and respect.

In 2014, Stickel Mortuary became part of the Dignity Memorial® network of cemetery, funeral and cremation services in California. To this day, we honor the tradition that Mr. Stickel originally created by serving the families of Mojave and the surrounding areas with compassion and service excellence every single day.
