Local funeral care and expertise

Our founder, Edward F. Carter, died in 1972, but his legacy lives on. His son, Edward F.

Through hard work, dedication and genuine compassion for our families, the funeral home has grown and flourished. Today, everyone at Edward F.

"After initially contacting the funeral home, I spoke to Meghan about pre-planning. When my Mom passed I only dealt with Mike. We had no service at the funeral parlor. Everything was plain and simple and I interacted with no one but Mike. Everything went on as scheduled with no problems."
