Quality services

Standard reception venue at Racine, Robert & Gauthier Funeral HomeWhen you choose our funeral home, you can rest assured that our personnel will do everything in its power to support your bereaved family. We offer a range of quality services in an environment of care and compassion. Each person is unique, so should be their funeral. Our services are personalized to highlight a career, a hobby, an art or a passion. Being close to our families has allowed us to see the value of the little things in everyone's life.

With Racine, Robert & Gauthier Funeral Home, it is quite normal to enter the room or a service and find a bus stop, a sewing machine, a tractor, popcorn, a movie, a cat. .. in fact, whatever you want to emphasize and celebrate from the life of your loved one or your own.

Cremation services

We specialize in cremation services that honor loved ones in personalized ways, and families love our transparent pricing. With expertise in scattering ashes and a friendly team who pays attention to every detail, we provide service that is second to none.

More and more people are choosing cremation over traditional burial, but most aren’t familiar with the many options:

  • a cremation without a funeral or memorial service of any kind.
  • a funeral with your loved one present, followed by cremation.
  • a cremation followed by a scattering, cemetery memorialization or celebration of life—or all three.

For those who wish for a more momentous memorial, Neptune Memorial Reef is an underwater cremation garden off the coast of Florida. A Celestis Memorial Spaceflight takes ashes into space for a little while or forever.

There are many options for cremation—and they're not all equal. Here's what you can expect when you choose us for your loved one's cremation:

  • Custody of care guaranteed. Our custody-of-care program helps safeguard the identification of your loved one from the time we bring them into our care until the time we return them to your family. We check, cross-check and check again, every step of the way.
  • Exclusive custody of your loved one. We use only crematories owned and operated by Dignity Memorial® providers or trusted partners. Once your loved one is in our custody or that of a trusted partner, they’re in our care until they’re returned to your family.
  • Licensed, certified, conscientious staff. All Dignity Memorial crematory operators are licensed and certified by Cremation Association of North America, or CANA. Only one person at a time is cremated, and the cremation chamber is thoroughly cleaned before the next person is cremated.
