History

Walter and Bertha Wood founded Wood Funeral Home in Chardon, Ohio, in 1909. Three years later, they relocated to Atwater and purchased the Paul Hamilton Funeral Home. Their son, Robert, assumed an active role in 1925.

In 33, the Wood family opened a funeral home on North Chestnut Street in Ravenna. Three years later, they purchased the former home of Judge I.T. Siddall at the corner of Freedom Street and East Main Street, our current location.

Growth and expansion

Eventually, the Wood family operated locations in Ravenna, Kent, Atwater and Mantua. Jack Wood's step-son, Rob Kortright, later assumed operations and renamed it Wood-Kortright Funeral Homes.

In 2005, Aaron Borkoski became manager and our name changed to Wood-Kortright-Borkoski Funeral Home. As we embark on our next 100 years of service to Ohio families, we promise to maintain the same standards of compassionate care that make us the first choice among local families in a time of need.

We honor veterans

Wood-Kortright-Borkoski Funeral Home understands the unique needs of America’s veterans and their families. As a Level One Founding Community Partner with We Honor Veterans, our staff is knowledgeable in the benefits available to veterans and their families. Military funerals mark a special way to celebrate those who served our country and we are well-versed in arranging funerals with full military honors.

"I found them to be very upfront and honest. Everyone I dealt with was professional and courteous. My phone calls were always returned in a very timely manner when the person I called for was not available, which I very much appreciate. Everything was clearly explained and the follow through was exceptional."
