The Settegast-Kopf Company was founded by Ed Settegast and John Kopf in 1901 with a vision to provide the highest standard of funeral service to Houston-area families. Today, nearly 120 years later, The Settegast-Kopf Company@Sugar Creek continues to uphold the tradition of excellence started by our founders.
And though our commitment to exceptional care has never changed, our funeral home always responds to the evolving needs of the community.

A modern funeral home
Our classic brick funeral home, located off the Southwest Freeway, includes a large, bright chapel that has both a baby grand piano and the only Houston-area pipe organ found in a funeral home. Visitation rooms are well-appointed and spacious, so you and your family and friends will be comfortable. Should you wish to host coffee and tea, wine and cheese or even lunch or dinner, we handle food and beverage catering.
Personalized memorial and cremation services
At The Settegast-Kopf Company@Sugar Creek, our industry-leading ways go beyond the funeral home to the services we deliver. We know that each life is different and every family is unique, which is why our funeral home staff are trained to listen carefully and help you design a perfect, personalized memorial service.
Whether you want a basic cremation with a Champagne toast, a full traditional funeral with a cake-and-coffee reception or an imaginative celebration complete with a band, Texas barbecue, full bar and a balloon release, we take care of almost every detail. We are here to help you and your family celebrate a life like no other.
Past meets present
As a member of the Dignity Memorial® network, The Settegast-Kopf Company@Sugar Creek gives you both the warm, familiar attention you expect from a locally-operated funeral home and the benefits you deserve by way of North America's largest network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers.
In the mid-1800s Ed Settegast operated one of the finest livery companies in Houston. John Kopf was a cabinetmaker. In 1901 Ed and John combined their businesses, establishing the first funeral home in Houston.
By 1927 Emma Settegast was operating the funeral home, with the help of John Morrow and her brother, Ed. The business remained in the family until John Morrow bought it in 1963. John ran the business until 1970.
In 1993 The Settegast-Kopf Company expanded to Sugar Land, where we still operate today as The Settegast-Kopf Company@Sugar Creek.
