History

Special exterior at Halverson, Stone & Myers MortuaryHalverson, Stone & Myers Mortuary has been an important part of our community since its founding as Halverson-Leavell Mortuary in 1954 when Henry Halverson and his brother-in-law, Albert "Babe" Leavell, decided to expand their successful San Pedro mortuary business into the Torrance area. As was common of the time, Halverson-Leavell Mortuary was opened right across the street from Stone & Myers Mortuary, which had been serving the community of Torrance since 1921.

In 1983, Stone & Myers Mortuary teamed together with Halverson-Leavell Mortuary to combine their many years of experience serving the community into Halverson, Stone & Myers Mortuary. The newer, more modern Halverson-Leavell location was chosen to house the newly christened Halverson, Stone & Myers Mortuary with its majestic 50-foot copper steeple. Our beautiful architecture even helped place our facility on the local Historic Homes Walk.

"When someone receives the unexpected news of a loved one's passing, the weight of heartbreak and sorrow are heavy and unfathomable. A memorial service must be planned and for someone like me who was clueless on where to begin, my best friend and I started calling around for quotes from different funeral homes. This was probably my third phonce call and I had the pleasure to speak with a woman named Gilda, also known as Lety. To begin, her voice was calming. She was delightful to speak with and responded to my inquiries with detail and professionalism. During the planning process of choosing the package that was best suitable for my needs, Lety was so patient and took the time to answer all of my questions. After being introduced to Robert, he too was a pleasure to speak with. He and Lety were great with following-up and following through with every detail. During our family's visit to the funeral home for my husband's live ID viewing, Robert and Lety were warm, understanding and empathetic. The care center at the funeral home took great care of my husband's body. He was clean, presentable and very well taken care of. The room in which we sat in to view his body was well kept and maintained. I felt a sense of peace throughout the room. For the cremation process, I was given detailed information every step of the way. I was informed when his body would be transported and I was also given the date and approximate time in which my husband would be cremated. These details allowed my children and I to be spiritually in sync with one another, hence making the experience very meaningful. For the memorial service, our funeral director, Lety, made accomodations for all my requests with ease. It was an amazing service. The outdoor facility was perfect due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. We followed social distancing guidelines and everything happened according to plan. Even after my husband's celebration of life, Robert extended the great service in filling our keepsake items with his ashes. The care and hospitality I received from the team was extraordinary and far exceeded every expectation. I am so grateful for this team. Without any doubt or hesitation, I would highly recommend Halverson, Stone & Myers to any of my family and friends!"

"The Perez family has used Stone and Myers for all of our needs, for over 20 years. It is comforting to know that a long standing institution can be counted on to continue to address our needs in a time of sorrow. That includes our extended families and other surnames to many to mention. It is assuring when you see that building and you dont want to have to call on them, but when you do, they are there at our service. We have never been disappointed. Stoney and Myers is a staple to the City of Torrance. The definition of Stone and Myers, Torrance, is professionalism."

"Halverson Stone & Myers are the best mortuary to entrust our departed loved ones. They're not only for money but to assist and care for you and the departed during the most difficult times. I actually had inquired to the popular mortuaries, Before contacting Halverso, Stone & Myers, but NONE of them comes close to HS&M. One lady from the popular mortuary even told me that I only have 30 minutes for the viewing and I told her, our friends are coming from San Diego and if they got caught in the traffic, they might not view my husband, to which she replied 'that is our policy'. You are grieving and this is not the attitude you want to receive. Then I called Halverson, they assured me of the NO pressure viewing from 10am to 3pm. I was so happy more so when Letty and Robert assured me that if needs arises, they can still extend the time for additional 30 minutes. These people are the ones that is most needed during our difficult times. My visitors at the viewing were all praised to HS&M and they will recommend and use this company if need arises. I got referred to by someone who's mother was under the care of HS&M and they were right. Now, I will proudly recommend this company to everybody. Thank you HS&M. Please love the people you have, they are your company's most valued asset."

"Halverson Stone and Myers provided so much help guidance, and respect for my family during the most difficult time in our lives. From the time of our loss through the service, and to the scattering of ashes they took care of everything, and even changed things to make everything just perfect for our family. I can't thank them, and their staff enough for all that they did for us."
