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.

Since 2005, many of our customers have taken the time to tell us how we did each year via our Voice of the Customer program. Our star ratings and comments from families come directly from these surveys.

"My family and I were so glad that we chose a wonderful funeral home for our Dad's Memorial Service. Robert and Leti were so helpful and genuinely sweet at heart. They truly do care, and made our family's planning go well. It was not stressful but very peaceful once the planning was finished. It was a little bit of a bitter sweet feeling because of the fact that my dad has passed away but also sweet because of the kindness of the help of the staff. I recommend this place hands down. The price for the funeral memorial service was also the best price around the Southbay. We are so grateful for this company, please choose them for your funeral home. Thank you again Robert and Leti! God Bless!"
