History

Building Exterior at Colonial Funeral HomeJames (Jack) Estes and Hardy Henderson opened Colonial Funeral Home in February 1980. The 2 funeral directors sought to provide an exceptional level of funeral home services to Universal City, Texas, and the surrounding area.

In 1984 Jack became ill, and Hardy took over the business, continuing the pursuit of service excellence. In November 1995, Colonial Funeral Home added a 2nd chapel.

In April 1997, we joined the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers. Throughout our history we have continued to lead innovation in funeral services, while maintaining a high standard of service. Everyone at Colonial Funeral Home is proud to uphold this heritage and commitment to the community.

"Colonial Funeral Home at Universal City, TX, did an outstanding job with my father's recent funeral. My father had pre-paid all he could years ago, so I had minimal decisions to make for his service. They found the music I wanted, put me in touch with a florist, and offered experienced guidance when needed. Family members and friends commented on how pleased they were with the care and details that were so well done to properly honor my father."

"Everyone on staff that we came into contact with was absolutely amazing. My husbands death was unexpected and making decisions during this time was difficult, but with the help of everyone at Colonial Funeral Home everything turned out perfect. Dealing with a death of a loved one is one of the most horrible situations to go through, Colonial Funeral Home made the process easier for our family."

"They provide services that cover every aspect. I didn't have to worry if I forgot something. From guestbook to programs, a canvas, the casket and flowers. And they didn't skip on quality. I was so impressed and thankful. My Mother's last Day was perfect! Our funeral director Scott also kept in touch with me and was so helpful in making us understand the services provided. He worked with me to get everything just the way I wanted, and I'm a picky person, indecisive person. He was patient with me and was willing to make things work. I am grateful for Scott Swanner, you really lifted a burden off of my brothers and I. We have no family here, it's just us. But we still were able to make our mom's last day PEFECT! God bless you and your staff."

"The Colonial Funeral Home director and staff were very professional and compassionate from the beginning of our funeral planning to the day of my father's funeral service and full military honors burial. In addition to providing helpful ideas and suggestions for his services, all of the details were expertly planned and executed - we are forever grateful for the beautiful farewell that we were able to give to my father who had served his country for over 31 years... With our deepest gratitude, The Karre Family"
