Memorable tributes inspired by life

Let’s start with a conversation. Tell us a story—a favorite pastime, a roster of accomplishments or an impeccable collection of memorabilia—and our talented team of funeral directors will work to incorporate these defining elements into a personalized memorial service. Whether you envision one last rousing game of bingo with meaningful prizes, or an exhibition of rarely seen photography and art, we have the resources and experience to fulfill almost any final wish.

We offer cremation services with interment of cremains for those who prefer an alternative to traditional burial. Traditional religious funeral services mark an area of particular expertise. We serve all faiths and cultural backgrounds in our well-appointed chapel. Flexible reception space adapts to your specific desires, whether you prefer a small gathering of family after the service or a large and joyous reunion of friends. Leave the catering to us—we’ll even use your secret family recipes if you’re willing to share.

We Honor Veterans level 2 badgeWe honor veterans

At Smith & Williams Funeral Home, we understand the unique needs of America’s veterans and their families. As a Level Two Founding Community Partner with We Honor Veterans, our staff is knowledgeable in the benefits available to veterans and their families. With respect, integrity and dignity, we will walk you through the steps of creating a veteran's memorial service that truly honors the life and sacrifice of your loved one.

A tradition of remembrance

Each December, our Candlelight Service of Remembrance honors the loved ones of the families we have served over the course of the year. Members of the public, including our past clients, join to celebrate the legacy of those who meant so much to our community. This small gesture of service demonstrates our commitment to lasting care.
