If you’re seeking an honorable celebration of life, we invite you to learn more about where we came from, our vision, and the dedicated people behind our work.

A History of Caring

Gary Klontz, a Licensed Funeral Director, graduated from the California College of Mortuary Science. He has served families for over 30 years. Gary is fourth generation family in Auburn, a 30 year Rotarian, Member of Holy Family Catholic Church, and serves on the Board of the Auburn St. Vincent DePaul Society.

We are able to provide the needed assistance to families in a meaningful way.

While our facility in downtown Auburn is the center point of services provided, we understand that your individual family needs are unique and call for a personalized approach. We provide resources and services based on your needs, and work to assist you in a way that best represents your requests.

Our Staff’s Dedication to Respectful Care

A funeral, or memorial service, should provide family members and loved ones with the chance to reflect, remember, and celebrate a life well-lived. Our goal is to create exceptional services and experiences that fulfill the wishes of your loved one. Our experienced Funeral Directors provide guidance on the crucial first steps toward healing.
