Adam Strahan had a vision of starting his own funeral home based on his passion for serving families who have experienced a loss. He envisioned establishing one that caters to the needs of every family, while at the same time, being affordable, personable and caring. The philosophy of treating every family special (and the same, regardless of their status) is always at the forefront of his actions. Adam considers it an honor to have the opportunity to be a part of this community.
Amy is not only the wife of our owner, Adam Strahan, and the loving mother of four beautiful children, but an integral part of our day-to-day business. One will see her smiling face, bringing comfort and welcoming them here when attending a visitation or memorial service. She loves baking and sharing homemade treats with many of our families that choose us to honor their loved ones. Amy’s spare time is basically non-existent as she has a full-time job caring for her family!
