It is not always possible to pay respects in person, so we hope that this small token will help.
Offer a gift of comfort and beauty to a family suffering from loss.
A gift to your family, sparing them hard decisions at an emotional time.
Funeral service has been the traditional family occupation in our family since 1919, when my Grandfather Vernon opened our first funeral home in Pleasantville, Pennsylvania. In 1936, my Uncle Fred opened another firm in Dale Borough, just outside of Johnstown. Soon to follow would be my Uncle Louis and my father, Jack Sr., both owning and operating firms in Bedford County. Our third generation began with my brother, Jack Jr., who now owns and oversees the operation of three homes in Bedford County.
Upon graduating from the Pittsburgh Institute of Mortuary Science in 1978, I continued to work for the McDonald-Linn Funeral Home in Pittsburgh for two years. Then in 1980 my family and I moved to Chambersburg, where I began my employment with the John 0. Park Funeral Home, formerly located in downtown Chambersburg. I would then purchase the business from Mr. Park in 1983. Due to substantial growth and the need for a larger facility, we erected an entirely new building in 1993 at our present location on Falling Spring Road. We are proud to announce our recent addition with the purchase of the John L. Agett Funeral Home in Dry Run, Pennsylvania.
