Funeral HomeGordon Memorial Home

From $999.00 To $2,713.00

My interest in the the mortuary business, started almost as a lark. We were to write a paper on our future plans in our senior year in high school and another student and I decided that we would write about being undertakers. A short time later, my mother passed away after a long illness and I was so impressed with the compassion and help that the funeral director provided, plus the restoration of my mother’s beauty and healthy appearance, as done by an excellent embalmer, I decided, that’s for me. I applied for a job as an apprentice at a local funeral home and was called to work four days after graduation. I finished my apprenticeship in 1946 after returning from serving almost four years in the Army and subsequently passed the State Boards and became a licensed Funeral Director and Embalmer in 1947. I got a job in Cleveland, Ohio with Berkowitz and Sons, where I worked until 1952. I moved back to Akron, my birthplace, and opened Gordon Memorial Home Inc. in a converted double store room which consisted of office space, chapel seating 12 people, with a separate area for private family seating ,casket showroom,embalming room and rest rooms. We moved into our present location in 1962.
