Parkview Funeral Home & Cremation Service is locally owned and operated by Brent D. Francis, licensed Funeral Director and Mortician. Brent lives nearby with his wife Martha, daughter Olivia and sons Jack and Ben. He was raised living above a small town funeral home owned and operated by his father and grandfather. It is this experience that shaped his belief that a funeral home should be an extension of the grieving families own home during the funeral period. People should feel at home in a funeral home not like visitors and should be made to feel as comfortable as possible. Every wish or concern they have should be quickly and properly attended to. Our aim is to always say "yes" to every request.
Brent received his Funeral Director's & Mortician's license in 1994 after serving in the Army.
Parkview is decorated with warm colors and comfortable furnishings. Children enjoy spending time in the play area designed and furnished by Brent's 3 young children. Our refreshment room is a comfortable place to relax with old friends and family while sharing stories about the deceased.
Parkview is truly a family owned and operated funeral home. Sometimes Oscar the family dog is on the front porch watching traffic on Harford Rd. while Brent and Martha work in the flower beds.
