“I actually get to do something incredibly rewarding. I have more time with my family at home and have begun to spend a little more time with families who have lost a loved one. I feel at home and it is hospitality in a very rare, genuine form.”

Barbara Capriotti
Assistant Manager - Syracuse, NY

“Like most funeral directors, I work very hard during the workday, but I’m always home for dinner with my family. Family time is extremely important to me and Newcomer, my employer, understands that. They value me as an employee and want me to be successful and happy.”

Adam Byers
Funeral Director in Charge - Columbus, OH

“I love being part of a company that cares.”

“Joining Newcomer straight out of college as an apprentice allowed me to return home to Akron. I am now the Managing Funeral Director and am truly impressed by the dedication our associates show each and every family we serve on a daily basis. Our team goes above and beyond to provide high-quality service at an affordable price. There’s no place I’d rather be.”

Robyn Deterling
Managing Funeral Director - Akron, OH

“I used to be a Funeral Director at a small, family owned funeral home. It was a very nice place, but as the youngest/newest director, I found myself constantly on call. Working at Newcomer has made my job fun again. At work I am part of a family atmosphere that runs like a well - oiled machine to manage all the details involved in a caring, traditional funeral service.I also love the fact that when I am home with my husband and cats, I have the time to enjoy them. ”

Jessica Olson
Funeral Director - Orlando, FL

“I think I am lucky to get to come to a job where they care about their employees.”

“I love assisting families. Nothing makes me more satisfied than when a family leaves the funeral home in better spirits than when they came.”

David Wilcox

“I don’t feel like I’m working when I’m at work. The Charles Bukowski poem, The Consummation of Grief, “I was born for this. I was born to hustle roses down the avenues of the dead.” Sums it up best.”

Megan Castilleja
Administrative Assistant - Dayton, OH

“I get to walk in the door everyday and do a job that I enjoy and that I can be proud of.”

Our History

Our company benefits from a long and rich tradition dating back to 1893, when D.W. Newcomer opened a funeral home in Kansas City. Followed by his son, grandson, and great-grandson Ren Newcomer, the tradition of providing quality funeral service at a fair price has guided the family for generations.

We believe every family deserves personal service, merchandise of the highest quality, and a price that is fair. This belief has guided our expansion and plans for future growth. Learn more about how our company has grown over the years in the timeline below.
