The Fayette County Chamber of Commerce welcomed Roberts Funeral Home to the community and into the chamber family at their ribbon cutting ceremony Friday.
The community is invited to an open house today from 3 p.m. until 7 p.m. to tour the facility, see the renovated chapel, enjoy cookies and cider and have a chance to win door prizes.
Wayne Roberts officially took over the former Wellman Kinzer Godorhazy Funeral Home, 509 Washington Ave. in Washington C.H., in October and brought his pet cremation services to the business. No stranger to the industry, Roberts has been involved locally for nearly 18 years. Following his passion for the funeral service, he received his degree in 2005 from the Cincinnati College of Mortuary Science, graduating Magna Cum Laude. In 2010, he completed his apprenticeship to become a fully licensed funeral director and embalmer in the state of Ohio.
Often referred to as “the castle,” Roberts said his facility offers a unique look on the outside, while the inside offers the largest chapel in the area. “We pride ourselves on offering families guidance to arrange a dignified and fitting tribute to honor the memories of their loved ones,” said Roberts.
Making the service personal and unique allows families to have a meaningful funeral, which can help start the healing process. In addition, Roberts offers pet cremation services and products for the four-legged members of the family.
“Owning my own business is a dream come true and to be able to provide this service in my hometown makes it even more rewarding,” said Roberts, “We are proud to call Washington Court House home and look forward to providing meaningful and valuable services to the area for many years to come.”
