About Newcomer Funeral Homes in Toledo

D. W. Newcomer Ren & Theresa Newcomer

Newcomer Funeral Homes 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.

Simply put, these principles are the cornerstone of our funeral home. We believe you deserve personal service, merchandise of the highest quality, and a price that is fair to you. This means a savings of hundreds, even thousands of dollars, compared to other area funeral homes.

You have our word that we will continue to work faithfully to uphold the family heritage that has served our families so well for generations.
