For many of the people we serve, a memorial product is much more than a way to mark a gravesite. It is a signpost which points to a unique personal story. That story is about someone important as told through the choice of memorial medium, color, words and art.
Selecting a monument is an important step in your personal healing process. Our dedicated monument and marker professional, Gary Leyendecker, will help you navigate this important step.
Gary’s insightfulness and design abilities have helped many families capture the life of their loved one through inspirational pieces and designs. He will help you explore an array of available options for creating a unique message and memorial design.
Not sure where or when to begin? That’s okay. We understand this is an important step in your journey that goes well beyond making a purchase. We will walk this journey with you from design to delivery at your pace.

What the families we serve are saying:
Ken was one of four cousins in the same grade at Woodland, class of 1960. Ken, Gary Ketchum, Cheri Tyler & Steve Barnum had Barnum's through their mom or dad in their family tree. When Ken and Mary were married, we found that Mary was also a very distant Barnum cousin. Ken will certainly be missed by many. We will never forget the memories we have of both him and Mary. When we were younger, we spent many hours in sports and in the classroom while at Woodland. Ken truly was a gifted mechanic. Ken helped me get one of our tractors running after he retired. Ken's mechanical expertise even went back to his assistance again on our old 1920 Chevy carburetor that kept flooding. Ken was more than just a gifted mechanic he was a great classmate, friend. Ken always was positive and upbeat. He will be sorely missed. Love and prayers to all the family.
