Veterans


Heitger Funeral Service is proud to serve our Veterans and their spouses as they have proudly served for our country.

We feel veterans should be given complete dignity and the respect they deserve. Veterans have given so much to our country and risked their lives to keep us free. Our services have been planned with that respect in mind. We gladly serve them as they have served for us.

Funeral Services or Cremation services will always be accompanied by the rights and military honors each veteran earned and deserves.
We are focused on providing caring, compassionate, service to our client families. As a Veteran, you deserve the very best.
