The Morris Family is the oldest established family owned funeral home in the Miami Valley area. We opened our first funeral home in 1886 in Bellbrook, Ohio and we now have two locations in the Miami Valley Area. When you call us you are entrusting your loved one with one of our family members who not only own, but actually work at our funeral homes. You do not get just an employee of a large chain that is managed out of state or out of the country.
Over the past several years, large multi-national organizations have been purchasing funeral homes at an alarming rate. Many local funeral homes have sold out to national and even international conglomerates. These funeral service conglomerates often keep the original family name on their businesses because they know that at your greatest time of need you are more likely to turn to a local family you feel you can trust than to a national chain you know nothing about. They are large corporations that are publicly traded on the stock exchange. This makes them responsible to their stockholders and board of directors to continually grow profits year after year. As a result you end up paying more money and receive less value for your funeral service even though they advertise they have lower rates.
A sampling of our offerings is listed below. Please call us at 1-937-878-4751 so we can help you through this process.
We can create a customized, online memorial for you to share with family and friends. The memorial includes the obituary and any photographs you wish to provide. It will serve as a place for visitors to post condolences, share memories, upload photos, and light candles in honor of your loved one.
We can produce a personal tribute DVD that can be played at the service and online. Simply provide us with the photographs you want to include and we will transform them into a wonderful video celebration of your treasured memories.
Sharing Service Details
We reduce the stress of contacting those who need the details of the service for your loved one. We post the dates and times of the service as part of the online memorial on our website. You can then either share the memorial on your Facebook or Twitter page or copy the details from the site into an email or text. Both options give you the peace of mind that you have provided the necessary information to those who need it.
For four generations and 136 years, Morris Sons Funeral Homes has been serving the funeral needs of our community with dignity and integrity. As of June 27, 2022, we are retiring and have closed the business, and sold our properties on Dorothy Lane in Kettering, and Main Street in Fairborn.
We have entrusted all our preneed accounts to Routsong Funeral Home, Inc, which is owned and operated by third generation funeral director Thomas Routsong, along with his two sons, Sam and Max. The Routsong family fully intends to serve your family to the best of their ability, and will strive to offer the same compassionate care and integrity to which you have become accustomed. They have two funeral home locations, one on the corner of Stroop Rd and Woodman Drive, and the other one in downtown Centerville on Rt. 48 near Rt. 725. To learn more about their funeral home and what sets them apart from others please visit www.Routsong.com.
If you prefunded your services with us, we assure you that the funds you gave us in advance to pay for your funeral costs remain fully accounted for and secure. If you have planned your services with us, but not yet prefunded, be assured that the file with your wishes is safe and secure with Routsong Funeral Home. We are confident that Routsong Funeral Home will serve you well and provide the most dignified and personal funeral service for you and your family.
If you would like to visit either of the Routsong Funeral Homes, please feel free to give them a call and they’ll be happy to arrange a tour. You may contact any of the Routsong family members at 937-293-4137.
