My niece had pick this place [O'Leary's] out for her dad. I am so glad she did. Eric O’Leary went above and beyond my expectation. I have dealt with lots of other funeral places in my lifetime and no place comes near what O’Leary did for us and would do for your loved ones. If you have any kind of issues or concerns [financially or special customs], talk to them. I guarantee that they will work with you. The impossible, they make it possible [allowing us the opportunity to view and say goodbye]. I have a big family and I know they all called them [on the phone with special request], instead of [O'Leary] getting frustrated, they tended to all their [individual] needs. Thank you Eric O’Leary and O'Leary Funeral Services for doing a wonderful job in helping us to have closure during this difficult time.

Eric and his staff have been great! We don't know what we would have of done if it was not for them. Hamilton Funeral Home wasn't able to help and we don't know what we would have done if it was not for them. They helped us to celebrate our dad's life by honoring him with a funeral and military burial. Our family thanks you very much!

My sister and I met with Eric and Jeanne to prearrange my mothers funeral. They were very professional as they spelled out all the specifics and associated costs. Having been involved in my father‘s funeral, I can say that his rates are extremely competitive. We are indeed fortunate to have local access to such professional services. I would and have recommended them to friends and relatives.

I have to say that the people at O'Leary Funeral & Cremation Services are Excellent. Eric and Jeannie are very knowledgeable and worked very hard to make my dad's funeral a beautiful service. It was very comforting to know that we could take care of all the arrangements at one place. It is always difficult when a love one passes and it is nice to know that someone that is as knowledgeable as Eric is there to work with and for you to make the best of a difficult time.

Great asset to the Community offering the space to rent for events. The one stop place to take care of many needs. On site flower shop with many things to offer not just flowers. I was totally impressed.
Would recommend just a drop in and take a look I am sure you will feel the same.

We chose to use O'Leary's when my mother passed away and the experience was exceptional. Eric was on top of every detail and very professional. Even the Hospice nurse that came to the house was impressed when she called Eric to come over and pick up her body. She said he was the most pleasant funeral director she had ever called. I highly recommend this funeral home!

I couldn't have been more pleased with the services we had for my grandmother. The chapel & reception room are very nice & the flower arrangements were just what she liked. The plans we made with Eric beforehand took a lot of pressure off of us at a very tough time.
