Our Story

Learn our story, from the beginning and into the future.

Ever since we opened our gates we have approached life (and death) differently. While some just see the end of a loved one’s life as a time for grief and mourning, we prefer to think of it as a time for reflection, appreciation and even celebration. This is evident in everything we do, from the way we conduct our services to the amenities we choose to offer. We are not a burial ground. We are a close knit community dedicated to honoring, sharing and preserving the amazing and inspirational stories that are life.

Why Us?

In a nutshell? Experience, professionalism, compassion, and empathy.

Why Us?

Howard K. Hill Funeral Services is proud to introduce Aria, the future of the funeral industry. The Aria brand is defined by the unparalleled quality of service we deliver to our customers and our community. Our brand of service provides the utmost attention to customers at every level of contact, from community involvement to all interactions with our employees.

Aria’s most unique service is the Aria Urban Prosperity Fund. This community development fund provides financial education to help empower and restore urban neighborhoods by investing in our people. Financial literacy training shifts the mindset in the community from one of poverty to one of prosperity. The UPF is funded by Howard K. Hill Funeral Services as well as by generous support from the community.

The Aria brand defines every element of the funeral process. We strive to orchestrate a truly memorable service, unique to the individual. Aria and UPF include a wide variety of assistance, from financial literacy training, to at-need services such as house cleaning, legal advice, travel arrangements, and multi-generational grief services. If we are unable to fulfill a particular need in-house, we have a list of trusted professionals who can help.

The exceptional and caring services provided by Aria and UPF encourage consumers to feel more comfortable with our staff and the funeral planning process. With Aria, we believe everyone who enters our doors deserves to be treated with the utmost compassion, respect and dignity, regardless of social status, financial standing, religion, ethnicity, color or creed.
