The John A. Freyvogel Sons Funeral Home has a proud tradition of conducting dignified, military-style funerals with Honor Guard for veterans of the United States Marine Corps, Navy, Army, Air Force, and Coast Guard. In 1921, funeral services, for the first fallen Soldier of World War I, were led by our founder, and grandfather, John A. Freyvogel. Our funeral directors can assist you with Veterans benefits information.
