Our History

Our History

Does a funeral home have a Life Story, you ask? Yes. Just like you and your family, this funeral home has a story also. By sharing our story we pass along our legacies from one person to another and from generation to generation. More than the recitation of facts, stories are what put things into perspective. It is by knowing our past that we come to understand our present world. It is what connects us with those who came before and those who will come after us.

Our story began when Justin J. Ford, Sr. started working in his grandfather’s funeral business (NJ Ford & Sons Funeral Home) as a young child. Justin J. Ford, Sr. loved everything about the business, especially the people. He knew at an early age that he was born to serve people from all walks of life. In fact, as early as second grade Justin J. Ford, Sr. dreamed about being an “undertaker”. The undertakers he knew were his heroes because they supported families during the most difficult times.

While working at NJ Ford & Sons Funeral Home, Justin J. Ford, Sr. completed mortuary school and became an internationally licensed funeral director and embalmer. He furthered his training; continued to improved his skills; and later joined his father, also a funeral director, at Joe Ford Funeral Home. After working tirelessly in the industry for more than 20 years, Justin J. Ford, Sr. opened Justin Ford Funeral Home in 2015 to a very welcoming community.

Today, while still providing the tradition of service the Ford family is known for, our story includes a deeper personal mission. Our broader mission centers around commitment to overwhelming personal service, to excellence in all that we do, to exceeding the level of value and service families deserve and expect, and especially to caring for you in your darkest hour.

Here at Justin Ford Funeral Home we want to be known as the place where families feel safe shedding tears, knowing life can be celebrated, and that life ends but love and memories do not. We are committed to helping you do this by sharing the story of your love one. We have years of experience caring for families, from all walks of life. Each family comes to us because they know we are leaders in our profession, dedicated to excellence in service, and have the highest integrity.
