My Commitment

I have been working in the funeral service profession since I was twelve years old.  I have worked in every aspect of the business with the guidance of my late father, Elbert B. Boakes and my mother, Barbara Boakes.  Through my years of schooling, I had the opportunity to work with other funeral homes, which helped me gain the knowledge and confidence to run my own business. 

I am 1991 graduate of Mercer County Community College, with a certificate in Funeral Service Education.  I am also a Certified Bereavement Facilitator through the American Academy of Bereavement of Tucson, AZ, and a Certified Life Celebrant.

My goal is to assist families through one of the most difficult times in their lives, planning the funeral of a loved one.  The most important thing is to provide a comfortable and relaxed setting during the initial arrangements of a funeral. 

Whether it is pre-need or at-need, funeral arrangements can be made at my funeral home, or I will come to your home to meet with you.  I have learned to be flexible, patient, and understanding to my families’ individual needs.  I am not a salesman and in no way pressure my families into services or products they do not want or need.  I try to provide a very high quality of service at an affordable price.

Although I still remain active in every part of the business, the people that work with me make the real difference. Heather M. Maderia, a licensed funeral director, started with me at the age of 16.  Erik Hudson, another licensed funeral director, though recently licensed, he has been working here for 14 years, Julie Dixon, my Administrative Assistant, has been with me for the past fifteen years. George Samuelsen, my best friend, has been a part-time employee for 25 years. Julie’s husband, Gary, retired from Atlantic City Electric, assists as a driver for funerals and removals.  Kimberly LaPergola joined our staff two years ago, working in the office.   Working together as a team helps me to better serve my families.

Sincerely,

Keith W. Boakes, Mgr.
