Veteran's Memorial Wall

On Memorial Day 2005, the Eckard Baldwin Funeral Home & Chapel proudly unveiled our Veteran's Memorial Wall. We did this to permanently honor each and every veteran we serve, for their service to the United States of America is what ensures our freedom today. Feel free to stop by and pay tribute to our fallen veterans at the only funeral home in Ohio with a permanent veteran's memorial. Click on the play button below to watch an overview video.

Our honest service and commitment to excellence have served our customers well for generations. Whether it’s traditional services or any of our cremation options (including a discounted price for those not choosing a ceremony), we promise to be there for you in your time of need.

If you’ve come to this site for information about an upcoming service, to assist in making arrangements for a love one (including pre-arrangements) or to leave a condolence message, we hope the information we’ve provided will be helpful to you.
