Learn our story, from the beginning and into the future.
Ever since we opened our doors 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.
In a nutshell? Experience, professionalism, compassion, and empathy.
We've learned a lot over many years. Like how to present options without overwhelming. And how to meet the needs of many caring parties. People come to us in difficult times, and we respond with kindness, calmness and expertise. Our goal is to create a beautiful occasion and make you feel welcome, always. We spend our days planning with families. We stay up to date with industry developments. And we make hard times a little easier.

Morris Eickenhorst, the founder of Eickenhorst Funeral Serivices, created this firm with a strong desire to serve our community. A passion that he pursued during much of his life through his involvement in and dedication to many local organizations. Morris believed that families should not have to empty their wallets in order to properly mourn a loved one. He considered the funeral service as more than just a business - it is a calling. Morris passed away over 9 years ago, shortly after realizing his dream of opening this funeral home. We encourage you to visit our obituary page and read about our founder's extraordinary life.
We are committed to the same high moral and ethical standard that Morris lived by and put into practice when leading us and establishing this firm. Our goal at Eickenhorst Funeral Services is to extend the obvious love Morris held for this community through the services we provide you and your family.

Funeral Director/EmbalmerRead Bio
I was born and raised in a small town outside of Pittsburgh, Pa. I moved to Texas in September of 2000. Having spent 17 years in the corporate world and never feeling satisfied, I decided to follow my dream of becoming a funeral director/embalmer. At age 45, I enrolled in Commonwealth Institute of Funeral Services and became a member of the National Funeral Service honor roll, as well as a certified crematory operator, and upon graduation, finally a licensed funeral director and provisional embalmer. Many people have asked me why I would start my life over at such a late time in life? Why would I ever want to be a funeral director? The answer is simple, it has always been my calling. At an incredibly young age, I lost someone remarkably close to me and it was the funeral director and embalmer who showed me so much compassion, gave me the strength to get through my grief, and if I can help a family in the same way they helped me, that brings me such joy. When I am not with the families I serve, I am with my other passions in life. Those are my two daughters, Megan who is 28, and Jaden who is 11. Also, two grandchildren, Aiden who is 9, and Willow who is 8. I am grateful, I am blessed.
