What Sets Us Apart

Service and Experience

Still owned and managed by the same Trahan family since our inception in 1935, we understand that death is difficult and each situation is unique. Our sincere, knowledgeable staff with years of experience is progressive and knows how to listen which makes us the “go to” funeral home for information and assistance before, during, and after the funeral. We are available all day and night, every day.


Well-Appointed Facilities

Centrally located in Bay County, our total funeral home is all on one-floor with no steps to climb. It is completely handicapped-accessible without the need for an elevator or special equipment. Our chapels are more intimate and personal than the expandable rooms at other homes. Families have options because each chapel has a unique décor. Our Hall of Meditation provides solace in a time of stress and emotion.


Preplanning Services

In 1987, we established the Trahan Prearrangement Center designed to provide Funeral Preplanning with our No-Payment and Prepayment options. Our Medicaid-Approved plans guarantee that your prepaid funeral arrangements are an exempt-asset. We are registered with the State of Michigan and Michigan Insurance Division to offer funeral insurance and funeral trusts to insure that your funds are safe and secure. Under state law, we are audited annually. You can be assured that we take this responsibility seriously and know that Trust is a Tradition at Trahan.


Aftercare Services

We are the only funeral firm in Bay County to offer a monthly grief support group to the community free of charge with a professional counselor. By understanding the grief process and interacting with others who have experienced the same feelings, one is better able to live life anew. In addition, we are the only funeral home in the area to host an Annual Memorial Holiday Candle Lighting Ceremony to honor those we love who have died.


Monuments & Markers

In 1974, we established Trahan Memorials to design and manufacture personalized monuments & markers to remember those who have died in a permanent place. A variety of granites as well as bronze memorials are available. We also can arrange for honorably discharged veterans to obtain a VA provided marker. We offer all shapes, sizes, and prices from which to select.
