As a youth growing up in Johnson City, my parents taught me a valuable lesson: When I would shovel snow, mow lawns and wash cars for friends and neighbors. I was told that if I worked hard, honored my promises and was fair with people, I would make money and succeed. My father told me to charge a little less than others and provide a little more service than was expected. Some of my friends were happy to charge a few dollars more for any work they did, so they could make more money working less. As a result of being fair and completing my work as promised, I often found a person would give my name to a friend and I had another person to help. I never lacked work, and I learned a valuable lesson about business and helping others - Always provide more than people expect.
This is a lesson I continue to benefit from today. I believe in providing quality services at fair and reasonable prices. I understand that many in our community today have limited financial resources. I work hard to control my overhead and work harder to meet and exceed a family's expectations. I believe increasing the number of families I serve is the best way to keep prices low, not charging more from a smaller number of families. Select Hopler & Eschbach Funeral Home and your family will be served by a capable funeral director and staff committed to providing quality service at prices you can afford.
Often the biggest mistake made in planning funeral arrangements is making significant emotional and financial decisions without the benefit of experience and education.
