Learn our story, from the beginning and into the future.
Wolfe-O'Neill Funeral Home is unique in that this beautiful historical home is not your average looking funeral facility. It was constructed in 1905 and later converted into a funeral home in the 1940s.
David W. O'Neill, licensed manager and owner, has been serving the Kalkaska community and surrounding areas since 2001. David has been a licensed funeral director for nearly 20 years.
Our purpose is to provide meaningful services, whether burial or cremation, to those who have suffered the loss of a loved one. We take pride in our ability to provide satisfaction to the families we serve.
