Our Story

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.

Why Us?

In a nutshell? Experience, professionalism, compassion, and empathy.

Why Us?

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 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.

Learn the legacy.

Larry Romero founded the Romero Family Funeral Home in 1977.  A graduate of the San Francisco College of Mortuary Science, he received his accreditation as a licensed funeral director and embalmer and opened his first funeral home in Alamosa, Colorado in 1977.  In the years to follow, he expanded to nine other funeral home locations including San Luis, Monte Vista, Antonito, Walsenburg, La Junta, Pueblo, Pueblo West, Aurora, Denver and Lakewood, Colorado.  

Larry Romero, his wife Debbie, and their five sons have served the families of Southern Colorado and the Front Range for more than 35 years. They are known throughout the region for their superior restorative art and embalming techniques.
