About us

Our funeral home was established in 1946 by our founder, Gilbert L. Dailey. Mr. Dailey was raised in Steelton, a veteran of WWII where he achieved the rank of Lt. Colonel, and was loved by many in the community. He was an active member of many fraternal, church, and civic organizations, and viewed his role as a funeral director as a ministry- and we continue that tradition even today.
