Out of Town Funeral Directors


Many times in our profession we receive out of town funeral calls and wonder which funeral home or trade service comes highly recommended in that particular area. Before you call a large shipping or trade embalming service, please call our firm first. You will be pleasantly surprised with our rates and more importantly, with the quality of our embalming work. We believe in being reasonable with your firm because someday, we may need your services and hope that you will extend the same professional courtesy to us. 

Mario Billow

A partner in our firm, Mario has been providing Central PA and out of town firms with a dignified and professional embalming service. As a former hospital mortician at Hershey Medical Center, he assisted the pathologists with the autopsies, acted as a liaison between the funeral home and the hospital, procured a signed death certificate by the physician, and helped the organ donation team with an expeditious release of the patient to the funeral home. Mario has attended many seminars and is known as an expert in embalming organ donation cases and autopsy cases.

Clifford D. Forester

Cliff has been providing quality embalming work for other funeral homes as well for over the past 12 years. He is also a partner in our firm and continues to educate himself by attending seminars and increasing his knowledge in all the aspects of professional embalming. Some funeral homes call him when they are presented with a difficult case and wish to have his consulting services. 

Both Mario and Cliff are licensed to embalm in Pennsylvania.


Many funeral homes in the area call Mario at Dailey Funeral Home to help them with difficult cases. Below you will see a list of funeral homes, both local and out of town that call on him to assist them. Please feel free to contact these funeral homes and ask them about his work.
