Gene W. Hoopes, Mortician

Specializing in plastic surgery and trauma reconstruction. I take extreme pride in my reconstruction and plastic surgery ability that allows me to provide one last positive image for a grieving family, instead of the alternative that so many others in my business would not want to bother taking the time, or don’t have the skill set to do.

“Some of the greatest joy I receive is when families of those who have passed due to significant physical trauma, thank me for allowing them to have an open-casket viewing for their loved one when they did not think it was possible. ”
– Gene Hoopes
