Heroes In Honor
Staab Funeral Homes is dedicated to honoring the brave men and women who served and sacrificed in order to maintain our freedom, as well as the police officers and firefighters who help keep our freedom safe. We show our appreciation by offering custom military headstones, flags, burial allowances, and financial contributions (Heroes In Honor credit) to our honorably discharged veterans, police officers and firefighters. We work with a great deal of “Heroes In Honor” families and can help you arrange any special services you may want.
