Etzweiler Funeral Home was founded in 1911. With roots that run deep in the community and a family that goes above and beyond for the families they serve, the Etzweiler’s have been running a successful family owned and operated funeral home for well over 100 years. It began when Edward Etzweiler purchased a furniture store and mortuary in Wrightsville, Pennsylvania. Shortly thereafter, in 1928, his son Marlyn, expanded the family business and opened a funeral home in York.
The York community response to the firm’s caring attention grew steadily. The York and Wrightsville funeral homes were owned and operated by Marlyn Etzweiler until his death in 1976. At that time, his son, M. Robert (Bob) Etzweiler assumed the ownership and operational management of the firm. As the firm passes 105 years of service, the fourth generation of the Etzweiler family is currently involved in the family business. Bob’s three children; Ashlee, Shannon, and Rob are an integral part of the firm’s service to families and proudly carry on the tradition of remaining locally owned and family operated.
