Honoring a Life with Music

Music is often an integral part of the celebrations and ceremonies we share with our loved ones. 

At Duksa Family Funeral Homes, we witness the difference special music can have in making funeral and memorial services more meaningful.   We offer each family we serve a song with the professional vocal and/or acoustic guitar talents of Steve Casillas, at no additional cost.  Steve has performed locally as a church cantor and on stages around the country. 

The song may be a favorite or have lyrics that capture the essence of a loved one. It may be something religious, romantic or patriotic--whatever is most meaningful.

We are often told that his performance exceeded a family’s expectations and that his music helped a family share memories and invoke peaceful feelings
