Welcome to Handler Funeral Homes & Cremation Services
We are here for you...
Before, During and After the Need
Our Funeral Homes, located in Tecumseh and Clinton, Michigan, offer comfortable and home like environments to memorialize and pay tribute to your loved one. We guide you through the difficult decision making so you can celebrate the life of your loved one, acknowledge their life accomplishments, their love, and the ways in which they touched your lives and the lives of others.
Our staff realizes that funeral services are as much for family and friends as they are for the deceased. We understand that whether attending a traditional funeral service or a cremation memorial service in our funeral homes, family and friends are able to begin the grieving process in a supportive environment. Reflections on a deceased person's life often cause those in attendance to recall their own best moments with that person. This reflection and celebration helps people grieve in a healthy and meaningful manner.
We at Handler Funeral Homes and Cremation Services take pride in the funeral services we provide. These include traditional or burial funeral services, cremation services, memorial services, cemetery monuments or grave markers, and funeral pre-arrangement options. We are able to assist in planning that special and unique celebration to celebrate a life well lived. Funeral services or cremation services don't have to be dictated by tradition. Instead, the services can be a reflection and a celebration of...
~A Life Lived, A Life Loved, A Life Lost~
We stand behind our axiom:
Before, During and After the Need.
Families can be assured that we will be there...
The most difficult time to make funeral arrangements is at the time of arrangements. Handler Funeral Homes encourage their friends and neighbors to make Pre-Arrangements for their funeral or memorial service and ease the burden on their loved ones during this difficult time. Avoid emotional decision making by family members for the type of funeral service, caskets, urns, monuments, cemetery burial locations and other necessary decisions by pre-arranging with us.
After the death of a loved one many questions have to be answered, information collected for the state death certificate and necessary permits, and composing obituary notices before burial or cremation can take place. Accurately gathering this information can be difficult while emotions are high, whether the death was expected or not. As a society, we plan for things such as retirement, our children's education, and vacations. These are things that may or may not occur. We do know that death, at one time or another will occur. As we plan for our futures, it makes sense to plan for your funeral or memorial by pre-arranging with us.

Handler Funeral Homes and Cremation Services take great pride in our services and staff with our beautiful chapels located in Tecumseh and Clinton, Michigan. We have the most professional, caring, and compassionate staff in the area. We assist our families in creating a meaningful celebration of life to honor their loved one that is unique to that individual. Our funeral and cremation services pay tribute to the deceased in a unique manner, as no two lives are alike and we believe neither should any two funerals. We help our families coordinate all the details to their service by following high ethical standards and treating each family and deceased with the dignity that they deserve. Our families leave our care knowing that they have made the right decision and feel a part of the Handler Funeral Home Family.
There is a difference in value and service. We are that difference.
Our Funeral Homes & Staff take great pride in our aftercare program that we have developed. We stay in contact with the families we are privileged to serve for one year. We don't become pests or drop in unexpectedly, but we have found that a friendly contact or card during the most important times, such as holidays and anniversaries, can be very helpful to the family and that their loved one has not been forgotten. Each year, Handler Funeral Home & Cremation Services holds a non-denomination memorial service to honor those members of the community that have been lost. We invite you to join us for this memorial service, which will be held at 7 PM on Saturday, May 2, 2015 at the First Presbyterian Church in Tecumseh.
