Piccolo's and John A Gentleman have been Omaha institutions for decades. The leaders of the respective companies actually attended the same school (Creighton Prep) and to this day, attend the same church. It is this family feel that is so important to Tom and Frank that keeps their family of customers cominf back .
Since 1906, when John A. Gentleman began serving families, our community has changed in many ways. Our firm also matured and changed to meet the needs of a growing community. From our humble beginning at 20th and Cuming Street we have been there to assist families in providing a final tribute to those who have died.
It was in the 1920’s that the firm moved into the Gold Coast area of Omaha at 34th and Farnam Street and in 1968 the facility at 72nd and Western Avenue was opened. Once again, in 2002, we have responded to Omaha’s western growth by opening a facility at 14151 Pacific Street and in 2005 our Memorial Planning Center in Bellevue was completed to serve the needs of Bellevue and Sarpy County.
In 1956, John A. Gentleman retired and sold his firm to the Belford family, who continue to provide local ownership and guidance. While the name remains the same, we strive today to provide excellence in all of our services. Every day we come to work knowing that we can, in some way, provide a service that assists families in creating a unique service that celebrates a life.
We focus our attention on the families we serve, not distant shareholders. Our staff is knowledgeable and friendly, the facilities are modern and immaculate and our pricing is fair. We know that you will be so pleased with the services you receive that we personally guarantee your satisfaction. Today, without question, the John A. Gentleman Mortuaries offers the best value in this area.
