About Us

Timothy A. Honquest started in the funeral profession over 30 years ago in Palatine, Illinois.  After receiving his Bachelors Degree from Western Illinois University, Tim went to Worsham College of Mortuary Science, graduating in 1988. Coming to Rockford, Tim served his apprenticeship with a local funeral home and, liking Rockford, he then stayed on with that funeral home before starting his own in 1995 in Loves Park and opening a second location in Roscoe in 2007.  

Tim has been through the loss and grieving process of his sister's untimely death and therefore made it his mission as a funeral service provider to take the time to listen and hear the needs of the families he serves.  

Tim is the proud father of two children, Zach and Zoe.  Outside of the business, Tim and his wife, Rachel, enjoy spending time and relaxing with family and friends.  Tim presently serves on the Rockford Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors. 

The funeral service business has been characterized by high costs for years.  Families can now receive the same high quality of care they expect for hundreds and in many cases, thousands, of dollars less than the cost at other funeral homes.  We pride ourselves on our First Class Service and First Class Facilities and our commitment to the details that make your loved one's service unique and a true reflection of who they were in a way that fits your needs, values and budget.  Our success is dependent upon our ability to provide families with a positive and meaningful experience while under our care and guidance.  It would be our honor to guide you on this journey.
