We used Malesich and Shirey Funeral Home for my father's passing. We loved working with Sean. He was very helpful and professional and loved his sense of humor during a difficult time. I would definitely recommend using this small business for your needs!

My mother chose Malesich and Shirey initially because the company was local and easily accessed just about a mile from her home. Of course, we made several visits, solidifying her plans and setting up the details, but when the event came, we realized how much of an asset this company is! The process was not at all intimidating or uncomfortable. Wishes were honored and papers signed within minutes in a calm atmosphere, and Tucker's gentle, sweet personality made everything seem to flow perfectly. He was also able to reduce costs by using a third party in the burial process and he negotiated well with another company so that our family did not have to feel any pressure or disappointment. In addition, whenever a member of our family made a request or asked a question, response were quick and accurate, clear and effective. We are so glad that our mother chose Malesich & Shirey Funeral Home and Colorado Crematory.
