Humboldt Cremation & Funeral Service is the county's first family owned, funeral home alternative. We specialize in just one thing: simple cremation. Our purpose is to provide you with a lower cost alternative to the costly mortuary and other direct cremation providers. We carry out your wishes simply, very affordably and with dignity.
Cremation is considered a more environmentally friendly option for the final disposition of remains, it also allows for a wide range of final disposition options such as cemetery interment, scattering at sea, or kept at home. Our 5 step Peace-of-Mind cremation safeguards, we help lessen the burden placed on surviving family members at a difficult time.
All cremations are done at our family-owned crematory in Eureka. Your loved one never leaves our care. Our positive identification system insures your peace-of-mind.
Kutzkey has been in funeral service for over 20 years. While she has worked in Siskiyou and Shasta
counties, Humboldt County is by far her favorite. She moved here in 2011 and is dedicated to
the families she helps and the community she lives in. She is compassionate,
experienced and helps people through a difficult time with confidence and
kindness. Sandy lives in Arcata with her cat, Olive. She enjoys writing poetry and short stories.
Sandy loves to browse through book stores and spends a lot of time at the beach.
I'm Ava, this job is quite literally my dream job. I'm very honored and so fulfilled to work here. I've had a long-standing interest in this industry due to the sudden loss of my father at a very young age as well as a natural inclination for the unknown. I love art that's not trying to be art, my wife, fashion, music, comedy, my two tiny dogs, and historical documentaries. It's beautiful how much love and care everyone puts in. I will always consider myself lucky to be a part of this.
Austin Alexander moved from Guam to Humboldt County with his family in 2007 and has been living and working in the area ever since. He graduated from Humboldt State University in 2014 with a BA in Film and started working as a Funeral Pre-need Sales Agent and Arranger in 2022.
He enjoys meeting with families and educating them on the many benefits of making final arrangements beforehand.
When he is not seeing families or working a service you can usually find him at a local disc golf course or enjoying one of Humboldt's many scenic beaches or rivers.
