History

Gardinier Funeral Home has been serving Franklin area families for years. We are honored to be a part of the rich history of this community and plan to be a part of it for many years to come.


L.L. Burger

The Gardinier Funeral Home was established in 1932 by L.L. Burger. Mr. Burger came from Cambridge Springs, PA and served his internship in Franklin before opening the funeral home.



Former Leech Home, now converted

Mr. Burger bought the former Leech home and converted it to a funeral home.

In 1964 Mr. Burger added the large living room chapel. Most of the woodwork still exists from when it was a private residence.

In 1973, Mr. Burger sold the funeral home to Robert W. Gardinier, Sr. Mr. Gardinier then added much of the present parking.



Ted Gabrys

The Gabrys Brothers Funeral Home merged with the Gardinier Funeral Home in 1977.

In 1988, Robert sold the firm to his son, Michael W. Gardinier, who is the current owner. Michael has completely remodeled both the interior and exterior of the funeral home.
