Our Company

The Vertin Family tradition of first class funeral service began over a century ago when the family conducted their first funeral service in 1904. Although our organization has grown in many ways, the tradition of providing professional, caring service to families in need, has always remained.  Because we are family owned, we are proud to work like a family... everyone doing their part to provide dedicated service to each and every family we are entrusted to serve.

“As the business side of funeral service evolves from a merchandise-based model to one of primarily service, excellent delivery has never been more important. By establishing our own company’s program of excellence, where we strive for all funeral homes to become “premier” firms, we become a credit to the families we serve, to the communities we live and work in, and to the funeral industry as a whole.”       —Tom Vertin  

The Vertin Family tradition of first class funeral service began a century ago when the family conducted their first funeral service on May 20, 1904. Although Vertin Company has grown in many ways, the tradition of providing professional, caring service to families in need, has always remained.

Vertin Company is owned by Tom Vertin, a third generation funeral director whose grandfather, Joseph Vertin, Sr., founded Joseph Vertin & Sons Funeral Home in Breckenridge, Minnesota. Tom’s father, Joseph Vertin, Jr., followed in his father’s footsteps at the funeral home. Within his profession, Joe was always respected for his business and professional knowledge. Most important to Joe, however, were the families he served in the funeral home. Caring for families in their time of need brought great meaning and satisfaction to his life. Joe served five generations of families within the community and because of this history, he took great pride in the fact that his work in funeral service was being carried on by his children and grandchildren. 

In 1967, Tom joined his father in operating the funeral home in Breckenridge. Since that time, Vertin Company has acquired several funeral homes, and is now one of the largest privately-held, family-owned funeral home companies in the Midwest. 

Because Vertin Company is privately-held, we have longtime stability and financial security. We are not a public company, nor do we want to be. Because we are family-owned, we prefer to work like a family...everyone doing their part to provide excellent service to the families who have entrusted their loved one to us.

We are committed to the communities that we serve, and believe that families can be better served through cooperation, not competition. Our hope is that our traditions and philosophies speak to our belief in the future of funeral service.
