Provident Funeral Home is the hidden gem of Ogden. Manager and Funeral Director Keith Johnston understands that losing a loved one is hard, and he makes the funeral planning seem nearly effortless for the family.
The home personally handles all the cremation, travel, and burial permits. It is also prepped to assist in veteran funerals and ensures the bereaved understand the benefits they’re entitled to. As a result, the family typically has very little to do. They can even begin the process entirely on their website. However, the home is fully staffed so there will always be someone to greet you upon arrival. They are not under any COVID-19 restrictions, either.
Florists, estate planners, casket, and urn manufacturers are local. They can have all the necessary merchandise within 24 hours if needed. Yet, you can start planning as soon as you’d like, with a variety of pre-plan options that allow you to fund your funeral at your own pace.
While he’s passionate about the families he works with, Keith will always defer to the family, so they can personalize every service. He prefers to truly memorialize the decedent exactly how they would like.
