Our History


Generations of Compassionate, Family Focused Service

For 65 years, Calhoun Funeral Home & Cremation Service has been offering funeral, burial, and cremation services to families in Cleveland, Akron, Bedford Heights, and beyond. Our founder, Byron Calhoun, gained his passion for the funeral service profession from watching his father, William E. Calhoun, who co-founded Stewart & Calhoun Funeral Home & Cremation Service in Akron, Ohio. At his father’s feet, he learned the importance of providing exceptional service at every point of the funeral planning process.

Carrying a Tradition of Excellence into the Future

In 2006, Byron Calhoun expanded our ability to serve Northeast Ohio families when he opened our Lakeshore location in Cleveland, Ohio. He then purchased and fully remodeled our Rockside location in Bedford Heights, Ohio in 2012. Just like his father, Byron is committed to treating each person who comes to him for help in planning a meaningful service as if they were a member of his own family. That is the family-owned Calhoun Funeral Home & Cremation Service difference.
