About Adams Family Funeral Home, PA

This funeral Home was originally founded in 1953, as Silcox Service, by H. Lee Silcox and his wife, Ruth E. Silcox. The business prospered for several years leading to the first of several additions. In 1961 as the first of several additions was being laid out, Robert C. Adams began his first day at the funeral home. In 1968, the funeral home underwent a change of name, to Silcox-Merritt Funeral Service, with the partnership of the Silcox's son-in-law, Dale L. Merritt. In 1990, Robert C. Adams, became a partner leading to another name change, Merritt Adams Funeral Home, P.A., which has recently been renamed to The Adams Family Funeral Home, P.A.

Shortly after, another and the most expansive and ambitious renovations had been planned. In 1993, the grand opening of the newly remodeled facility was held. In Fall of 2001, Robert C. Adams purchased the funeral home from his partners, and with the licensing and training of his son and daughter, has ensured that this funeral home will continue for another generation with the same care and quality which it has always prided itself on. The new funeral home still boasts of the largest rooms of any around. In addition, a crematory was installed on the premises, allowing us to better serve the needs of the changing cultures. The most successful and perhaps the most unique part of the facility was the opening of the children's room. Unlike many places, we have placed a strong emphasis on the funeral as being a family affair, which it is. This has allowed the entire family to experience this difficult time at their own pace.
