Meet our staff, members of the local community who make everything that happens possible.
Roy R. Krise was born and raised in Ridgway. He graduated from Ridgway High School and then attended the Pittsburgh Institute of Mortuary Science, where he earned his degree as a Funeral Director and Embalmer.
Roy saw the opportunity to bring his version of caring, compassionate service to the residents of the Ridgway area. After completely renovating the former Meehan-Silk Funeral Home, Roy has opened the doors to a beautifully appointed, modern facility featuring a 65 inch TV for tribute video presentations, all-new bathrooms, and a completely new layout. Modern wood floors cascade through the new facility, and the fresh paint and furniture make the facility warm and inviting. We recently debuted our newly renovated banquet facility which will be available to each family we serve to use as a luncheon space.
Roy is the son of Randy and Stephanie (Overbeck) Krise of Ridgway and the grandson of Jack and Martha Overbeck of Ridgway and Ray Krise of Kersey and the late Ann Johnston Krise. He lives with his wife, Michelle Muccio-Krise, and three sons, Alex, Marcus, and Vincent.
Jeff along with his wife Annie is the owner of the funeral home. Jeff is a 1985 graduate of Wayne State University’s Mortuary Science Program.
He also holds a bachelor’s degree from Western Michigan University which he earned in 1992. He enjoys exercising and spending time off with his children – Maggie, Jack and Peter.
Jeff and his family are members of the St. Basil Catholic Church. When time allows, Jeff likes to be active in our community and is a member of the Kiwanis Club, Loyal Order of the Moose, Sons of the American Legion, and the Knights of Columbus. In 2013, Jeff and his family were the St. Basil Knights of Columbus Family of the year.
Jeff was recognized by the Bobby Walker Administration with their Leadership Award in 2010. He was also recognized by the First Spiritual Church of Covert for his role in community leadership in 2015.
