Thankful message with pumpkins on a blue backgroundSince it’s the time of year to gather to celebrate Thanksgiving with family and friends, we wanted to take the opportunity to express our gratitude to you! At Foothill Funeral & Cremation Services (FFC), we have a lot to be thankful for. 2022 was an outstanding first year of business for us – filled with innovation, growth and community support:

  • We are thankful to the city of Azusa, where owner/operators Manny Godoy and Rocky Bautista and our family lived for many years before recently relocating to Covina.

  • Glendora FuneralWe are thankful to the city of Glendora, where our showroom is located on Grand Avenue. Glendora is a great community for small business. And we are blessed to hang our hats in the Pride of the Foothills.
  • Covina ThanksgivingWe are thankful for Covina, where we have recently relocated our home and have joined with Sacred Heart Chapel, to offer clients a great place to host a funeral ceremony or remembrance.

  • We are thankful for our staff, who help make us look good, working with the community and families in a caring yet efficient manner.Silhouette of climbers who climbed to the top of the mountain thanks to mutual assistance and teamwork. Conceptual scene of a team of alpinists

  • We are thankful for pets. As the only funeral home in Southern California to offer services for people as well as pets, we often get to appreciate the unique relationships people have with their four-legged friends. Our own dog, Lola, is a bereavement pug who works with us in our office and helps people who are experiencing grief. Come by our showroom to meet Lola.

  • We are thankful for digital technology, which enables us to offer online tributes and honor individual client communication preferences, so people can contact us via text, email, on the phone or in person.
