Matt Cervantes

Funeral Director/Embalmer
 
Matt was born and raised in the Quad City
Area. He was interested in funeral service from a very young age and always knew he wanted to serve people on a unique level. He graduated in 2004 from Rockridge High School in Taylor Ridge, IL, and then went on to study mortuary science at Carl Sandburg College in Galesburg. He graduated with a degree in Mortuary Science in 2006.

"I grew up in a small farm town south of the Cities. I enjoy the tight knit communities and being able to get to know families on a more personal level. My work is my passion; I've wanted to be a funeral director for as long as I can remember and it has been a very rewarding career thus far."

When not working for the funeral homes,
Matt enjoys taking his kids, Brayden and Delaney to do fun things, music, going to movies, and is an avid Chicago sports fan.
