History & Staff

Personalized service options allow you to honor your loved ones in a way that is both meaningful and healing. We hope to provide support and caring while delivering memorial services that celebrate life and help families find the peace they deserve.
If you’re seeking an honorable celebration of life, we invite you to learn more about where we came from, our vision, and the dedicated people behind our work.

A History of Caring

In 1982 Ed Sunderlin and Rick Adles opened Northern Colorado Crematory. It was then, and still is, Northern Colorado's only "cremation only" facility. In April 2008 Rick passed away and Ed passed in January of 2014. Both were cremated at Northern Colorado Crematory. In April of 2014 John and Jonathan Seitz purchased NCC. It was Rick and Ed's desire that they succeed them because of their shared belief that NCC remain a "cremation only" facility. 

Whenever we’re faced with difficulties, we find comfort in those we know and trust. People we can count on to do their very best to help us. This is especially true when a loved one has died. John and Jonathan Seitz are committed to being there when you need them. 

They are also committed to staying on the cutting edge of cremation trends. A new state-of-the-art cremation unit is being installed in January of 2016. This unit will shorten the cremation time and be much more efficient and environmentally friendly.

Our Staff’s Dedication to Respectful Care

A funeral, or memorial service, should provide family members and loved ones with the chance to reflect, remember, and celebrate a life well-lived. Our goal is to create exceptional services and experiences that fulfill the wishes of your loved one. Our experienced Funeral Directors provide guidance on the crucial first steps toward healing.
