Two local funeral homes merge together to better care for Muskegon families.

Muskegon, Michigan, August 20, 2018 – Young Funeral Home and Clock Funeral Home, Inc. , both multi-generational locally owned and operated funeral homes, have merged together effective August 1, 2018. A public announcement was made earlier to families who have placed their faith and trust with Young Funeral Home over the years.

“My father staked his reputation and built our family business on the principle that we would offer comprehensive services and a beautiful facility for every family served, “said Greg Young, “Many things, including funerals have changed dramatically over the years. I made the decision to join Clock’s in order to uphold my father’s promise, well into the future.”


By joining forces with Clock’s, Young families can take advantage of expanded service offerings, three locations that also have a reception facility (Downtown Muskegon, Fruitport & Grand Haven), Phoenix Crematory Services, and a pet cremation / burial assistance company through Timeless Pets. Both are Clock subsidiaries. Please note Young’s Terrace Street location is closed.

Young’s have been caring for area families since 1949 and Clock’s since 1897. Last year Clock Funeral Home celebrated 120 years of serving Muskegon. That’s a combined commitment of community heritage of 192 years.

“This is really a union of old families friends who have always respected one another and helped each other when extra assistance was needed, “said Dale Clock, Owner and President of Clock’s, “ It just makes sense and will also carry out the two family’s community longevity.”

Both Greg Young and Dale Clock want families who have pre-funded their funeral with Young Funeral Home to know their funeral plan is still guaranteed and funds are secure.
