We were very impressed with the surrounding atmosphere and space. Not the typical velvet drapery funeral home look. It was very cheerful in a respectful way, we felt very comfortable.

We love that Hoy-Kilnoski is family owned. You can feel the warmth and welcome when you enter the doors. Lot's of compliments from the guests on the facility!

Hoy-Kilnoski Funeral Home provides quality, comforting service I am inspired to write to the editor because of the caring support my family and I received from Hoy-Kilnoski Funeral Home upon the death of my husband, Jeff Clausen. Walking down the road of decisions and details to plan a funeral isn’t easy. That is why we very much appreciated and were impressed by the encouragement and care we received from Mike Hoy and his staff. So many details and decisions were taken care of and made simpler for us, even if it wasn’t simpler for Mike. He gracefully said, “whatever you want” or “it will be done” with a smile. I know that more than once my family members looked at each other wondering how Mike could possibly take care of all that he promised; but the wonderful thing is that all we asked for was done – even above and beyond our expectations. The first impression one might have of the Hoy-Kilnoski Funeral home is their beautiful building. However, the heart of this funeral home is not in its facility, but in its people … it is their passion to provide quality, comforting service. They superbly managed the flow of people and the many considerations regarding the visitation and the funeral. We have never before seen such care, such attention to detail, such professionalism and such skill. We were well cared for. Thank you, Mike and Hoy-Kilnoski, for a job well done. You are gifted in creating a peaceful, stress-free atmosphere during a time that is otherwise very difficult. God uses you to encourage and provide hope for families. What you are doing is honestly providing a ministry to hurting people. God’s blessings to you. Chris Clausen, Carson

Being that my father in law passed while out of town, it is a difficult situation. I never thought twice about calling Mike Hoy for my mother in law. He is making this tragedy easier to deal with. His determination to get Gordon home has been comforting. We appreciate his knowledge, drive, and total professionalism.

My father-in-law passed away a few years back and Mike Hoy helped us with all of his preparations. When my own father passed away last week, I knew immediately who would be handling his services. Mike was wonderful as always. The staff is friendly and courteous. They make you feel welcome. No one wants to make funerary arrangements, but if you have to, do yourself a favor and use Hoy-Kilnoski.

Mike and his staff were such a blessing when Rocky passed away. It was a very difficult time and they took care of everything. Mike goes above and beyond to make sure that the desires of the family are met as a professional but his compassion and kindness make him your friend. He is graciously letting us use his facility for an Eagle Scout Ceremony in June for my son and two other Eagle Scouts. Hoy Kilnoski does not only offer first class funeral service but is also here to serve the community and I highly recommend them.

Can't even begin to express our deepest thanks for the comfort & understanding shared during a tragic & difficult time for our family. After losing Mom a few months ago, the unexpected loss of my baby brother was more than we could imagine. No others could EVER compare to the unmeasurable care given to our family. I only wish there was a way to pay your kindness forward. Thanks from the bottom of our hearts for easing this extremely difficult time ~ it has meant so very much. ~The family & friends of Kevin Carrol
