Cedar Rapids, Iowa
Horrible, devastating experience. Wish they had negative marks for funeral directors.

Ames, Iowa
My parents passed away recently. We used stevens funeral home both times. For my fathers memorial they rushed us and cut the memorial short by 35 minutes. People showed up after we were rushed out of there... They didnt allow people to get up and speak about my father because they were in such a hurry for us to leave early. We paid ahead of time for burial of the urns... After 3 months there is still no name on the burial site, even though plaques were paid for ahead of time.... Wish we would have gone elsewhere! Very unhappy! Also the building is very small and not well set up to have a funeral.

The owner, Frank Patti, is an egomaniac and controlling asshole, has quite a track record fired from Lebers in 1967, indicted on embezzlement charges placed on cease/desist order from 1975 to 1981 from Volks, sells caskets for Batesville horrifying funeral directors in New Jersey and New York for 6 years and claims hes better than anyone within 300 miles. Frank, a survey was taken, you along with Peter Kulbacki, Richard Holle, Bruce VanTassel, Bart Brazinski and Scott Nimmo, voted most hated funeral directors in New Jersey.
