Our History

We stand behind our reputation and will continue to serve our community with the values instilled by our funeral directors.

The Konicek & Collett Funeral Home LLC has a long history serving Watervliet and the surrounding communities.  Our funeral home has stood the test of time. In this era of corporate take overs and the loss of family businesses, we continue on our mission.  Our service to your family, not the corporate bottom line, is the priority at Konicek & Collett Funeral Home, LLC as we continue with our mission as a family owned business.  The responsibility of a funeral director is to serve the people of the communities surrounding the funeral home. Our firm can help individuals navigate the difficult process of planning a funeral for a loved one.  

Joe Konicek started a funeral home in the early 50's. His goal was to assist families in their time of need.  He understood that he could help families as a funeral professional.  By today's standards, Joe was unique.  His philosophy was families first, profit second.  Times and technology change but honest service at a fair price never goes out of style.  Jeffery Collett joined the family business as a licensed funeral director and currently operates the funeral home. Jeff is committed to  preserving the traditions of excellent service while meeting the needs of today's families.

We have a beautiful facility that lends itself to personal service.  We are not the largest funeral home in the area.  We offer all of the services that any other funeral home offers.  What sets us apart is the personalized service at a fair price.  It is difficult enough to make funeral arrangements without the pressure to purchase merchandise or services that you do not want.  It is our job to help you plan a fitting service at a price that you are comfortable with.

The values set in place by Joe many years ago still work today.  Modern conveniences, personalized service and a fair price can be expected at Konicek & Collett.  We focus on one family at a time, providing personal attention to every detail.  Call us if you have questions about our business, Jeff will be happy to answer any questions about preplanning a service or assisting your family with an immediate need.

Since our founding, the guiding principle of Konicek & Collett Funeral Home LLC has been the commitment to treating each family who comes to us as our own. Our sincerity, pride, and dedication show that we are committed to this time-honored tradition.

Our family opened the doors of the funeral home years ago. Our reputation for providing the highest quality of service grew, and today Jeff and his staff are honored to serve many areas of families. We hear so many stories from families who paid for high priced funerals. The very same high-quality funerals are available at lower prices.  Lower priced funerals are available without going to the larger "discount" funeral firms.  Call us and discuss the available options.

Jeff and Dan have gathered together a staff of highly-qualified and deeply caring individuals to assist us in continuing the funeral home’s mission of providing excellence in service to families in their time of need.
