A letter from the Vice President…

We are a second generation company and I would be doing you a dis-service if I didn’t mention the person responsible. My father, Ted, is a retired Marine Sergeant, where he served his country proudly. Later on he became the superintendent of Holy Sepulchre Cemetery. It was there where he decided to take the next step and start Century Monument from our house. Shortly after, he purchased property on Columbia Street, where we are still located to this very day. Dad donated to many youth organizations and schools over the years. He also provided monuments and markers to families in need when they experienced unforeseen tragedy. Unfortunately he passed away in June, 2019. Like so many families I deal with today, it was a great loss. I learned a lot from him over the years, but nothing more than the importance of what customer care should be like in our business. I want to assure you, that will continue. Like you, I’ve lost someone I truly loved.

-Tim Burek
