R.G & G.R. Harris Funeral Home selected as ‘Best Hometown Funeral Home’ in Livonia competition

R.G & G.R. Harris Funeral Home selected as ‘Best Hometown Funeral Home’ in Livonia competition


When a funeral home is selected as among the best in the community it serves, it has to be seen as a significant achievement.

It’s no wonder then that the recent selection of R.G. & G.R. Harris Funeral Home as “Best Hometown Funeral Home” in the 2016 “Best of Livonia” competition has third generation owner Tom Rost and his manager, David Cash, so excited.

“When my grandfather first began serving his neighbors in 1910, he was really establishing a legacy that his son Tom Harris, along with my father, who was his son-in-law, and my own family have been privileged to continue,” said Rost. “As we extended our family business over the years by adding the Livonia Chapel in 1964 and Garden City Chapel in 1969, we continue to do what we do best, which is to serve families.”

The recognition comes through a “Best of” program run by Bill Joyner, a well-known Western Wayne County personality who writes the popular website.

R.G. & G.R. Harris Funeral Home, at all of its three locations, offers an “every detail considered” level of service designed to accommodate all faiths and traditions. The Livonia location was established in 1964.

“Each one of our funeral homes has been designed and decorated to be comfortable, inviting and accessible, with constant improvements being made,” said owner Tom Rost. “I have no doubt whatsoever that it’s this attention to detail that has led to our being recognized as Best Hometown Funeral Home in Livonia.”

Rost and his team of caring professionals were also recognized for this distinction by Livonia Treasurer Lynda L. Scheel and Mayor Dennis K. Wright, as well as the Wayne County Commission.

R.G. & G.R. Harris Funeral Home, founded in 1910, is a full-service, three-location family operated business now in its fourth generation. Priding itself on providing exemplary service through its three locations—in Garden City, Livonia and Detroit—the firm offers complete pre-planning service, as well as options for a variety of services and ceremonies, along with a full range of cremation services. The Livonia facility is located at 15451 Farmington Rd., just north of 5 Mile Road. Call 734-422-6720 to inquire about services or visit
