For almost 90 years the Millspaugh and Camerato families have provided Greene County with professional, compassionate and affordable funeral services. Millspaugh Funeral Home has come a long way from its early beginnings to a well-respected funeral home serving all cultures, faiths and religions.
Both Peter Hoyt and Nick Camerato realize they would not be able to carry on the traditions and standards originally set by Harry Millspaugh, Henry and Clarice Millspaugh and Mary Millspaugh Camerato Hoyt, if it were not for the dedication of their entire staff.
All of our employees at Millspaugh Camerato realize the depths of compassion and integrity needed to help families at their time of loss. Being a funeral director has always been more a calling than a profession. Bob Gaus has complete confidence that every last detail will be handled with care and compassion. The directors at Millspaugh Camerato are able to arrange national and international transfers, pre-arrangements and cremations, as well as traditional funerals and memorial services.
