About Us

Since 1921 the Ertel Funeral Home has served Southwest Colorado, Southeast Utah, and Northeast Arizona, as well as two Native American tribes, the Navajo and Ute Mountain Ute tribes. Three generations of Ertel morticians have helped tend the family business: J. Walter Ertel operated the funeral home until 1956; his son, Walter E. Ertel, from 1956 to 1992; and his grandson, Keenan G. Ertel, from 1993 to the present. J. Walter Ertel felt a deep commitment to his community and the area he served. This ideal has been carried through each generation that followed.
