We're here for our Community

Family-Owned and Operated for Over 100 years.

Since first opening our doors as P.C. Lloyd Funeral Home in 1923, Steckley-Gooderham Funeral Home has been deeply rooted in the local community, assisting families in Barrie and the surrounding area for over 100 years. Having experienced three changes in ownership since our inception (Walter Steckley in 1938, Bud and Linda Gooderham in 1981 and Jeffrey Scott in 2009), and still family-owned and operated today, we pride ourselves on our ability to grow and evolve with the community and ever-changing family traditions.

With 'traditional-structured' funeral services being requested less often, we strive to change how people think about funeral service, and work with families to always find the best possible way to celebrate their loved ones. Whether that's a more streamlined funeral schedule, a celebration of life or reception all held at the same time in one room, a live-streamed or remotely-planned service, or having a Harley-Davidson and a motorcycle helmet as an urn present in the chapel to really showcase someone's personality and passions, we're here to help. We work diligently to keep clients feeling safe and families supported, no matter their wishes.

We are dedicated to continuing to deliver the care you have come to expect from Steckley-Gooderham Funeral Home, upholding your traditions while creating new ones with you. With a rich history and a focused future vision, we're excited to serve you for another 100 years to come.
