Our Founder, Weston Behner, joined Campbell's Funeral Home on February 15, 1930. He purchased the business with his partner, Ross Dudgeon, in 1936 and later purchased Mr. Dudgeon's interest in 1937.
Weston welcomed his son, Fred, into the business when Fred acquired his Funeral Director's License in 1970.
Weston passed away on October 14, 1987, but his son, Fred with wife Nancy, and a dedicated staff, continue the exceptional quality of care and service. In 1988, Fred welcomed fellow Director, Arnold Weirup, from Maquoketa, Iowa.
Behner Funeral Home has been in the same location for 85 years, and in 2003, a crematorium was added to provide on-site service for Fairfield and the surrounding communities. In addition to the crematory, casket and urn selection rooms were also added, as well as additional handicap facilities (restrooms & ramps).
