Robert Williams Owner and Funeral Director

Bob was born in Butte Montana in 1960, he is one of six children. The son of Butte America natives Jean (Sweeney) and Ralph Williams. In 1968 the family moved to Missoula, Montana. Bob worked in the timber industry for almost 20 years. In the mid 80’s early 90’s the timber industry took a turn for the worst. Timber sales were getting harder and harder to secure (that darn spotted owl), saw mills began closing down. Bob and his wife Judy (deceased in 2002) and their daughter Sarah (six years old at that time) sold their home in Thompson Falls, Montana and moved to Portland, Oregon where Bob began mortuary school, working towards his second career as a Mortician. After graduating from Mount Hood Community College with a degree in Mortuary Science, and spending most of his 20 plus years as a Mortician in Billings, Montana, he is thrilled to be back in the trees and mountains of Idaho helping the folks of Lemhi and Custer Counties.

Hailey Burch Office Manager

Hailey was born and raised in the Salmon Valley. After high school, she began working as a C.N.A. and developed a love for helping and caring for others in their time of need. She began working for Bob in 2018, and shortly after that he bought the business. When she’s not at the funeral home, you can most likely find her playing in the mountains or chasing around her three kids. Hailey is a licensed insurance agent as well as the office manager, she is always available to answer any questions you may have about pre-arrangements.
