Pike Funeral and Cremation Services, The Boyd Chapel is Bridgman's oldest business. First known as W.F Hall the business was started by Fred and Anna Hall in 1920. The Hall's sold the funeral home in 1953 to Howard and Hazel Boyd and became known as Boyd Funeral Home. In 1973 the funeral home was sold to the Boyd's son-in-law and daughter, Gerald and Sandy Vigansky. In April of 1997 Kraig and Rachel Pike moved to Bridgman from Muskegon, Michigan. During Kraig's ten year tenure in Muskegon, Kraig was a funeral director at Sytsema Funeral Homes. In July of 2001 the Vigansky's sold the funeral home to Kraig and Rachel Pike and the name as soon changed to Boyd-Pike Funeral Home.
In August of 2005 the funeral home on Lake Street was destroyed by fire. In September, 2006 the funeral home re-opened in Lake Township as Pike Funeral Home, Boyd Chapel. Today Bridgman's oldest family owned and operated business is named for the services we offer the families who trust their loved ones into our care, Pike Funeral and Cremation Services, The Boyd Chapel.
The death of a loved one is the single most difficult moment of your life. When you call our funeral home, be comforted in knowing that you will face this moment with the help of a compassionate staff who truly cares. It is this thread, this "commitment to caring," which is woven into our cloak of service.
We encourage memorialization through funeral service to become a celebration of a life lived. We invite and nurture family participation in all aspects of the funeral service, from choosing photographs and heirlooms to display during a visitation time or memorial service, to selecting readings and music which will reflect the lifestyle of the person we honor.
It is our desire to treat each family as we ourselves would like to be treated. To every family who places their trust and confidence in us, we are humbled and grateful to be of service in your time of need.
