Charles Hollis is a class act. Informative, professional, and honest. Of all the funeral homes I contacted (and there were several) he did NOT give a line of bull, and try and sell me services I did not want or need. I was absolutely floored by how I was treated. He is a class act and you don't see that any more. Made a bad situation much better. You will not be disappointed , especially if you have contacted other homes.

Charlie , Mr Hollis is the best, and I mean the best. Very friendly and caring, not just for your family member that has passed , but has great respect for the family. Answered all my questions, returned all my phone calls, text messages and I do believe had gone out of his way to be helpful. And cares deeply about the job he has to do. And I gotta say..... Im sure his job is not an easy one. I thank you Charlie for taking good care of my dad in our time of need and helping my family and I out. Even though thank you never seems enough. And Charlie keeps his word. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

The Hollis family has been dear friends with our family for as long as I can remember. There is no one we would rather trust with our loved ones. You will not get a more personal relationship with any other funeral director and staff! Even with the most complicated of services and family conserns, Hollis funeral home has the ability to mentor you and yours through this tough time. The attention to detail and respect is beyond words! The moment you meet Mr. Charlie Hollis, his family, and staff, you will feel at home and confident that this is the way they want to be remembered. ♡

My family and I were referred to Charlie Hollis when my grandmother unexpectedly passed away. we were from out of town and we didn't know who to turn to. Mr. Hollis was so genuine and sincere, he treated my mother and I like family. We were doing a simple cremation but he treated us with the upmost kindness and respect, and he made the process seamless during a difficult time as we didn't have any prior arrangements. He made sure that we were comfortable with every decision, and that our loved one would be handled with respect. He went out of his way to always be available to answer our questions and ease our concerns. He is man of old fashion values and morale and it shows through his work and service. I highly recommend Mr. Hollis, he is a fair, honest and genuine person, and you will not be disappointed in your decision.

Losing a loved one is never easy. Mr. Hollis did everything in his power to make sure it was as easy on our family as possible. He had such compassion for every single family member. His professionalism and eye for detail are impeccable. I cannot say enough positive things about our experience with Mr. Hollis. We had so many things going on, between a short service, a lot of people and huge procession and Mr. Hollis handled it like a pro and made sure everything ran smoothly. His warmth and compassion and honesty were greatly appreciated. I would recommend Hollis Funeral Home to anyone.

In the recent passing of our mom, Melanie Wadach, we had the opportunity to experience and benefit the professional yet personal service of Hollis Funeral Home. From our first phone call to Charles Hollis through the day of burial, every detail was impeccably met in the most caring, efficient and dignified manner. He listened intently and responded creatively to enable a perfect tribute to our mom. We highly recommend Hollis Funeral Home and sincerely thank Charles for his outstanding support to our family during this difficult time.

Very impressed with the services provided by Hollis Funeral Home. From the very first sit down to discuss the arrangements to the visitation and then finally the day of burial it was orchestrated seamlessly! My grandmother looked absolutely beautiful. The whole family was thrilled and it was just a perfect way to honor this amazing woman!

My family and I cannot express how grateful we are to Charlie Hollis at this very difficult time. We were more than satisfied with all of the arrangements and in the professional and caring way everything was handled. Many thanks also to his daughter Eileen. They are true professionals and truly care about people. Thank you again.

     -Tania Hanouille


My family and I can't say enough good things about the wonderful service provided at Hollis Funeral Home by Mr. Charlie Hollis and his daughter, Eileen, after the recent death of my father. Our wishes were heard and respected. Attention to details was superb. We were guided through a difficult process with grace and tactful good humor, which Dad would have appreciated. We felt treated like family. Hollis Funeral Home earns the highest possible recommendation.

     - John P. O'Brien


To Charlie Hollis and the rest of the Hollis Staff: Thank You All So Much for doing such a beautiful job in reference to our Father's Service (Fred Jones Sr.) Not only was it personalized, but it was also "heartfelt." We're extremely grateful for that. Thank You Again, and God Bless.

When you stay at a five star hotel, you expect the attention to detail to be impeccable. When you bury a loved one, you want that same thing. We have used Hollis Funeral Home for both our mother and father and been very satisfied. From the time Charlie Hollis arrives with the hearse to remove the body, he is respectful and offers the family the TLC they need at this time. He is dressed in suit and tie and his assistants are as professional as he is. The planning meeting can be very stressful. Charlie and his daughter Eileen put everyone in the room at ease with their charming personalities. They offer a large selection of prayer cards and service programs. Cost of a funeral today can be prohibitive. Hollis Funeral Home offers a first class service at a very fair price compared to other local funeral homes. The viewing can be difficult for the family. Guests raved about how wonderful our 90 and 95 year old parents looked in their caskets. Charlie and Eileen are very skilled at cosmetology. When the guests arrive, Charlie and his staff are right there to greet the people, take their coats and make everyone feel at ease. The rooms are clean and decorated beautifully. Plenty of tissues and mints are available for all who need them. The day of the memorial service, whether it be at church or in the home, is probably the most difficult time for the family. Charlie makes everyone feel so at ease with his humor and charisma. Charlie and his daughter make a great team. Eileen created an easy to use website and offers assistance writing lovely obituaries. Both have a sense of professionalism at all times and respect the love the family had for the deceased. Other friends have used Hollis Funeral Home and say the same things. Thank you , Charlie, Eileen and Bill. You did a wonderful job again!!!!!

Thank you Mr Hollis for your kindness and care you showed our family during the difficult loss of our mother. The wake and funeral you gently assisted us in planning was a healing farewell for our family and friends. My mother looked peaceful and beautiful and helped replace our memory of her suffering and pain. The prayers and ceremonies you personally lead were meaningful and comforting to us all. In particular, the rose ceremony, where each member of our family placed a rose with her as we said goodbye. You explained that we would be leaving a piece of ourselves with her for eternity. Even at the burial this ritual was continued while everyone who knew and loved her, touched her coffin leaving their unique DNA, instead of just dropping a flower, as they said their final goodbyes. This simple ritual comforted most who attended. The funeral you and your staff helped us plan for our Mom was truly a healing farewell for all of our family and friends. Thank you again.

Charlie and his daughter Eileen helped make a difficult time for us, more tolerable. They were patient and very accommodating. My brother and I felt comfortable and "heard" when planning a thoughtful and meaningful arrangement for our brother, Dino. Thank you both, from the bottom of our hearts. You fulfilled our family's wishes. Appreciatively,

-The Collacchi family
