    Honoring Lives Well Lived...

    Chillicothe Monument opened for business in February 2015. Owners Eric Gunnoe, Justin Long, and Dave Strickland feel that honoring a loved one after death is just as important as the respect you give someone while living. A monument is a respectful personalized image for a deceased loved one that all can see.

  • Foundations:

    The Foundation of the monument is essential to the life of the monument because, if not constructed properly, the monument could lean even to the point of falling over. We at Chillicothe Monument will prepare and install the foundation for your monument in accordance with industry standards. We offer, at no additional cost, a foundation warranty. In the unlikely event that the foundation would fail, causing the monument to lean, sink, or fall over, Chillicothe Monument would reset the monument at no cost to the consumer.

     

    Common questions regarding foundations:

    1. Do ALL monument choices require a foundation?

    A grass marker does not require a foundation; and, a bronze marker will go onto either a grass marker or a pre-cast concrete backer.

     

    2. Will Chillicothe Monument do the foundation work for every cemetery?

    Some cemeteries install the foundations and will obtain the necessary information from us to complete the job.

     

    3. What are the requirements for the size of a foundation?

    Cemetery grave plot size can vary and this is important information to have prior to purchasing your monument. Foundations will be based on the size of the base of the monument. Chillicothe Monument will typically have a 2" extended margin outside of the base for the foundation; however, some cemeteries will require a 3" margin.

    Our Work

    At Chillicothe Monument, we treat our clients like family and it is inherently important to us that we are empathetic, kind, intuitive, and thorough in order to provide the best experience possible for a difficult task. From the beginning of the design process to following up with the client after we have set their monument, we want each family to know that they matter and that their concerns and needs have been met.
