About Us

The name Dale Ranck has been synonymous with end-of-life care for generations in Northumberland and surrounding Counties. Located in Milton, the firm continues today as a family owned business providing both traditional and contemporary burial and cremation services.

In 1997, the firm became part of the Heffner family owned funeral homes. The facility has been renovated inside and out. You’ll find our facilities to be clean, spotless and comfortable.

Who can I talk with? You can call us 24/7 and talk with Mark Strobel. If he is not available, funeral director Ben Blascovich can help. You can read about our associates at Our Staff.

Mark Strobel joined the firm in May 2012 and lives in Milton with his family. In addition to being a licensed funeral director and serving as the licensed supervisor of Dale Ranck Cremation & Funeral Care, Mark is also a Certified Crematory Operator and a Certified Celebrant.

Mark and our staff all understand that when someone loses a loved one, it's the worst day of the survivor's life. They are available 24/7 offering non-judgmental service, a safe place to go and sensitive, flexible people who can help you.

Who owns the company? Married in 1976, Ernie and Laura Heffner own the company. Ernie, the president of Dale Ranck Cremation & Funeral Care, began his career in funeral service in 1974 when he joined his father in the family business. In 1981, John Katora joined the firm and today serves as V.P. of the family business. Both Ernie and John were mentored by Ernie’s late father, Jim Heffner, who instilled values not only about serving but specifically about caring for the deceased as well as the grieving family and friends. At Dale Ranck Cremation & Funeral Care, those values continue today with a team of the very best, compassionate and caring staff in the profession led by Mark Strobel.

What makes us different than other funeral homes? We strive to be at the forefront of innovation in customer service creating unique life tributes for every family served. We believe every life is worth remembering and every service provided is must be beautifully memorable, more than expected and perfect in every way.

Please be assured that you and your family can call us 24/7 with confidence knowing that someone will answer your call and, with compassion and understanding, be available to help. You and your family deserve no less.
