Garrett W Hurd, Funeral Assistant
Robert Finley has been with Hurd Family Funeral Homes since 2013. He helps families after a time of loss through our Aftercare program and he also assists families with information about Pre-planning a funeral. He has helped hundreds of people Pre-plan their own funeral so that their loved ones will not be forced to make difficult choices at the time of loss.
Robert and his family are members of Riverside Community Church in Peoria, IL where he volunteers as the Missions Director. As a U.S. Navy Hospital Corpsman, he cared for many service members. During his free time, he enjoys the little things in life....like a freshly mowed lawn, a long stroll on a country road, or fun and games over a bowl of home made ice cream with family and friends.
