Our experienced and professional staff is dedicated to helping our families...



Darren R. Clevers
Senior Licensed Funeral Director


I originally joined the Allen Brothers family as a part-time office assistant and then became a full-time Mortuary Assistant.  I found helping families to be such a positive experience that I then became an Arrangement Counselor. 

Now, as a Licensed Funeral Director, I continue to look forward to every day as a new opportunity to help families say goodbye to a loved one in a special way which helps bring peace of mind.



Tonya L. Price
Senior Licensed Funeral Director
and Licensed Embalmer


Since a very early age, I have always been interested in working with families and making sure that their loved one's wishes are carried out.  As an embalmer as well, I look forward to presenting a loved one with a pleasant and memorable final farewell.

After working in a large funeral home chain for more than 10 years, I have found it to be a very pleasant and positive experience working at Allen Brothers; each employee is treated like a family member.


John R. Caramanno
Licensed Funeral Director
and Licensed Embalmer


I am a strong believer in the Golden Rule.  I believe that everyone should be treated in a respectful, dignified, and honorable manner.  It is a cardinal aspect to always go above and beyond for a family, as these people are suffering through the worst days of their lives.

I'm orginally from the East Coast and am happily settled in as part of the Allen Brothers family and enjoying the California sunshine.



Alora B. Bartlett 
Arrangement Counselor


I enjoy working for a family owned and operated funeral home because it gives me the freedom to help my families with care and compassion tailored to fit their individual needs.  Every family has different concerns and I am happy to use my experience to guide them throught the difficult process of funeral arranging.

Whether it is a full service traditional funeral or a direct cremation, I take my time to address their concerns and provide them with the services they need.  I want every family to feel comfortable with the process and leave Allen Brothers feeling like we did everything we coud to make it easier for them. 



Hollis K. Del Soldato
Licensed Funeral Director
Apprentice Embalmer


With every family, I believe in treating each person as if they are a member of my own family and making sure that everything I do is to make sure their family's loss is just a little bit easier.



Kenneth O. Radford
Mortuary Assistant


I find it rewarding to be able to help people work through the details during this time of grief and loss.  Everybody is unique in their own way of preparing for this day, but many are still caught off guard.  I feel that's a big reason why we are here to help.
