About Our Funeral Home
We know there are other funeral homes serving our area, and would never do anything to disparage their services or undermine their success.
Yet, we need you to know that our funeral home is truly different. We take great pride in the care we provide the families we serve, and invite you to browse this section of our website to learn this simple truth for yourself: the experienced staff of our funeral firm is committed to doing everything we can to meet, and exceed, your expectations.
In the 1930s and 40s, J. Goodyear & Sons operated a funeral business as a small part of their larger construction company. Grand Falls Funeral Home was incorporated on January 22 1965 to stand on its own. In the late 1960s, a location in Gander was added, thus changing the name to "Central Funeral Homes”. In 1977, Terry Goodyear further separated the funeral home by selling off his interest in J. Goodyear & Sons and keeping the funeral home business. In 1978, a location in Springdale was added. In 2000, Michael & Sheila Goodyear took over the reins and helped move the business into the 21st century. In 2010 they opened the Bishop's Falls location.
