About Us

Our History

The Neff Funeral Home was established by William H. Neff upon his return from the Civil War. After his death, his son Lot H. Neff continued the business for 59 years before turning it over to his son Willard M. Neff, a World War II veteran, who took over the business in 1947. Willard retired in 1955. His son, W. Robert Neff, licensed in 1951, became the owner-operator. In the early 1960’s, by law, the Neff & Son Funeral Home was renamed the W. Robert Neff Funeral Home. Steven R. Neff became a funeral director in 1981, making him the fifth generation. 1996, Curtis J. Kader purchased the business. He retained the name W. Robert Neff Funeral Home, until June 2007 when the business was renamed Kader-Neff Funeral Home & Cremation Services, Inc.
