Charles Heizenroth III Funeral Director & President Emeritus

A lifelong member of the Ashland community Charlie Heizenroth has been serving families of northern Schuylkill County since 1985.  He attended Penn State University and Simmons Institute of Mortuary Science to achieve the requirements of the Pennsylvania State Board of Funeral Directors.  He then served a 12-month internship under Frederick “Fritz” T. Kull, FD.  After becoming the owner of the Kull Funeral Home, he acquired the Edward J. Stauffer Funeral Home in Ringtown. Later in 2015 he expanded yet once again to purchase the Willard Rothermel Funeral Home-Mount Carmel and the Ray Rothermel Funeral Home-Elysburg.  In early January 2022, Charlie decided to turn over ownership to Shawn & Melissa Clark and ease into retirement.  Charlie is still involved and will continue to serve families in their time of need on a limited basis so he can spend more time with his own family.  He is a source of guidance and support to both Shawn and Melissa.  Since early on in Shawn’s career as a funeral director, Charlie was a mentor to him.   The Clark family will be forever grateful for the opportunity that was given them by Charlie & Tracey Heizenroth.
