Roper & Sons Funeral Home has served Lincoln, Nebraska families with honor, integrity, and dignity for over 115 years.

Roper & Sons Funeral Home was founded in December 1901, when Charles H. Roper began offering funeral services with Charles Beecher. The first facility opened at 124 South 13th Street, and began the longstanding tradition of offering funeral services with the honor, integrity, and dignity that Lincoln deserves.  The current building at 4300 O Street was opened in 1959 and continues as our primary facility today.

Roper & Sons Funeral Home continues to uphold Charles H. Roper’s commitment to serving Lincoln residents and the surrounding communities as well as keeping the business in the hands of family. The business is now managed by Tom Roper and Dean Schneider, along with Bill Roper and Charles "Pooch" Roper.
