With more than 15 years of experience between the pair, LeRoy and Nelly Briones said they could not pass up on an opportunity to provide Uvaldeans with a second option for funeral services. In September of 2017 the couple opened Hillcrest Memorial Funeral Home, located at 424 Geraldine St.
Services are available 24 hours, seven days a week but office hours are Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. The funeral home can be reached at 830-333-9036.
Staff includes funeral director LeRoy Briones; funeral attendants Nelly Briones, Al Briones, Cody Briseno, Dana Torres and Elizabeth Hernandez; and office secretary Katherine Fulton.
“We are new to Uvalde,” LeRoy Briones said. “We took over the building five months ago. This building has been a funeral home since the mid-70s so when we came in we completely renovated the inside and outside of the building.”
The building consists of a front office, arrangement room, chapel, display room, where funeral merchandise including caskets and urns can be viewed; and a family reception room, where the bereaved family can convene in private. Every room is complete with a flat-screen television.
