Hello my name is Robert Acevez and I am a Licensed FuneralDirector born and raised in East Chicago. It has always been my dream toone day be able to take care of the community that I know as home. When Mr.Lesniak told me of his plans to retire, I felt this would be my one and onlyopportunity to fulfill this dream. I have more than 20 years’ experiencehelping families through a difficult time in their lives. My father worked atInland Steel for more than 34 years and my mother was a nurse for more than 20years. They both taught me the value of hard work and honesty. This has givenme the compassion to serve hard working families who want to have a FuneralCeremony for their loved ones. This commitment will be my Mission at AcevezFuneral Home.
