Hello my name is Robert Acevez and I am a Licensed Funeral Director born and raised in East Chicago. It has always been a dream of mine to one 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 only opportunity to fulfill this dream. I have more than 20 years’ experience helping families through a difficult time in their lives. My father worked at Inland Steel for more than 34 years and my mother was a nurse for more than 20 years. They both taught me the value of hard work and honesty. This has given me the compassion to serve hard working families who want to have a Funeral Ceremony for their loved ones. This commitment will be my Mission at Acevez Funeral Home.
