Horan & McConaty’s story began in 1890, when John Horan’s great-grandparents settled down in Denver to open a funeral home at the northwest corner of 15th and Platte Streets in lower downtown. In 1919, Jim McConaty opened the doors of McConaty’s Boulevard Mortuary at Speer and Federal. Both families maintained a strong presence in the Denver community and passed the funeral care tradition to each generation, with John purchasing Horan & McConaty Funeral Service and Cremation in 1986.
We are proud of our heritage as Denver’s most preferred family-operated funeral home. We now serve our community with seven different locations and have expanded our staff, but we continue to hold the same values of family, community, and duty to the people we serve.
We strive to provide world-class facilities and services that offer comfort and meaning to families in their darkest hours. We believe that funerals serve a vital role in giving people a chance to come together to share in celebration and heartache. That was true when we opened our doors in a small Colorado village over a century ago, and it’s just as true today.
The city has grown a lot since we held our first funeral, but it’s still our home. We are honored to help our community of friends and neighbors celebrate the lives of their loved ones so that they may begin their journey of healing from loss.
