Bruce R. Hawkins Funeral Home specializes in personalized funerals— serving all faiths in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland and Virginia—for more than 30 years. The Hawkins family has been in the funeral business for many generations. Our customers say that we are professional and caring, and we pay great attention to detail.

Our funeral home handles everything for you, from preparing necessary paperwork, such as processing vital statistics, placing obituaries, notifying the Social Security Administration, printing funeral programs, and conducting all funeral and burial services. On July 1, 1983 Bruce opened the Bruce R. Hawkins Funeral Home on Old York Road in the East Oak lane section of the city.

Over 30 years later, he continues to realize his dream of servicing the greater Philadelphia and suburban communities with sensitivity, caring and professionalism. There have been many people along the way that have been an integral part of his journey. He is very proud of his staff, several of whom are relatives, and values each member of his team.

Bruce has been honored on numerous occasions for his commitment to servicing the community by several churches, the Quaker City Funeral Directors, and Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, to name a few. As he looks towards the future, he will continue to live and practice his business motto: From the time she was a baby, Melanie"s parents had her involved in some aspect of the funeral business.

From being featured on the business cards to singing at funerals to passing out programs and reading obituaries, it was inevitable that she would follow in her family"s legacy. After graduating from Spelman College with a BA in Economics, she attended Gupton-Jones College of Funeral Service in Lithonia, GA and received her Associate"s in Funeral Service.

She returned to Pennsylvania to complete her licensing and remains an integral part of the family business. She also holds an MBA in Organizational Management from Drexel University, and resides in West Germantown with her husband, Redmond and their son, Grant.
