The program recognizes the best in personalization in the cemetery, funeral service, and cremation profession.

“What makes this award so exceptional is that we are judged against other funeral providers from across the United States, as well as Australia and Brazil. As consumer preferences continue to evolve, we are committed to extending care and compassion to every family we are honored to serve, while putting together a celebration of life that truly reflects each unique individual, incorporating their passions, interests and hobbies,” said Location Manager Craig Green. “We are proud to be the leading providers of both traditional services and more celebratory remembrances.”

Robert Toale & Sons entered the service of John Buzilow, a U.S. Navy veteran, into the 2020 IFFCA KIP Awards program. Buzilow passed away on Sept. 2, 2020. The staff at Robert Toale & Sons Funeral Home created a sunset memorial service on the Siesta Key Beach to honor Buzilow’s life. A Life Story experience, unique to Dignity Memorial locations, was created to greet Buzilow’s family and loved ones. This experience depicted different stages in Buzilow’s life. Each person received their own packaged meal and beverage provided by the caterer’s food truck. As the service ended, family and friends watched the sun set as they remembered Buzilow.
