“I’m proud to mark this milestone and honor the memory of Walter,” said Cruz. “Walter passed away last August and I am grateful to uphold the compassionate and caring tradition for which the funeral home is known.”

The Cruz-Sojka Funeral Home, formerly known as Walter L. Sojka Funeral Home, was established in 1954 by Walter, a then 23-year-old Korean War veteran. In his will, Walter left the home to Cruz, the former associate director, whom he worked side-by-side with for many years and considered family. To honor the memory of Walter, Cruz renamed it Cruz-Sojka Funeral Home.

“Walter went into this business because he wanted to provide personal, caring service to people in their time of grief,” said Cruz. “I am honored to carry on his legacy and looking forward to many more years of providing this same level of service to the community and celebrating the life of Walter L. Sojka.”
