Hilton Funeral Supply Owner Tom Patten Celebrates Notable Milestone

Share Article

Tom Patten, owner of Hilton Funeral Supply, observes his 30th year in the funeral business. Patten’s knowledge of the niche industry runs deep, with a strong family timeline rooted in the tombstone/monument industry that dates back over a century.

With an impressive family history in the tombstone business that started in 1917, Tom Patten comes from a long line of ancestors who took great pride in helping funeral professionals address the ever-changing needs of families during a challenging time – when a loved one had just passed away.

In today’s modern world, it isn’t every day that we hear about family businesses that remain steadfast from generation to generation, but that seems to be exactly what happened for Tom Patten. His passion for the funeral industry is as strong as his grandfather Maurice’s. Maurice Lyman Patten founded the Utter-Patten Monument Company in Grand Rapids, MI over 100 years ago.

Maurice’s company withstood the test of time, even when up against some of recent history’s bigger challenges, namely The Great Depression. In order to stay afloat in the 1930s, the family bartered goods and services. They had a strong work ethic and an even more impressive drive to help others in their time of need. The first family company in the funeral industry still stands strong today as Patten’s Michigan Monuments.

Tom Patten carried on the impressive work ethic and sharp nose for business that was passed down to him through the bloodline when he started Hilton Funeral Supply nearly three decades ago. His passion has led Hilton Funeral Supply to reimagine, redesign and refresh products over the years to stay current, including prep room materials, promotional products, funeral stationary, and more. Tom says, “My customers are busy building special relationships with the families they serve. We want to make their jobs easier; we want them to find everything they need right here with us.”
