Welcome to the William A. Bautz Funeral Home

Now Located at 139 Main Street, New Eagle, the William A. Bautz Funeral Home has taken advantage of the opportunity to move to a larger facility located on the busy main thoroughfare as it passes through the borough of New Eagle. Also it is with a great sense of pride and community that I am able now to serve the people of my hometown of which I have been a part of for 44 yrs.  The funeral home is located in the historic and beautiful building that was once the Abbott Hotel in New Eagle.  The funeral home’s spacious facility and ample parking area, along with other special amenities like the coffee lounge and children’s area, as well as the building being handicapped accessible, sets us apart from the other funeral homes in the area.  This along with my commitment to affordable, caring funeral services to the community, provide our families with the consistent personal service they so rightly deserve and have come to expect from my 27 years in funeral service.


I have been active in our community for many years and enjoy my activity as a member and Past Exalted Ruler of the BPOElks Lodge #455, a member of the Knights of Columbus Council 2600 and a 4th Degree Knight, a Mason and the Sons of the American Legion.  I have also been recognized as a humanitarian for the various awards I have received for helping the less fortunate. I still look on funeral service as a vocation and as a work of love.


I am glad to be home in New Eagle and I am here to help you in your time of need. We offer so many things other funeral homes do not, we can make anything happen, I am only limited by the families’ imagination.

We continue to move on through the year as we finally get to spring. We also prepare for the beginning of summer as Memorial Day is seen as the traditional kickoff for summer. We must not forget the true purpose of Memorial Day as a day to commemorate those who served and lost their lives in the service of our country. Originally begun as Decoration Day in May of 1868, The holiday was observed after the civil war with people decorating the graves of those who lost their lives both north and south. It then grew into a national observance and in later years encompassed all who lost their lives in service to our country and the date finally fell to the last Monday of May to give the additional day to the weekend. We must remember and honor those who served and sacrificed their lives in the service of our country. The William A. Bautz Funeral Home was one of the first funeral homes in the area to give veterans a economical funeral package and still offer that package at a service to veterans and their families. Also remember that June 14 is Flag Day and we honor the nation’s flag and what it represents. Keep these patriotic dates and try to do a little extra to help those veteran’s and people who are less fortunate.
