We are proudly family owned, family operated

and family minded.

DeStefano Funeral Home, Durham's largest funeral home, is owned by Steve and Sandy Horvath, and operated by their daughter Adrienne Irvine and an amazing team committed to service excellence. We are truly a Canadian family business.

Born in Hungary, Steve came to Canada with a group of visitors for the Olympics in 1976.  It was at the end of his ten day stay that he decided to stay and make a life for himself in Canada. As an experienced business man, Steve knew that opening a new business would require hard work and dedication.  Embracing long, healthy relationships with the community, the funeral home opens its space and has become a place where neighbours can gather - a place of learning and growth.

Steve, with wife Sandy, daughter Adrienne and sons Steven and Brian are committed to providing personal family service.
