Holiday Service

Every Holiday season, the Thomas E. Burger Funeral Home holds a
"Holiday Candlelighting Service" to commemorate the individuals who have passed away within that year.  Families are invited to participate.  They are given the opportunity to light a candle for their loved one during the service, and are presented with a personalized snowflake ornament.
The 2016 Holiday service is available to view in this link.


The Thomas E. Burger Funeral Home annually invites the widows of the previous year to attend a luncheon to honor the memory of their beloved Valentine. 

This is held as close to the actual February 14th date as possible. 

The widows are treated to an entire luncheon and are given a commemorative item in memory of their loved one.

Thomas E. Burger - Citizen of the year 2009

The Village Board named Thomas Burger as Hilton’s Citizen of the Year in 2009.

Tom has been actively involved in serving the Hilton community for many years.

Many people know Tom for the very personal and caring service he provides as Owner and President of the Thomas E. Burger Funeral Home, Inc., located in the Village of Hilton. Tom is also known for the many hours he devotes in the Rotary Club, where he has received the “Paul Harris Fellowship Award”. The award is the highest honor a person can receive in the club, for exemplary “service above self”. Tom’s community involvement doesn’t end there. He is also active with the Masons, was the Chairperson of the Parma Bicentennial Committee and was the Town of Parma Historian for several years.
Tom has many ties with the old families of Hilton and Parma through his strong interest in genealogy.

Tom’s active involvement in the community and dedication to the service of others makes him worthy of the honor of Citizen of the Year. Congratulations Tom!
