Howden-Kennedy prepares their new location; Forced to move by development

The Howden-Kennedy Funeral Home, a fixture in West Seattle since the 1920's is preparing their new temporary and eventually permanent home facility at 7601 35th Avenue SW. The West Seattle Herald was the first to report the move. Office Manager Stuart Johnston shared that "The interior is being renovated by a local contractor, PRR Construction, and will be finished by Friday. The signage will also be finished by COB Friday.

The sign painting is being done by a local sign painter, Glenn Case. We will then get furniture and phone lines installed over the following three weeks. Phones and services will be switched from the 3909 SW Alaska St facility to the 7601 35th Avenue SW facility on the morning of Monday, August 26, with all telephone numbers remaining the same. This will allow for a seamless transition from one place to the other, creating no inconvenience for the families we serve.

Design and planning is ongoing for the new building that will be constructed on the site where the temporary facility is located.

We want to reiterate that there will be no break in service for the funeral home or the families and customers we serve, and if anyone has questions or concerns, then we ask that they call us at 206-932-0356 and we will be happy to explain how this will all work."
