J. Allen Hooper Funeral Chapel was established in 1923 by J. Allen and Rita Hooper. J. Allen and Rita were the owners and operators of the funeral home until Mr. Hooper's death. Rita sold the funeral home to Peter J. "Jack" Soltis, Jr. in 1978.
Jack had worked for Mr. Hooper as an intern and was very familiar with the town and the philosophy that the funeral home was built on. Originally located on Pennsylvania Avenue, we moved locations in 1983 to a facility that could better accommodate business needs. We are still located here today.
Our entire staff is dedicated to the families we work with and we've consistently committed ourselves to ensuring that we make this time as stress free as possible. Many of our staff members have been with us for years. Ken Van Aken worked at the funeral home from 1945 until his passing several years ago. Ken’s wife, Helen, has been working as administrative staff and also as the hairstylist for many years. Steve Ullrich has been with our funeral home since 1988. Steve is currently a co-owner, vice-president, and supervisor of the funeral home. Jessica Cardona is a Hamilton Township, NJ native, and is currently serving her internship at the funeral home. Amanda Shapiro is currently studying at Mercer County Community College and is also serving her internship with us.
We've sponsored the Little League Championship Baseball team since 1955 and continue to sponsor and support this organization. In addition, we support Morrisville High School, Holy Trinity School, and many other organizations and clubs in the community. We believe in giving back and supporting our community right here in Morrisville, Pennsylvania and surrounding areas.
On behalf of the entire staff at J. Allen Hooper Funeral Chapel and Cremation Services, it is our honor and privilege to provide service to the families of Morrisville, Yardley, Falls Township, Lower Makefield Township, and our surrounding communities.
