What does the ideal pairing of expertise, passion, and service look like? Keith and Tammy Phillips of Goff Funeral Home! Read on to learn more about how these incredible people make Monterey a better place to live.

95 years.

 That’s how long D.M. Goff Funeral Home has been in operation.

 Nearly a century.

 Grief and comfort in Monterey for 95 years.

As one of two funeral options in the city, Goff Funeral Home has held thousands of ceremonies.

 Think about that. Thousands of families have been helped through the pain of death by the various teams at Goff.

 When D.M. “Doc” Goff founded the business in 1927, he had no way of knowing what it would become, or just how capable the hands leading it in 2023 would be.

For the entire 35 years of my life, two people have poured their hearts in making the grieving process possible at Goff Funeral Home; owners Keith and Tammy Phillips.

 Carrying on “Doc’s” spirit of service and human-centric care, Keith and Tammy suffer with the community and they’ve done so countless times.
