About Us

One of the Christian's corporal works of mercy is the burial of the dead.  In our context, burying of the dead is more than wrapping the body with linen and sealing the body in a tomb on the hillside.

The care for the departed has been professionalized and we, who have made this corporal work our mission, have raised the level of our services to the needs and demands of the times.

This mission humbly started in 1950 when the Gegato family established Gegato Funeral Homes in our town of Guimbal, Iloilo, Philippines.  Given the highest client satisfaction by the town we were able to create a name and patent to our services as the leading funeral service provider in the region.

Gegato-Abecia Funeral Homes, Inc. is here to help people complete the relationship with the one who has died and to provide a climate that encourages each person to give and receive emotional support. During the funeral service, family and friends have the opportunity to relate to each other at the deepest levels and find mutual strength.

Our Mission

As a Christian-centered corporation, we see to it that the families in the moment of their grief can conveniently give personal and meaningful tribute to their loved ones.

Our Vision

We provide quality, decent and services and assistance to all individuals of all classes.  We have a special package for indigents.

Our funeral home organization is here to  pay personal attention to individual needs and provide the most tender, professional care for your family.

Caring for families . . . celebrating lives.

Taking the cue from our beloved mother, we have been rendering our services in all these years, with a special touch so that our dear departed will rest with dignity. We have grown just as our public acceptability has grown. 

Our goal at Gegato-Abecia Funeral Homes & Crematory, Inc. is to provide the most caring and thoughtful service possible. By accomplishing this goal and striving for perfection with every family we serve we will help to lighten your burden and our goal has been accomplished.
