Local Funeral Service Returns to Fort Wayne

What brought Jarod Steffen, Mark Scheidt, Lucas Glessner and Britton Claghorn together as partners in FairHaven was the belief that a locally-owned funeral home experience had gone missing for families in Fort Wayne. 

After arranging the personal details and tender wishes of people they’d served for decades, they’d come to the realization that their view of funeral care differed from their corporate counterparts. They believed that they could simply serve families better.

Together, they have assisted Fort Wayne families for over 70 years with kind, empathetic service, unassailable credentials and a life-long kinship to the people and place they are proud to call home.

“Fort Wayne deserves premium funeral service at a fair price, and it’s our desire to bring our brand of compassionate care and quality to every family we serve,” the partners said recently.

FairHaven Funeral Home is determined to make sure an affordable and uniquely local alternative is available to you and your family during times of need. With FairHaven, you’ll never have to worry that you paid too much, or that the decisions affecting your arrangements were made elsewhere.

News & Events
FairHaven Funeral Home has entered into an ownership agreement with four highly respected Fort Wayne-area funeral directors. Joining FairHaven today as co-owners are Jarod Steffen, Mark Scheidt, Britton Claghorn and Lucas Glessner. The quartet of experienced funeral directors are well known to each other and many families throughout the Fort Wayne area, as they have practiced locally for many years and been involved in numerous organizations. Funeral service in Fort Wayne has traditionally been known as “locally owned” and today FairHaven upholds that distinction. We combine locally owned, local service, and the best funeral value in Fort Wayne. FairHaven Funeral Home has been providing top-tier service to families since 2016. The funeral and cremation provider has created a unique environment by bringing a fresh, contemporary feel to their facility. Additionally, FairHaven typically saves consumers as much as 40 percent when compared with similar services offered by other Fort Wayne funeral homes. “Fort Wayne is our home. The city continues to grow and change, but its traditional values and strong families remain the same,” said Mark Scheidt, a funeral director for 28 years and father of four. “My partners and I bring the excellence and love of service that Fort Wayne deserves.” Jarod Steffen, a licensed Funeral Director for 14 years, has served the Fort Wayne area for a decade. Steffen is actively involved in his church community, and he is a supporter of the Leo- Grabill Little League and Fort Wayne Rescue Mission. An avid runner, he also enjoys spending time with his wife and two children. Britton Claghorn started his funeral service career in Bluffton in 2005 and graduated from Vincennes University with a degree in Funeral Services in 2007. He became a licensed Funeral Director in the State of Indiana in 2008. “Being from a small town means that I will take care of your family like my own,” Claghorn said. “I’m committed to building a lasting relationship and will do whatever I can to make your experience memorable and unique.” Lucas Glessner has been in the funeral business for 18 years and has served Fort Wayne and surrounding communities for 16 years. Born and raised in nearby Avilla, Glessner is married and has two children. FairHaven provides a full range of funeral and cremation services and accommodates families of different faiths and denominations. Scheidt added that he is confident that this group brings a love of their fellow citizens and a passion to serve that is without compare.

We provide our families with an open door policy. Please feel free to contact us 24 hours a day. We are on N. Clinton St., north of Bishop Dwenger H.S., directly across from Concordia Seminary

We would like to thank all of you for helping to make my mom’s visitation and memorial service such a beautiful experience. Your kind words and compassion made a sad day easier to get through. The luncheon you provided after the service was wonderful! And though we had more people attend than we planned on, you were able to accommodate everyone comfortably. We will recommend your funeral home to anyone who may have a need for your services. Thank you again for all your love and care.
A. Wade & Family
