Robinson-Walker Funeral Home
165 East Water Street
Oak Harbor, OH 43449
A century ago, it was common for furniture store owners to get into funeral service as well – after all they were the ones building the beautiful wood caskets. This was the case for Hetrick & Son Furniture in downtown Oak Harbor back in the 1920s. The W.H. Hetrick family opened Oak Harbor’s first funeral home in a large Victorian home that was built in the late 1800s on East Water Street.
After World War II, the Hetricks sold the funeral home to Glenn and Mary Robinson, who also provided ambulance service to the community and sounded the fire alarms in the community for many years. Later, they purchased the Cecil Welch Funeral Home in Genoa. In 1985, they sold the funeral home to their employees, Donald P. Henn and James W. Brossia. In 1989, Gary Walker – the son of our founder – purchased the firm, bringing the Walker family tradition of service to Oak Harbor.
Intimate and traditionally decorated, our Robinson-Walker Funeral Home is the perfect choice for families who want that mixture of old-world charm with modern conveniences.
