On January 1, 1969 , Paul J. Lamiell opened the Lamiell Funeral Home in Canton with the mission of serving the Stark County community in a comforting and affordable family like manner after the loss of a loved one. This mission is said in our motto “Our Family Serving Your Family.” As the years progressed the facility has been expanded; his son, Paul J. “PJ” Lamiell, Jr. joined him as a funeral director; preplanned and prefunded funeral planning was introduced and other changes have occurred. One thing has not changed, our motto of
"Our Family Serving Your Family."
