Welcome to the Orange County Funeral Directors Association (OCFDA),
a non-profit organization comprised of mortuaries, funeral directors and businesses that primarily serve the funeral industry in Orange County, California
It is with great pleasure that we spotlight our long-time OCFDA member Art Rosen. We recognized Art’s years of service in the industry at our Installation Dinner this past January.
Billy Eaton from Matthews Aurora Funeral Solutions prepared a wonderful speech. For those who were not in attendance, please read-on as we pay tribute to a man
that has dedicated his life to this profession. |

Matthews Aurora Funeral Solutions
Art started his journey in 1959 at his family business South Gate Casket. He spent many years there eventually helping through the merger with San Fernando Casket and the
creation of S&S Casket. He took his experience to Golden State Casket Company before becoming Operations Manager for Hillside Memorial in the late 80’s. In 1990, he joined York Casket,
which became Matthews in 2010 and now Matthews Aurora Funeral Solutions.
He is a well-known face at Orange County Funeral Directors Association events. Not only is he one of our founding members he also served as Treasurer and has always been supportive of our organization.
The California Funeral Directors Association awarded him Vendor of the Year in recognition of his years of service, hard work and compassion. Now Art is retiring after 60-years in the industry! We wish him well and many relaxing years to come.
Thank you Art for your commitment to us and to all the families we serve. Our hats off to you!
