2019 Scholarship Recipients
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
Fairhaven Memorial Park and Mortuary
We are proud to highlight our long-time OCFDA member Fairhaven Memorial Park and Mortuary. Founded in 1911 by Oliver Halsell, Fairhaven Memorial Park has been serving its community for over a century.
Many families come to enjoy the park daily whether it is to visit a loved one, take a stroll through the grounds, or attend one of their cornerstone events Fairhaven organizes each year.
Some of the key events include the Easter Sunrise Service, Memorial Day, Dia de los Muertos, and the “Always in Our Hearts” service of remembrance.
Fairhaven wants everyone to feel welcomed and confident that their staff is just a call away when they are needed most or when the neighborhood wants to gather and enjoy a fun event.
The community is encouraged to attend free movie screenings, car shows, and concerts throughout the summer months.
Additionally, their funeral directors and staff focus on the needs of their families long after disposition. Fairhaven along with Harbor Lawn-Mt Olive,
Pacific View, Westminster Memorial and Dimond & Shannon sponsor LIFT O.C. a social support program exclusively for seniors. They organize outings to museums, botanical gardens and paint nights to name a few.
At LIFT events, Orange County seniors can socialize with others who share similar experiences. Fairhaven’s monthly Support Group and Pet Loss Support Group are also available to anyone who wants to participate.
Last, but certainly not least, Fairhaven is a faithful supporter of the Cypress College Mortuary Science program. Each semester Fairhaven selects and hosts future funeral service practitioners
so they can complete their funeral directing practicums required for graduation.
Thank you Fairhaven for being an outstanding OCFDA member and for serving our community!
