About Us

As of Friday, September 5th, 2008, the Langan Funeral Home is pleased to announce the purchase of the Robert A. Guffin Funeral Home of 108 Chapel Street, Cobleskill. The Langan Funeral Home is fortunate to have been successful in acquiring this historic building in the village of Cobleskill. We will strive to carry on the traditions and quality service that Mr. Robert Guffin has provided the greater Cobleskill area since 1963. The untimely death of Mr. Guffin and, most recently his wife, Betty in November of 2007 prompted this purchase. As we look to the future of serving a greater area than before, we are committed to providing quality funeral service with respect and dignity.

Thank you for visiting our site, and as always, please feel free to contact any of our locations about services that we provide. We are always available and look forward to meeting new friends in the Cobleskill area.

Planning a Funeral

Pre-Planning

Life Choices

Most of us plan ahead in life. We plan for our wedding, our children's education, family vacations, and other significant expected life events. We also plan for the unexpected events of life by purchasing home, auto and medical insurance.

Understanding the benefits of pre-planning has prompted many to take the step to pre-plan their own arrangements.

Please call us at 518/295-8175 to set up an appointment to discuss pre-planning with a caring professional.

Why Pre-Plan?

Peace of Mind
Many who have undergone the emotional strain of arranging a funeral within hours of losing a loved one have made the choice to pre-plan their own funeral. Doing so lifts the burden from their loved ones by relieving decision-making pressure at a time of grief and emotional stress.

Personal Choice
Funeral arrangements are a deeply personal choice. Pre-planning provides you with the time needed to make practical, detailed decisions that reflect your standards, lifestyle, taste and budget. And we assure you and your family that the choices you make will be carried out as planned.

Lower Costs
When you finalize your plan, we can advise you of the total cost. You do not have to set aside funds for your plan, but doing so protects you against escalating funeral costs. By locking in today's funeral costs and ensuring that the necessary funds are set aside, you help relieve yourself of unnecessary future worry and your survivors of an unexpected expense.

Immediate Arrangements

In Time of Need

We understand that making the many decisions which come at a time of loss can be difficult. We offer our support by providing you with options as you consider making immediate arrangements.

Please call us at 518/295-8175 to make arrangements in person with a caring, professional Funeral Director.
