Welcome to the Gilman & Valade Funeral Home

Planning a funeral is one of life’s most difficult challenges. Yet virtually every culture recognizes the importance of commemorating the life and loss of a loved one with a meaningful ceremony. Hello, this is Bob Fournier, owner and funeral director of the Gilman Funeral Home and Cremation Service in Putnam and the Valade Funeral Home and Cremation Service in North Grosvenordale. Funerals don’t just signify that a life has ended. They signify that a life was lived and loved. Funerals offer survivors the opportunity to mourn their loss amongst family and friends and to begin the healing process. But what type of funeral service should you choose? Since no two people are alike, no two funerals should be alike. At the Gilman and Valade Funeral Homes and Cremation Service, we understand the importance of personalizing a funeral. We’ll guide you step by step, and help you create a meaningful event that celebrates your loved one’s unique life and helps the bereaved cope with their loss. Planning a funeral is one of life’s most difficult challenges. Let us, the staff at Gilman and Valade Funeral Homes and Cremation Service, be your personal guide.
