Stanley Spitler, Superintendent of Ferncliff Cemetery and President of Ferncliff Funeral Home. Stan joined Ferncliff Cemetery in 1990, was promoted to Assistant Superintendent the following year and became Superintendent in 2003. During his tenure, Ferncliff significantly expanded its services to better meet the needs of the families it serves. Educated and experienced in turf and landscape technology, Stan worked tirelessly to enhance the 240 acres of historic and picturesque grounds, allowing Ferncliff to add “Arboretum” to its name in 2005.
In response to the increasing number of families choosing cremation, Stan oversaw the installation of an onsite crematory in 2013, followed by the 2017 opening of the House of Reflections, an exquisitely restored building featuring glass-fronted niches. Also in 2017, the addition of Ferncliff Funeral Home advanced Ferncliff’s ability to provide fully coordinated care, from the time of one’s passing to their final resting place.
Stan holds a degree in Applied Science from Clark State College and is a resident of Donnelsville, in Clark County.
