History

Voran Funeral Home has been serving Allen Park, Taylor and Dearborn area families for years. We are honored to be a part of the rich history of this community and plan to be a part of it for many years to come.

In the spring of 1949 the Voran brothers began construction on the first of what would eventually grow to three funeral homes, serving the Detroit community. Denny, Fred and Nick Voran were born in Melvindale, Michigan to Romanian parents Sherman and Eleana Vorobchevici. They would work with family (their siblings George and Elizabeth), neighbors and friends to complete their vision over the following two years. The Allen Park Chapel was completed in the Spring of 1951, followed by Dearborn in 1960 and finally Taylor in 1966.

With dedication to their families and visitors, the Voran reputation began to grow through the community and Voran Funeral Home, Inc. quickly became known as an avid supporter of local schools, churches and organizations.

For forty-five years Denny and Fred comforted and supported the families and friends who came through their doors. In April of 1996 Denny passed away at age 72, leaving Fred to continue their legacy.

Today the funeral homes continue to be owned and operated by Fred and Barb Voran along with children Eleana, Fred Jr. and most recently Renee.

They continue to adhere to the principles and values which have made their business so successful throughout the years. With a dedicated and professional staff they look forward to helping and serving their community in their time of need.

This video is from the addition to the Allen Park Chapel in the mid 1950's. The expansion took place a few years after the opening because the business began to grow. Denny and Fred Voran, along with neighbors and friends, took part in the construction and can be seen in the video.
