Porter Loring Mortuaries is San Antonio’s oldest family - owned funeral home still operating under the same family management.
Simply put, this concept of “family” guides us in every part of our operation. We’re currently in our fourth generation of active management by the Porter Loring family. We make it our policy to treat our staff the same way we would other members of our family. But most important is the impact this attitude has on our relationship with you – and with all the families who turn to us in time of need.
Read our founding philosophy and you’ll understand that ever since the company started in 1918, we envisioned ourselves as different – warmer, more personal – than other funeral firms of the day. It was precisely what motivated Porter Loring, Sr. to enter this profession.
Nearly a century later, all of us at Porter Loring Mortuaries continue to live by this vision. To express respect for each other and for the families we serve. To provide services that respond to changes in social custom and personal need. And to look for new ways to make a person’s last rites more comforting and more meaningful to family and friends.
