Ortonville — Roy Langolf, owner of the Village Funeral Home and Cremation Services, has been elected as President of the Michigan Funeral Directors Association.
“I’m honored to take the reins in leading an organization that has done so much good work advocating for funeral directors and the families they serve,” said Langolf. “The MFDA serves to support and empower funeral directors as they work to provide families with the very best service, comfort and support they need through some of life’s most trying and difficult moments.”
The MFDA represents around 1,200 funeral directors, serving 500 funeral homes state wide, and over two-thirds of all mortuary science licensees in Michigan. It is the oldest organization of funeral professionals in the nation.
“I can’t think of a more worthwhile endeavor, and I couldn’t be more excited to continue that legacy and build upon this association’s great work,” he said.
Langolf had owned and operated the Village Funeral Home and Cremation Services, 135 South St., Ortonville, since 2008. It was formerly the Shermal-Wilk Funeral Home, and was renamed in 2016.
Langolf is also a member of the Ortonville Lions Club, is on the Great Lakes National Cemetery AdvisoryBoard and is on the board of directors for On A Dragonfly’s Wings, a support group for survivors of suicide.
