Where We Started
10 February 1960
The origins of Compassive date back to August 8, 1907. Founded by Charles W. Iles, Ira Moller and Ardis Peterson, Compassive opened its doors at 575 S Kenwood Ave 3 in Chicago, IL. The funeral home continued under that management until 1979 when Mr. Iles became the sole owner.
Since the 1980s, our network of funeral homes has been extensively growing. In 1981, Charles W. Iles together with LeRoy Dunn established the funeral home at the old residence at 805 Pleasant Street in Los Angeles, CA.
Later, Mr. Dunn put into realization a dream which had become his life ambition – developing the most modern funeral network in the country and offering high-quality funeral services.
