About Us

Thompson Funeral Chapel is a full-service concierge for funeral arrangements in Goodyear, Avondale, Litchfield Park, Buckeye, Tolleson, Waddell, Glendale, Surprise and all of Maricopa County. Our team handles every detail so your family doesn’t have to worry about a thing. From professional care of the your loved one, to filling out all necessary paperwork, to planning a funeral or memorial service, to booking hotels and transportation for visiting guests, we take care of everything from A to Z.

Our funeral home was founded in 1957 by Don Cannon under the name Cannon Funeral Home. In 1964, Cannon moved it from Downtown Avondale to its current convenient location on Litchfield Road in Goodyear. After changing hands from family to family through the years, Sean and Cynthia Thompson purchased the business in 2005 and changed the name to Thompson Funeral Chapel.

Sean and Cynthia have spent over 25 years in the funeral business, so when they took ownership of the chapel, they had a new vision in mind. Since then, they have completed major upgrades to the facility and grounds, and built a new team with even higher standards of service.

When you work with Thompson Funeral Chapel, you will have at least two dedicated team members helping you so there is always someone available to lend a hand, answer questions, and serve your family. Our staff also focuses on making sure our facility, team, and arrangements are a positive reflection on you and your loved ones at all times.

Our Mission, Goal, and Philosophy

Our mission is to provide the Southwest Valley with funeral, memorial, and cremation services beyond what is expected and to create an atmosphere of peace at a time when it is needed the most.

Our philosophy will be to approach this as a ministry and treat our customers as such but also understand that we operate a business. We will strive to keep customers first; business decisions second.

Our goal is to become the most highly recognized funeral chapel in the Southwest Valley and then in the State of Arizona.
