Brad Rex, Chief Executive Officer, Foundation Partners, announced, "I am thrilled to share the news that Betz, Rossi, Bellinger & Stewart Family Funeral Homes has joined our family of firms." The transaction was completed December 23, 2013.

BRBS provided services for almost six hundred families last year with excellence.
Betz, Rossi, Bellinger & Stewart is excited that this affiliation will ensure the quality of service they are known for will continue well into the future. "The alignment of cultures was the driving force for the merger," said Jack Betz. Foundation Partners' mission 'To Capture, Acknowledge, and Share Life's Purpose' aligns perfectly with the Betz, Rossi, Bellinger & Stewart philosophy of 'Serving Families As If They Were Our Own.'
"We're very excited about the opportunity to team-up with a growing organization that shares our passion for service, that has ideas and resources that will add value to the services we offer our families and that will provide the resources to remain strong in a changing industry and world," stated Vince Rossi.
John Stewart added, "We believe we have found the ideal partner that recognizes the unique character and values BRBS brings to our communities. While we have been leaders in bringing new ideas to our families, Foundation Partners will provide additional resources and opportunities that will strengthen our team and the services we provide."
David Bellinger stated that "This is a great opportunity for our staff and the families we serve to experience the added value that Foundation Partners brings to the excellent service we currently provide."
"In keeping with our growth strategies, this is an exciting moment for us all. BRBS is a perfect fit, and we intend to bring our vision, innovation and resources to help Vince, Jack, John, and their team continue to provide the highest possible level of service in their communities, Rex further added.
