I am beyond grateful for the service we received. I never planned a funeral and during such a difficult time of sadness it could be very overwhelming. From the initial phone call, Jose was straight forward, kind, and understanding. I appreciate all that he did to keep me informed along the way. I communicated with him mostly with calls and texts. He was always very prompt and answered all my questions. Thank you for the support and for caring so much of our loved one. I will always be thankful for the support we received in such a hard time. Jason was also so amazing, thank you thank you for taking care of our angel.

This is truly a family owned business. They took good care of us with my moms viewing and funeral arrangements. If you want transparency and support then this is the place. Thank you 🙏🏻

I thank God for directing me to this funeral home. I live in Southern California and not being able to make arrangements for my cousin in person was going to be difficult. Jose Ayala guided me through the process with ease and patience. I appreciate the time and all the phone calls to keep me informed step by step. I thank and appreciate Jose.
Be Blessed

My family chose this place for my nephews funeral because the owner Jose, his son and his wife are good people and very accommodating. He didn’t nickel and dime us and he went the extra mile to make sure we had what we needed throughout the 2 days we were there. He thought of everything and all the little details are what made the difference such as the obituary on his website, folders to pass out during the service, live video for family and friends to be able to watch the service who couldn’t be there. We felt at home there my nephew would have loved it there it was so intimate but also open with all the different rooms the family was able to use. Thank you to Jose and his family for welcoming our family and making our first funeral experience as good as it could have gone. I highly recommend this place for any family who are in need of services.

Can’t say it enough how thankful I am for my friends and family that came through. We felt the love and sincerity of every one. We can’t express how blessed and grateful we are. God bless everyone and the Jose Ayala for the amazing services they provided us. This week was difficult but they made us feel like family. The spiritual Native American Service gave us comfort and the healing we needed to close the services last night. I still feel at peace. Amazing can’t say enough about the service. The funeral home gave us what we wanted and needed and that was time. Time to grieve and spend with our beloved Sal “Bebe” 5/14/96-08/01/19🐻🐻🐻

I just wanted to take this time out to personally thank Stockton Funeral Home for providing my family and I with excellent service. During our time of sorrow, Jose and his wife have been nothing but helpful and empathetic. NO OTHER funeral home I have experienced has EVER been as friendly and outgoing as Stockton Funeral Home. While making arrangements for my Father’s services, Jose checked in with me to make sure everything was ok before he made any decisions on his own. He made us feel as if we mattered and this is NOT just a business for him. As much as losing a loved one hurts, the reality is you will find yourself searching for help with services and arrangements. No one wants to go through this experience. I sure wasn’t ready for this nor did I know anything about having to bury someone. But I am here to tell you if you or someone you know needs services, please remember this post and contact Jose Ayala at the Stockton Funeral Home. It is family owned and his wife is super awesome as well. They have turned out to be more like family. Who would have ever thought I would say… I absolutely love this place. Thank you so much Renisha MoniQue for referring me to him. You have no idea how grateful I am. Oh and a shout out to Jermaine who works for him as well. He hooked my dad up in his home going suit and my daddy looked fly and at peace. You guys are really amazing. Thank you so very much. From the bottom of our hearts.

José and his staff at Stockton Funeral Services, completely blew me away with their attention, empathy, and service. Since my cousin Hugo’s passing, they were extremely helpful and it immediately felt like they were part of the family. They were so understanding and so accommodating beyond belief. I would recommend this place 100% to anyone needing the best funeral service around. I was going to be going back to San Diego the day of the viewing and wasn’t going to be able to see him one last time, yet Jose permitted me, along with his mother and sister to come the day before. This is something I will forever be grateful for. Thank you for providing the entire group of family/friends so much comfort and understanding during our grieving.

We choose Stockton Funeral Home to ship my Dad back to Mexico, After one other place told us it will take about 7-10 business days, we wanted my dad home right away we were refereed to Jose with valley & Stockton Funeral Home, we explained to Jose the Urgency we had to get my dad home and he assured us that he will be home in two days, my family and i was shocked, we trusted him and his staff that they knew what they were doing, my dad was picked up one night Thursday night and Saturday afternoon he was already in Mexico. I will refer Jose Ayala to any family that needs funeral help. Thank You Mr. Ayala and staff,
