Our story begins over a century ago in 1909. Levi Goguen, then 30 years old, started a new company called Goguen Monuments. Although it began in a humble chicken coop, with dedication Levi was later able to expand into a small workshop.
Like many people of the time, Levi battled all his life with illiteracy. There are even a few occasions were he engraved “PIR” instead of “RIP”.
He was a very hardworking man that believed in providing an essential need to his community. An empathetic service coupled with dignity and respect at an affordable cost, a vision that we maintain in the company to this day.
He lived a good and meaningful life, built a successful company that would ensure his legacy, and often shared his wealth with his friends and family.
An Entrepreneur, father and philanthropist, Levi C. Goguen passed in 1964.
