Design Memorial Stone

“A Monument is a true reflection of a life well lived.”

In 1977, Butch Kruger started Design Memorial Stone in Maumee, Ohio on Sophia St. off the Anthony Wayne Trail. For almost 50 years, Design Memorial has served the people of Maumee, helping them create beautiful Granite Memorials that have stood the test of time. Now serving not only Maumee, but all of Northwest Ohio and Southern Michigan, our goal is to continue providing the best quality and service we can to every person that comes through our doors.

To that end, we’ve partnered with other local monument companies in Maumee Valley Memorials, Toledo Monument, and Defiance Memorials. Together, leaning on the experience of Five Generations of knowledge, we want to help ease the difficult decisions that go into memorial design. Our qualified memorialists will help educate you on every aspect of memorial design, from where the granite comes from, to how it will be engraved, in order to help ease the difficult decisions that come with memorial design. We’re more than happy, and capable, to answer all questions you have. We may have moved locations, but our dedication to the families and communities we serve hasn’t changed.
