Charles F. Snyder Funeral Homes Now Offer an Alternative Choice: The Harley Hearse

Sep 26, 2017 11:41PM

Charles F. Snyder Funeral Homes & Crematory is now offering a unique alternative to those eager to have one last ride or in some cases, the ride they have always wanted to take. The funeral home realized there was a demand for the Harley hearse due to the number of requests from motorcycle lovers and those who admire them, alike.

In August, Charles F. Snyder Funeral Homes released the first glimpse of the 100th Anniversary Harley Davidson Hearse on Facebook, which went viral. The hearse was custom built by Al Skinner, of Wrightsville. Skinner is a retired Harley enthusiast who was eager to partner with the funeral home. He was a seasoned Harley hearse funeral procession escort, who offered his services for various funeral homes in the tri-state area. Charles F. Snyder just happened to be his last customer before retirement in 2009. “When I called Al to discuss the idea of rebuilding a Harley Hearse, he jumped at the opportunity and was eager to help create that one last ride again,” shares Chad Snyder.

The hearse is the only Harley Davidson hearse in the area, exclusively offered by Charles F. Snyder Funeral Homes as an alternative to their Cadillac traditional funeral hearse. Preplanning options are available. In addition, Charles F. Snyder will be renting the hearse for special events as well as to other funeral homes in the area.
