About the Marcy Family

The Marcy Family has lived in the Atlanta area for over thirty (30) years. An Atlanta native, Gina grew up in Cobb County, attended North Cobb High School, and graduated from Kennesaw State University. Kevin moved to Georgia in 1986 after attending Ohio University. Once in Atlanta, he graduated from Gupton Jones College of Funeral Service.

Kevin became a licensed funeral director in 1996, continuing the Marcy legacy for a fifth generation. His sister, Kori Marcy Campbell, joined their father in 2001 in Ohio, and Kevin and his wife, Gina, founded Georgia Funeral Care & Cremation Services in Acworth in 2012.

Kevin and Gina have two married sons – Wade (Amanda) and Reed (Fabiola), and two grandsons, Mason and Jaxon.

Long History of Family Service

The Marcy Family has a long history of serving families during their time of loss. Prior to starting Georgia Funeral Care & Cremation Services, Kevin and Gina also founded Dream Land Pet Memorial Center in 2006. As animal lovers themselves, it was a true heartfelt calling to help others deal with losing their furry family members.

The first full service pet funeral home in Georgia, Dream Land is still in business and located next door to the Georgia Funeral Care chapel in Acworth, Georgia.

Generations of Marcy's

In 1868, soon after the Civil War, Willard Marcy, Kevin’s great-great grandfather, began serving the funeral needs of Conneaut, Ohio residents in a former blacksmith shop in East Conneaut. Willard’s son, Charles, took over in 1896 and eventually settled in the present location at the corner of Liberty and Harbor Streets in 1918.

Charles was joined by his sons, Hugh in 1911, and then Robert C. in 1933. In 1960, Robert B. (Kevin’s father) joined his own father, Robert C., to carry on the family tradition for a fourth generation.

Marcy's Love the Military

At Georgia Funeral Care & Cremation Services, Marcy means total commitment, honor and respect for the United States military, veterans and anyone who has served our country well. We take this very seriously because we too have lost loved ones from the Marcy family who were very beloved veterans. The Marcy's have engrained this into our funeral home DNA and are humbled and honored to offer that same level of compassion, respect and admiration for the service and sacrifices made by your loved ones too.

Dedication and Commitment to Serve

Georgia Funeral Care & Cremation Services is locally owned and operated by Kevin and Gina Marcy. A fifth generation funeral professional, Kevin has been working in funeral service most of his life.

The Marcy’s believe that a meaningful and dignified funeral or cremation should not cost tens of thousands of dollars, nor should it be the source of additional undue stress during an already difficult time. Kevin and Gina recognized the need for a more affordable alternative to the high priced services offered by most Georgia funeral homes, so in 2012 they founded Georgia Funeral Care & Cremation Services, LLC.
