Colin Zeman

Colin Zeman

Funeral Director - Embalmer - Insurance Provider - Owner

Colin Zeman spent his childhood in Duluth, Minnesota. His grandfather Casimir Michaloski owned and operated Koop Funeral Home in Crosby, Minnesota. His Aunt and her husband Nick now run the business. It was by their example of service to others that Colin decided to attend Mortuary Science School at the University of Minnesota, graduating in the spring of 2005.

I am a Licensed Funeral Director and Mortician in both Montana and Minnesota and am also a prearrangement specialist and licensed life insurance agent in both Montana and Minnesota; which allows him to protect client’s assets while ensuring Medicaid eligibility.

We own our own crematory so loved one never leaves our care. Colin is also the Crematory Operator charged with ensuring dignified service and a pristine facility.

Colin has worked in funeral service since his graduation from college. My wife and I bought the funeral home in Livingston, MT and found that selling was not for us. We developed that business into a very family friendly and affordable service, which we are so very proud of. Enjoying that strategy Colin opened Simple Cremation Montana to fill the gap of great service at a very fair cost throughout Montana. Our first location in Helena as blossomed into a wonderful business and we look forward to expanding our locations.

I am married to the best partner in life I could have asked for Hailey and we have one son, Emmett.

We are truly grateful for the support of our neighbors and friends.
