We are proud of our people, facilities, reputation, flexibility, creativity and value. Brookings-Smith is a family owned-and operated funeral home that provides the greater Bangor area with complete mortuary services. Local facilities in Bangor, Brewer, and Orono are maintained for the convenience of the people in these communities.
Depending on the size of your family and circle of friends, someone close may be expected to die every ten years or so. This infrequency leaves most people unprepared for the myriad of details which must be attended to when this eventually occurs.
Fortunately, there is an immediate resource available to assist you in this time of need. It is the Brookings- Smith Life Tribute Center whose people are confronted with the event of death on a continuing basis, and are prepared to guide our clients through the intricate details of preparation.

Memorial Day. For some, it marks the start of the summer vacation season. For others, it's a restful long weekend. And for all, it's a time to remember the men and women who have fought for our freedom in our wonderful country. Originally called, Decoration Day, the holiday began after the Civil War to mark the graves of the fallen soldiers. Now we lower our proud flag to half-mast to honor those who have given the greatest sacrifice.
During this time of family and reflection, pause to remember those who have given all. Pause to remember what they have fought for. Pause to remember those that are no longer with us. Happy Memorial Day from all of us.
