Famous Endings Museum is considered to be one of the largest known collections of its kind – with over 1,500 pieces of memorabilia on display! This collection began in 1996, when John Herzig of Toland-Herzig Funeral Homes was indulging in his autograph collection hobby. In addition to an autographed photo of legendary boxer Joe “the Brown Bomber” Louis, the package he received included a program from the fighter’s 1981 funeral ceremony. That event sparked John’s interest in famous funerals and so began his collection.
Some highlights of his collection includes Abraham Lincoln, Princess Diana, Michael Jackson, Phil Hartman, Dave Thomas, Pat Tillman, Vince Lombardi and more.
