About Nova

There is no question that a funeral director is in the business to make money. As sinful as this sounds, this is how we support our families and support a business that will be there to meet your needs.

For most of us, it is a chosen profession. For myself, it is a life-long commitment to providing a caring family business.  Funeral directors have their own parents, spouse and children die just like everyone else. The pain we feel and tears we shed are genuine. Perhaps this brings us closer to your feelings.

I have had so many people ask me, “How can you stand being around all that grief?” The truth is, it is very rewarding assisting a family who may not know where to turn. I always appreciate the genuine thanks received.

I’m certainly not the only reputable funeral director out there.

 I do believe that I provide a needed economical service to our community.   You, as a consumer, need only check us out, but need to feel at ease using our local family service.

Thank you for considering NOVA Cremation Service of Fresno to act as your Funeral Director at this time of need.  Should you need additional information, please do not hesitate to call.

Steven Smith ~ Funeral Director


On January 16, 2010, the owner of NOVA CREMATION SERVICE,  David Loper, passed away and left this Earth to start his adventurous journey to be reunited with his family and the numerous friends he had made throughout his lifetime.

David's legacy, NOVA CREMATION SERVICE, continues to carry on with his same commitments in serving the families with respect and caring in a way that we ourselves would like to be treated. 

The legacy continues with his wife, Colleen, son Jonathan and longtime friend, Steven Smith who serves as the managing Funeral Director of NOVA CREMATION SERVICE
