I would just like to take this time to thank all of you for your comments. My wife, father, mother, brothers and staff take them very seriously. Whether good or bad we place them all on our bulletin board in the business office and use them for encouragement and training. We believe that any family that comes to us is a gift from God and should be treated as such. If you should ever have any questions or concerns please call My father or myself at 773-846-6567. We would love to hear from you. By the grace of God we have been in business now for over 78 years with the business being founded by my grandfather Rev. A.R.Leak. My father is now the owner. With many family owned funeral homes being sold to large national and international corporations, it is my intention to continue the great legacy that God allowed my grandfather to begin. Once again my family and I thank you.Spencer Leak, Jr.Vice PresidentLeak And Sons Funeral Home
Praise the Lord!

I went to Leak and Sons today for the burial of my friend. I told the staff that I was there for the procession. The driver was late, so I waited in the waiting room, and after a while, I excused myself to use the restroom. While I was there, the procession left without me. There were only 3 of us going to the cemetery, so this couldn't have been an oversight + they just decided to leave without me. I tried to catch the porcession, but couldn't. When I called back and asked them if they could give me directions and wait for me, they gave me directions and went straight to the cemetery. When I arrived, they had already put my friend in the ground and left. Of the 6 people on staff that I spoke with as I tried to find out what was going on, not one even offered an apology. I'm a minister, and I conduct funerals myself and work with various funeral homes from time to time. I've never seen a funeral home with such callous disregard for the deceased and their loved ones.

PLEASE NOTE:SETH FISHER REVIEW WAS BASED ON A TIME WHEN SEVERAL OTHER FAMILIES WERE ALSO WAITING TO GO TO ANOTHER CEMETERY, WE WERE WAITING FOR HIM, DIIDNT KNOW WHERE HE HAD GONE.. THE DRIVERS HAD A SCHEDULE TO KEEP AND COULD NOT HOLD UP TIME WAITING FOR HIM. WE DID WAIT A FEW MINUTES AND HAD TO LEAVE AFTER THAT. MY NIECE AND I WERE THE OTHER TWO PEOPLE. SETH'S FRIEND WAS AT LEAK FUNERAL HOME BECAUSE OF MY REQUEST. HE DID NOT HAVE ANY RELATIVES LIVING AND HE ASKED ME TO HELP HIM BEFORE HE DIED. SO THAT WAS A BAD TIME GETTING THINGS TOGETHER FOR SETH'S FRIEND. LEAK FUNERAL HOME WENT THROUGH A LOT OF CHANGES FOR THIS BURIAL ANYWAY. MY FRIEND SPENCER LEAK AND LEAK FUNERAL HOME HAVE HELPED ME MY FAMILY AND MANY MANY FRIENDS AND HELPED US WITH SETH'S FRIEND ALSO WHO HAD VERY LIMITED RESOURCES.HE WAS ALSO A VETERAN. THE VETERANS PAID FOR BURIAL. HE WAS BURIED WITH DIGNITY. I WAS GIVEN HIS FLAGLEAK FUNERAL HOMS HAS A REPUTATION OF HELPING PEOPLE WITH LIMITED RESOURCES.
Time to make a change

My mother past in March 2008. At my mothers requestl, funeral services were "entrusted" to Leak and Sons Funeral Home. In the early '70's my mother chose Leak as her funeral directors to handle her brothers home-going services and she subsequently used The Leak Family to handle over 20 services since then, including her own.I was not at all satified with the services rendered by Leak and Sons Funeral Services. The services for my mother included 2 "family cars", and it seemed that they sent the oldest , most raggedest cars they had in their fleet. The interior of the car was filthy, the leather seats were torn and badly battered, and the outside was not clean. I rode to the church in one of the "family cars" and this was a Caddillac Limo, but it rode worst than a school bus; It seemed to me that the shock absorbers on this car were past due for replacement, nadf they were using this "limo 'til it was no longer usable. The gentleman/staff driving the " Family car " was very attentive a

Scheduled a time to make arrangements they put us in a waiting room with many others families to wait in 30 minutes they asked us who we where there to arrange for (3rd Time) they then put us in an office to wait again. they rushed the arrangements and sent us on our way . this Business has grown too big for their own good they lost the compassion a grieing family is in need of in there time of need
GO TO ANOTHER FUNERAL SERVICE PROVIDER

There is another site where you can leave reviews and there are 4 reviews on it for Leak & Sons and they are all one star reviews. One of the reviews is from a Minister with vast experience in handling funerals. The Minister's review outlines how disorganized, rude, late and uncaring they were in addition to their old ratty cars they use. You are entitled to a proper hearse for your service. If you are not satisfied with certain aspects do not pay for those items. Deduct them and file a complaint with the Funeral Board. Then make sure you tell all your friends, neighbors and relatives to avoid Leaks. There so many good funeral homes out there that you need not settle for this kind of shoddy treatment. You are paying a high price for a professional service. The mark ups and profits are great and you deserve the very best. Go somewhere else. If you are not satisfied after you have made the arrangements then have your loved one removed from Leaks. They cannot hold the body.

...Continued from "Never Would have made it/Time to make a change.......Beforde the services the Leak and Sons called us to view the remains of my mother to make approvals. When we went to the funeral-home to view the remains we were in a long room with about 13 familys and the remains of their loved ones there for visitation and approval as we were. I am telling you that this was the most non-private moment I have ever had in a time of bereavement; This seemed to me to be very non-personal approach for any funeral director to have in ones time of morning.Forgive me mother, but Leak and Sons will not be "entrusted" to handle any more funerals for "this" family.
