Kettering Chapel

Our beautiful Kettering Chapel offers comfortable facilities, a caring and compassionate staff and attractive surroundings.

Opened in 1996, it was the first Newcomer funeral home to serve the families in and around Dayton. The facility includes a spacious chapel for funeral and memorial ceremonies, a variety of tastefully appointed rooms for family and visitors to gather, and a large, well-lit parking area with convenient access to Interstate 75 and Highway 741.

Our staff is dedicated to helping families create beautiful tributes to their loved ones. As Nina C. recently wrote to us, “I was very satisfied with the service and staff. This was my first experience with Newcomer and it was very impressive. Our director’s knowledge was remarkable when it came to funerals and cremation. She was there for us as if it was her family. Thank you.”

Funeral Director in Charge
James Godsey

Funeral Director in Charge James Godsey was born and raised in Dayton/Riverside, OH. He and his wife Bethany have a son, Zack, daughter, Kayla and a four-legged best friend, Remy. Together they enjoy hanging out with family and friends and attending festivals and concerts.

James became interested in the funeral profession in high school when his grandfather passed away. It took a long journey to get where he is today but he has such a passion to help others during difficult and trying times that he can’t think of doing anything else.
