Our History

Blaze Titus has been a Mortician for almost 30 years.  After serving the Tri-Cities community for four years with another funeral home, Blaze and his wife, Adrianna, founded Hillcrest Memorial Center in 2005.  Their goal was to provide families with affordable funeral options in a comfortable setting.  In 2006 they added Bruce Lee Funeral Home in Pasco. With these two Memorial Centers, and an incredible staff, they are achieving their goal.
