It all began in 1965 with a spark of a new idea from Costas Rombocos, a courageous immigrant from Athens, Greece, who aspired to pursue excellence and innovation in the death care industry. Costas has sought innovation without sacrificing his reverent respect for our heritage, legacy, and the traditions of the past. With his great values and motivation he has created the finest Colorado Springs funeral home available today.
Costas’ oldest son, Demetri Rombocos, joined his father at the Shrine of Remembrance in November of 1993 following his graduation from Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois. He has served as the President of the Shrine of Remembrance for many years.
Dino Rombocos, Costas’ younger son began his employment at the Shrine of Remembrance following his graduation from Cheyenne Mountain High School in 1992.
Together, both Dino and Demetri have demonstrated their commitment and love for the industry for over 25 years to follow in their father’s footsteps and continue to uphold the mission and excellence of the Shrine of Remembrance well into the 21st Century. The Shrine of Remembrance looks forward to continuing to be the best value Colorado Springs funeral home for many years to come.
