Owner, Licensed Funeral Director & Certified Celebrant
Brian was born and raised in Pottsville. In 1993, as a student at Pottsville Area High School, Leffler began working, part time, at Schlitzer Allen Pugh Funeral Home. Finding this profession very fulfilling, he continued his education at Northampton Community College, where he obtained an associate’s degree in Applied Science and Certificate of Mortuary Education. He then served his internship with Heffner Family Service, who was at that time, owner of Schlitzer Allen Pugh Funeral Home. In 1996 he became a licensed funeral director, working exclusively at this Pottsville Funeral Home. Then in January 2002 he took the next step in his career, proudly accepting the position of general manager at this same facility where he began part time employment only nine years earlier. On August 16, 2013 Mr. Leffler completed the purchase of Schlitzer Allen Pugh and three other funeral homes in Pennsylvania and one in New York.
Brian is the son of Agnes Leffler of Pottsville and the late Edward Leffler. He has one brother, Edward, who with his wife, Joanne, also resides in town. Brian married a hometown girl, Victoria (Pellish) Leffler, daughter of Charles and Theresa (Austerberry) Pellish, of Pottsville. They have been blessed with two children, Gage and Sloane. Brian and his entire family would like to say how proud they are to be able to continue the legacy for providing the highest quality funeral and cremation services to his hometown and surrounding communities.
