Welcome! My name is Brian Schlosser, and my wife, Jenn and I are the proud owners and operators of Schlosser Funeral Home & Cremation Services.
I was raised just outside Wapakoneta, where I grew up with my parents and twin sister. She and I graduated from Wapakoneta Senior High in 1997. Following high school I attended Wright State University-Lake Campus in Celina completing the necessary requirements to attend mortuary school. I then transferred to Cincinnati College of Mortuary Science in spring of 2000. While attending college there, I lived in Newport, Kentucky and worked for Muehlenkamp-Erschell Funeral Homes.
After receiving my Bachelor of Mortuary Science degree in the summer of 2001, I started my career as a licensed funeral director and embalmer back home in Wapakoneta. In September of 2001, I joined the St. Johns Volunteer Fire & Rescue Department where I currently serve as Fire Chief volunteering my time as a Level-1 Firefighter and E.M.T.
