Our Story And Team
Lifelong friends Drew and Joaquin started Memories in Stone 3 years ago with the idea of producing the highest quality monuments in the Central Valley. For Joaquin, he was able to take his decade of working in photography and headstone/monument construction, and begin creating works of art unhindered by working for employers who limit the time he could put into each individual piece. For our laser-etched granite gravestones and other memorial images, his years of photo restoration and retouching knowledge allow him to provide unprecedented expert service in picture selection and enhancement. Drew, a veteran fighter pilot and officer with the US Air Force, is now able to apply its principles of integrity, excellence, and service, as well as managment expertise, to the Memories in Stone team. Their wives Mai See and Ana also help with the day to day operations, making this a true family run company that understands the needs of families going through what is inevitably a difficult time.
