Neptune was amazing from setting up the plan to the passing of my mother and all the assistance with cremation process. Taylor is a saint handling all of our product requests and the dozens of jewelry pieces he and his team had to handle. Everyone we encountered was amazing, starting with the gentlemen who came over quickly after my mom’s passing.

Super efficient, sensitive, and low-key. My mom prearranged her cremation and Taylor from Neptune was prompt in contacting us and arranging everything we needed to have done. He went the extra mile, even bringing everything needed to our home. We are very impressed and satisfied.

I was so impressed and comforted by the extraordinary kindness and sensitivity throughout the entire process with Neptune Society. My sister and I attended an information luncheon to hear about the various plans. We never felt pressured and all of our questions were answered. When my sister passed on, the men who came to pick up her body at my home were gentle and compassionate. I felt that the whole process of caring for her body was done in a profoundly respectful and gentle way. From that point forward, my communication with Mr. Moody was always pleasant and helpful. Thank you Neptune Society and a special thank you to John Moody!

Neptune Society took all my fear and worry away. I was able to grieve in peace without worrying about any of the procedures that we planned previous to my husbands departure. I have encouraged many of my friends and family members to reach out to Neptune Society

My father had the foresight to purchase his plan long in advance and when he passed I didn’t know how it would work. Taylor surpassed my expectations. He was so helpful and Neptune Society took care of everything. The only thing that went smoothly after he passed was this. I highly recommend it. We have plans to purchase something in the future for my mother in law. Total peace of mind.

My Mother pre-arranged her cremation 6 years ago at a Neptune Society facility in southern California and then moved to Denver. When she passed away the medical staff at her assisted living facility called the nearest Neptune in Arvada. It was tall taken care of. When my husband suddenly and unexpectedly passed away, I called the Arvada site and one of there staff met me at the hospital here and I paid for their services just 4 hours before he died. I was so impressed with their professionalism, their caring in my devastation that 6 months later I made the decision, as my Mother did, and pre-paid for my own cremation. I can’t say enough good things about this organization.

With so many things that need to be taken care of at a time like this, the Neptune Society was right there to make sure that everything necessary for cremation was handled properly and efficiently in a compassionate and caring manner.

When you lose a loved one, the accompanying responsibilities to arrange for the gathering of their body, preparations for cremation, and documents to be filled out can be overwhelming at a time when one is already grief-stricken. My father paid for a Neptune Society cremation service many years ago. His advance preparation for his death, combined with the care and guidance received from Todd Putnam and his colleagues at Neptune Society, Arvada really helped me through what is a difficult time. From the start, Todd walked me through the process and was extra caring when I asked that my last letter to my father be with him at the time of cremation. I was touched that he understood it was the only part of me that could be with my dad when he died in the hospital from Covid19. So, he made sure the letter was there when he picked up my dad and assured me it stayed with him when cremated. Given my father was a veteran, Todd also helped me with the burial flag and death certificates. I am very grateful my father had the foresight to plan ahead by purchasing a Neptune Society cremation/burial service plan. I am also very grateful for Todd Putnam and his colleagues who have a heart and spirit for helping people tend to the last thing they could do for their loved one(s). Not everyone can do what they do with caring, compassion, nurturing, and patience. Again, I am very grateful to Todd and Neptune Society. The experience has me considering purchasing a plan for my husband, myself, and my mother. I have also told our children to consider this service.

I can’t believe it’s taken me a year to leave a review. Last year my father died unexpectedly while traveling overseas. It was an incredibly stressful and heartbreaking situation. Neptune handled things very well. Once my mom and I returned, Neptune put our minds at ease and took care of all arrangements. Alejandro was professional yet compassionate. I would trust this company with the afterlife care of all my loved ones.

The experience from beginning to end was excellent. Mark ** was very professional. There was no hard sale just info. When I called back to arrange to have him return to do the sale he was very efficient. I have received all the materials and am overall very happy with how things went. I have recommended several friends.

My wife Cathy, and I have been Neptune members for many years. We joined because we liked their offer of service and we both felt cremation was easy and beneficial for each other and our families. Cathy passed away in Colorado Springs at 0330 on 19 February in our home. We planned her passing to be at home when she entered hospice care. The hospice nurse contacted Neptune that morning. I had requested they not pick Cathy up until after 0800. They did arrive between 0815 and 0830. Todd ** contacted me concerning Cathy’s death. He was very compassionate and caring. He answered all my questions and helped with a viewing on Friday, 21 February for my son and his family.

Peace of mind is having your final act laid out and paid for. With professional and personal assistance from Mark S. Lane, we did do exactly that. Mark thoroughly took us through the process and asked us pertinent questions that made us stop and think of exactly what it was we wanted to be done. My parents selected Neptune Society and their day was indeed a perfect day of celebration of their life. The way Mark went about this process made it most enjoyable and dare I say fun. So, if you are thinking about what it is you want to do to make it easier for the loved ones you will leave behind and at the same time give you peace of mind, Call and ask for Mark Lane you’ll be glad you did.

My mother passed away Christmas Eve, and I contacted Todd at Neptune the day after Christmas. He was so supportive in meeting with us and getting arrangements done in a timely manner even with the holidays and closures related to them. He was so pleasant to talk to, and any questions I had were answered right away. I appreciated his gentleness during a time filled with such emotion. Also thankful my mom took the time to pre-arrange with Neptune-what a gift.

My Mother made pre-arrangements with Neptune Society and I couldn’t have been more pleased. Alejandro was compassionate, caring and completely professional and supportive during this difficult and sensitive time. He guided myself and my family in the steps needed in honoring my mother and I couldn’t be more pleased. I am truly thankful he was there to take the lead and guide us gently to the next steps. Thank you, Alejandro, for making a difficult time so much easier. I would highly recommend Neptune and Alejandro to anyone facing this challenge.

From the moment that the gentlemen came to pick up and transfer my mother to the facility to the return of her remains everything was wonderfully professional. The gentlemen that picked my mother up from our homemade the bed and left 2 roses on the pillow in her honor. A real class act all the way around. We were provided with a variety of options to honor our loved one with no pressure at all. As a retired professional chaplain, I cannot say enough wonderful things about their service.

The Neptune Society has been absolutely wonderful. They were wonderful when my Father passed and they were just as wonderful when my Mother passed. My Father and Mother had a prearranged package which was helpful, however, the Neptune Society was there when it was time. In addition to taking care of everything, they were efficient, caring and even were concerned about how I was doing. They took the stress away so I could grieve without having to make decisions at a difficult time. I am so impressed with the services that I am going to get a prearranged package so my family does not have the burden of making arrangements when it is my time.

My son suddenly passed away on May 15, 2019, and amidst the shock of the unexpected loss, we still had to plan a burial or cremation. Because my sons passing was so unexpected we had to try and remember what his wishes were in the event he should pass away. He did tell us he wanted to be cremated and so that’s what we set out to do. Olinger was the first one we contacted but an ensuing legal issue got in the way and Olinger wouldn’t budge, and a few others wouldn’t budge on this tiny legal matter that wasn’t even a big deal. Now, it seemed like we were out of options and didn’t know what to do. So we called Tom Martino’s radio show and he suggested we get a hold of The Neptune Society. As it turns out The Neptune Society should have been the first number we called. The staff at the Arvada office were wonderful from beginning to the end. The receptionist Robin Leonard is friendly and very helpful. Office manager Alejandro Ruiz was kind and helped explain some of the procedures of the paperwork. The one person who was amazing through this horrendous ordeal was funeral arranger Todd Putnam who proved you can have compassion and understanding while conducting business. He even made sure to remind us to get some sleep, eat and take care of ourselves. Todd explained everything to us from the paperwork to the cremation, so we knew what to expect from point A to point Z. Something I must say Todd told us the viewing would be only for a limited time but it was much much longer which allowed all his friends time to say goodbye. Todd didn’t have to do that and that’s something that touched our hearts and we will never forget that huge gesture of kindness. One last thing that must be mentioned and that’s the hard work and dedication of Jessica McFerrin, James Jackson Matt Van Deventer who prepare the bodies for viewing and cremation. These are the people behind the scene who don’t get the praise or recognition they deserve.

The people at Neptune Society, Alejandro Ruiz in particular, were greatly helpful at a time when my family could most use it. I will happily recommend the services at Neptune Society for the unfortunate times that a family will inevitably have to face. Thanks!

My wife of nearly 64 years died at home on Mothers Day, May 12, 2019, with much of the family present. The Hospice Nurse called Neptune and two very friendly and efficient transport people arrived in reasonably short order to take my wife to the crematorium. I had made it clear I wished to visit my wife one more time before cremation, and Mr. James Ward of Neptune made the necessary arrangements. My wife was beautifully made up when I made my very private visit and, as was true throughout, I was treated with friendliness and compassion. After the ashes were received right on schedule, my 4 children, their spouses, 4 grandchildren, our pastor and myself proceeded to a previously chosen place high up in the mountains for a service of remembrance and the scattering of the ashes. From the first contracting with Neptune 13 years earlier until the service just mentioned, I could not have been more pleased with the treatment we/I received. I have told many of my friends about it and recommended they consider Neptune when they do their end of life planning.

We want to inform you of the excellent service our family received with the passing of our mother from you Neptune Representative, Alejandro Ruiz in your Arvada, Colorado office.
Our mother passed this past March 3, 2019. She had pre-paid for her cremation with Neptune which left us somewhat concerned how it would work out. Alejandro handled our concerns and questions, during what is, of course, a difficult time for our family, in a very caring and sensitive manner. He was kind and showed, what seemed to us, a genuine concern for our comfort. During our mother’s viewing, he was attentive that all went well for our entire family.
What struck our family was Alejandro’s overall sensitivity and concern for our well-being. His support for our family was greatly appreciated. Our mother made the right choice with Neptune.

My dad always likes to plan & be organized. Preparing for his & my moms passing was no exception. He was in hospice during his last days, and although we were prepared, it was still a difficult situation.
I called Neptune after he passed & can’t say enough about how supportive & kind they were during this time; something you really need during such an emotional time. They came to my parents home, where dad passed, and were kind enough to pull into their garage. This gave us the privacy that we needed from understandably curious neighbors. They also gave us each time to say goodbye. We didn’t feel rushed, and while we knew the next steps, they took the time to re-explain things in a calm & gentle tone.
Although my mom is still with us, I know when the time comes, they will be there when we need them. I appreciated their support & guidance and highly recommend them.

I believe no matter how hard you try to prepare for a death in your world you are never, truly prepared. Neptune Society did everything humanly possible to make my mother’s passing as painless as possible. It seemed like our world was spinning out of control at the time and Mr. Ruiz was incredibly patient, accommodating and professional at every turn. I would highly recommend Neptune Society for their TLC for those who are behind

My mother was very impressed with Neptune Society and with the services so I talked it over with my husband, and we decided to look into it. A woman came to our home and we liked her and the presentation. There was no pressure at all and it just seemed like a really good idea. We both got the travel insurance because we liked to travel and the fact that we wouldn’t have to ship a body back from wherever it was we were, I thought that was good and it seemed affordable. After my husband passed away and when I finally had to take care of his ashes and go through all the stuff that you have to go through, they made it very easy and simple. It was very positive under the circumstances.

I highly recommend that everyone considering cremation contact the Neptune Society. My husband and I purchased
Neptune arrangements over 12 years ago and they took care of everything in Denver, while I returned to Los Angeles.
The staff was kind and efficient and I received the cremains in a timely manner, along with the Death Certificates.
Thank you so much, James Jackson Ward and the rest of the staff. You made things smooth for me at a very difficult time.

The Neptune Society – Denver was the brightest spot in a very difficult time. The services they provided were a godsend and took so much stress off my shoulders. I knew my husband was in the best of hands and everything was done with professionalism, care, and compassion. I already have my policy with them to save my family from the million things that have to happen because the Neptune Society does them all.
Having been my father’s executor, I can truly say that my experience with Neptune Society was far superior to what I had to go through with him. This is a gift you give your family.

Our TX daughter had used Neptune Society when her husband had passed in 2015 (from a recommendation of a friend) and related to us how much easier it was to deal with the initial paperwork processing so she could attend to other necessities. We had signed up in June 2017 with Neptune Society and didn’t expect to need their direction and help for my husband’s passing the first part of March 2018. Neptune Society has been extremely helpful in initiating an immediate response with directions and explanations, and what they would do first, and the rest of the steps that would and were their job to finalize this procedure. Carrie Pixler at this office, guided me and our daughters with sympathetic but efficient detail, to lessen the burden that grief carries.

Alejandro took care of the details for me. I am 89 and he explained everything to me and was extremely patient. He took the time and even came over to me and help me fill out all the paperwork. I was amazed that he drove so far to help me out when probably everyone goes to the office to do that. Well, he did and he is a very good guy. When the cremation was completed he called me and didn’t even tell me to come pick up the cremated remains, he just showed up and brought the remains to me personally. He went out of his way to bring me the cremated remains, the flag and goodwill. He truly cared and he was wonderful to me. I want to thank him a million times for all the kindness he showed me. I really appreciate him and the Neptune Service.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you and especially your associates Mr. Brennan O’ Shea and Randy Buck for the delicate attention and human respect in the moments of grief and sorrow at the passing of our beloved mother Nora.
The way they carried out their duties and the respect they showed towards Nora was heartwarming. These gentlemen embodied what every grieving relative expect at one of the saddest moments in their lives.
Our mother was taken care of like a QUEEN and we will always be grateful for this gesture.
Please extend our thanks to Brennan and Buck.

My representative was Carrie **. Throughout this entire process, Carrie was patient, caring and understanding. She was sensitive to the fact that I had lost a loved one and walked me through everything that I needed to do and explained everything thoroughly. She made the experience as painless and as easy as possible. When I picked up my grandmother’s remains, I was able to meet Carrie in person and thank her. We were very satisfied with the quality of the products we purchased from the marketplace. The only suggestion I would make is to have a little more flexibility to adjust the graphics on the products. The image I received was a little distorted.

My wife Rene and I wish to express from the bottom of our combined heartfelt gratitude to the Neptune Society. Not only for their genuine heartfelt compassion and empathetic attentiveness, but also for their ability to far exceed any and every expectation we may have had concerning the preceding loss of my father-in-law Edmund Manchego. We wish also to convey our deepest heartfelt appreciation and special thanks to Mr. Alejandro for going above and beyond to make sure my wife and I were completely comfortable with every single aspect of the services while managing to refrain from becoming overbearing. His ability to attend radiating warmth and genuinely compassionate demeanor directly with every aspect of the services was second to none and much appreciated. My wife and I are fairly simple people. We choose to walk through this fickle pass, with the brilliant light of Life Illuminating the love in our hearts so that we can truly let flourish the bonds we create. We both understand how precious this gift of life is and how fortunate we are to be a part of an existence overflowing with beauty and Limitless Wonder. When the light of life has been stolen from the eyes of the ones held close to our hearts. The weight of sadness, loss, and pain is crippling. Attempting to minimize the grieving in order to orchestrate the process of passing truly test one’s capacity, patience, and strength. We wish to express our deepest gratitude and appreciation to the Neptune Society for exceeding any standard. Although anticipated, the passing of Edmund Manchego devastated our family. When a man of his caliber takes his last breath. To us honoring his memory takes precedence. The level of genuine compassion, attentiveness, and Care extended from the Neptune Society allowed us to honor Edmund in the proper way. Their attention to detail, professionalism, and kindness is second to none. We wish also to send special thanks to Alejandro for his capacity to comfort, ability to inform and finesse and fax ciliation. Free from a presence of overbearing nature his willingness to go above and beyond will never be forgotten. From the bottom of our hearts thank you.

The Neptune Society staff provided courteous and conscientious support with all the sensitive issues related to our family member’s passing. We needed to arrange for payment from an independent Neptune Society in California to the local Neptune Society in Arvada. Also needed to coordinate obtaining a burial permit in California and scheduling a ceremony at a California military cemetery. The staff in Arvada took care of those details, which was a load off our shoulders. We identified a correction that needed to be made to our initial invoice, and the staff promptly made the correction. Overall, we received attentive and very good service and are grateful for the assistance received from the Neptune Society.

My daughter passing suddenly on 4/21/17 is the most devestating and painful thing ever to happen in my life. I was very unsure how to even start with her final arrangements. Mr. Ruiz at the Arvada Co office was one of these nicest , helpful people I have ever met. Mr. Ruiz helped me every step of the way . I am forever grateful for his help and genuine compassion. Thank you, Amanda Reza

I recently lost my father. My father had an account with Neptune Society. This was understandably a very difficult time for my family. I contacted Alejandro Ruiz from the Neptune Society of Denver. From the first time I spoke with Alejandro he was extremely kind and helpful. Alejandro helped guide me through the process for my father. He was always easy to reach and quick to respond to my every request. I cannot adequately express my gratitude to Alejandro. I highly recommend the Neptune Society.

Losing someone that you love has a disorienting emotional quality that makes it difficult to go forward with plans, even when arrangements have been previously put into place. I felt quite grateful to the director of the Arvada CO Neptune Society, Alejandro Ruiz for guiding me through the necessary steps in carrying out my father’s last wishes in a professional and yet personally warm and flexible manner. Mr. Ruiz and the entire staff at the Arvada Center accommodated personal requests and minor changes promptly and courteously. I felt a commitment on the part of the entire staff to minimize any extra strains on the grieving family and I appreciated their care for us all very much.

My father signed up for and used Neptune Society. After he passed away, we had somebody that handled all of the associated tasks and everything was handled very well with Neptune Society. They were empathetic but no pricing was discussed because everything was prepaid. It was comforting to know that they were going to take care of everything and I didn’t really have to do much of anything other than to call them and tell them that my dad has passed away.

I have to say that I was stunned to see bad reviews posted here. My parents purchased a cremation plan several years ago. My father passed January ’17 and everything they promised they would do – they did. It was an incredibly kind and easy (as easy as it can be considering we just lost my dad) process. We made a couple of phone calls and everything was handled. My mom was able to pick up my dads remains 10 days later with copies of the death certificate and certificate of cremation. This was truly the best gift my parents could have given the 3 of their children. We knew that we were doing a memorial service at a later date and were able to grieve and spend time together with very few worries and no added costs or upset. I have to say thank you to the Neptune Society and to Carrie for helping to honor my dad’s wishes and allowing us to grieve with dignity.

Back on Nov. 17th, when I opened my front door to Scott Wills, it didn’t take long to see he was able to handle the subject matter exactly the way I do-with compassion and humor-his presentation manner was professional but warm and he had me convinced within a few minutes to go with the plan I chose!! Thank you very much, Scott!!

I’ve had 3 family members use Neptune Society. 2 in California and 1 in Phoenix. We have had great service from the Neptune Society. I would NEVER use a funeral home again. I made one phone call and that was it. We never had a salesman try to upsell us anything after the fact and we didnt have any surprise charges. I would recommend this company to anyone who wants cremation!

I cant say enough great things about this company. I’ve used a funeral home in the past and other “societies” here in Denver and no other company can come close to the service Neptune Society provides. After experiencing what Neptune has to offer I have told many friends and family members about them and they have also used them for preplanning their cremations as well.

Places to Scatter Ashes in Colorado
Garden of the Gods Visitor and Nature Center
Garden of the Gods Visitor and Nature Center is a public park in Colorado Springs. Inform park management of your intentions before arrival and you should have no problems. Officially dubbed the best free attraction in the country, the towering sandstone rock formations against a backdrop of snow-cap mountains make this a site like no other. It is a beautiful place to hold a scattering for your loved one.Photo Credit
Horsetooth Reservoir in southern Larimer County is one of the most stunning places ever to watch a sunset or a sunrise. Watching it right over the massive water way is a breathtaking and memorable place to say goodbye to your loved one.Photo Credit
Chautauqua Park in Boulder is 80 beautiful acres of untouched land. The rolling lawns and mountain views are perfect to go with close friends and families on a sunny day and hold a memorable and meaningful scattering.Photo Credit
The Denver Botanic Gardens is a public botanical garden in the Cheesman Park neighborhood of Denver. With thousands of plants from all around the world (North America’s largest collection of cold-temperate plants), themed gardens, and a conservatory, it won’t take you long to find a beautiful spot to scatter your loved ones ashes. Be sure to call the Gardens beforehand and ensure you have permission before you arrive. While nature scatterings are always beautiful, a place like this is nice because you can remember where you scattered them and go back to visit any time you like.Photo Credit
Evans Memorial Chapel is an Early Gothic Revival style chapel on the campus of the University of Denver. It is a beautiful and nationally registered historical site very popular for weddings and memorial services. As it is on the school’s campus you are required to get permission, but this could be a lovely place to hold a memorial service and then go right outside and scatter the ashes.Photo Credit
Additional Notes on Scattering Cremated Remains in Colorado
Colorado law allows you to scatter ashes over uninhabited public land, over a public waterway or sea, or on private property of a consenting owner. If scattering at sea you must be at least 3 nautical miles from land, notify the EPA within 30 days of scattering, and avoid beaches and wading pools. You must obtain a permit to scatter on federal land. You can also scatter the ashes, but NOT the container, from the air as the government doesn’t consider cremains to be hazardous material. If the container isn’t biodegradable you must remove the ashes from the container before scattering.
Colorado Cremation FAQs
What happens if you can't afford funeral services for you or your loved on in the state of Colorado?
Although state funeral and burial assistance is in decline, there are available resources. To qualify for the Colorado Indigent Burial and Cremation program, the deceased must have no estate from which to pay for a funeral, no family who can afford a service, and be ineligible for assistance from the Social Security or Veterans administration. If these criteria are met, the Public Administrator, or Indigent Burial Officer of the state, pays for a direct cremation of the deceased (the least expensive method). This is why it’s so important to pre-plan.
What is state cremation rate?
Colorado cremation rate is more than 72%, according to 2020 CANA Annual Report.
What veterans benefits are available in Colorado?
The VA benefits provided (at no cost to the family) include a grave site; opening and closing of the grave; perpetual grave site care; a government headstone or market; and United States burial flag that can be draped over the casket or accompany the urn (and is given to the next of kin after the service); an engraved presidential memorial certificate signed by the current sitting President, expressing the country’s grateful recognition of their service
How many funeral homes are there in Colorado?
There are 167 funeral homes in 87 cities of Colorado.
