At Llano Cemetery, we pay tribute to the men and women who work to keep the Texas Panhandle safe on a daily basis. That’s why we offer special public services burial spaces to law enforcement, firefighters, and other public service personnel. Found in a unique garden in the Field of Honor, these serene settings allow our fallen community heroes to rest in peace alongside their brothers and sisters in uniform.
Field of Honor
Llano Cemetery consists of over 200 acres developed into gardens, mausoleums, and more to honor your loved one. Among this space includes the Field of Honor, a burial site for both veterans and public servants. Specifically designed to provide a beautiful and honorable final resting place for those who’ve dedicated their professional lives to public service in Texas and the U.S., these public servant burial spaces are a great option for many families.
The Field of Honor might be intended for current and retired public servants, but we also make it a priority to respect the wishes of our fallen heroes and bury family members near each other whenever possible. That’s why we also offer spaces for spouses and other family members.
National Peace Officers Memorial Day
At Llano Cemetery, we go above and beyond to honor and recognize our fallen peace officers. Each year we host the National Peace Officers Memorial Day with a wreath laying ceremony. This dedication is specifically intended to honor law enforcement officers who lost their lives in the line of duty. Family members are encouraged to attend, and the public is also invited as Llano staff and local law enforcement officials gather together in remembrance.
Choosing Llano Cemetery
Llano Cemetery has been serving Amarillo residents for generations, with its history dating back to the late 1800s. What was once a 20-acre plot has expanded over the years, growing to meet the needs of Amarillo’s booming population.
By the 1930s, Llano Cemetery was known as a naturalistic oasis with curving roads, rustic architecture, and important grasses, shrubs, and trees. What was once a simple place to bury the deceased evolved into a park and living monument to the residents of the Panhandle. With the addition of public service spaces, community members can continue to honor those who help propel Amarillo into a thriving city.
Spaces in the Field of Honor are provided to current or retired public servants at a reduced cost, and with pre-planning services, saying goodbye is even more affordable. Call us today to learn more.
