About Serenity Funeral Homes LLC

Serenity Funeral Homes LLC was established on June 11, 2015, through the dreams and prayers of managing partners Andre Crockett and Andre Bailey. Together, they bring over 50 years of experience serving families and communities and are elated at the opportunity to make the city of North Las Vegas their first home. At Serenity Funeral Homes LLC, we are proud to be the first African American and family owned and operated funeral home in North Las Vegas.

We specialize in providing you with traditional, yet customized funeral arrangements designed to suit your unique needs. Our goal is to be a visible pillar as a servant throughout Las Vegas and our surrounding communities. We strive to encourage ways to partner with our community staples, such as local schools, churches, police departments, fire departments, hospitals and other community grass roots organizations. With these partners we work towards stopping violence, offering funeral service career options and offering grief counseling services.

For our funeral services, we're dedicated to ensuring you get the high-quality services and results you deserve. We cater to your needs and are never pushy. Let us work with you to decide on and design themes, colors for caskets, personalized DVDs, horse and carriage services, escorts to the burial site and providing a minister, musician, singer or limousines. We encourage you to make an appointment with us so we can give you all the time you need. Same-day appointments are available and we do accept walk-ins when possible.

As all services are completed according to your unique needs, it's not possible for us to give specific turnaround times on any specific service. No matter what, we always take the time to ensure your service is completed properly with the care it needs. We also serve as a community center where people can gather and meet for advice or assistance in your life beyond funeral planning. Contact us today for additional information or to receive a free consultation.

Andre L. Bailey, Managing Partner

Andre L. Bailey is a native of Las Vegas, NV. In observation of his father's passion within the funeral home industry, he developed an interest, skills and experience in the logistics of prep room etiquette. He attended California State University in Long Beach and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in criminal justice with a minor in psychology.

Andre then pursued and completed his certification from The International School of Hospitality. This afforded him the opportunity and experience to serve within the hospitality sector for several years. He worked in a variety of areas, including concierge, trainer and security operations.

Upon his return to Las Vegas, Andre reconvened his affiliation and interests with the funeral industry. He worked part time and on call assisting his father in the prep room at various funeral homes throughout the Las Vegas valley.

Andre has always been passionate about helping others in need. He holds a philosophy of, "who best to serve the community than the natives of that community?" He believes that it's his duty to care for those in need in his community and to continually give back in authentic, effective and empowering ways.

With community service at the heart of Andre's life, he felt the need to take another step in his career - becoming a community liaison in the mental and behavioral health field. He loved his work so much that he felt the need to open his own agency.

This calling birthed New Visions Behavioral Health Academy. The New Visions Behavioral Health Academy has granted the Las Vegas community with professional therapy services along with a variety of other outpatient services designed to empower families towards their highest levels of function.

Currently, Andre sits on the Community Board for the Department of Family Services, Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC). This position gives him additional opportunities to lend a hand and ear toward children and families in need.

Last, but certainly not least, Andre holds his Nevada Funeral Arranger's License, serving Serenity Funeral Homes LLC. He is currently working on the path towards becoming a certified grief counselor.
