News About Our Company and Industry

Review this page for news, articles, videos and information about Peter Troost Monument Company and the memorial industry.

The Fecarotic monument was commissioned by a gentleman who had recently lost his wife. The customer wanted the monument to be elegant and softly angelic. It was made with imported Angel White granite, and the carvings were done in a three-inch relief. The monument was designed by Beverly Christofaro of Peter Troost Monument Company.
