About Us

Hope Haven is family-owned and operated right here in Gonzales, LA for over 26 years by Mona and Ronnie Rodrigue, Sr. We are more than just a sales location....all sandblasting is done at our Gonzales location on Airline Highway.
 
Ronnie is the third generation in the cemetery and monument business since 1942.
 
In 2004, Melissa joined the family business and operates our state of the art computer system that customizes designs pertaining to your loved one. Most proofs can be done while you wait.
 
In 2012, Ryan joined the family business and operates the crane truck, installing monuments and assisting Ronnie, Sr. with building family tombs and granite vault wraps.
 
We have a huge display of monuments at our office location, 1056 N. Airline Hwy. in Gonzales, LA
and keep a large inventory of standard monuments allowing us to have your monument installed within 4-6 weeks max. Custom monuments, of course, do take longer.
We also own and operate 2 cemeteries:
  • Hope Haven Garden of Memory Gonzales - 604 East Highway 30
  • Hope Haven Garden of Memory Prairieville - 37577 Duplessis Rd. (Behind St. John Catholic Church)
