Our Story

Crafting memories in stone… It’s our engraving journey.

It all began for Deanne Tillotson and William (Billy) Kenney in the fall of 2021. After working for Silverthorn Landscape Supplies for 12 years, Deanne heard that Cheryl was considering selling Custom Rock Creations. The two of them contacted Cheryl, and the journey to purchasing Custom Rock Creations was complete June 2022. In addition to managing the day-to-day tasks at CRC, Deanne and Billy travel throughout Ontario sandblasting onsite engravings.

A Little History

Custom Rock Creations was founded in 2006 by Cheryl Campbell-Wolny, who identified a market for engraved rock signs. The “Campbell’s” was her first project, and word of mouth soon led to various new creations around the countryside! Located on 258 Exeter Road, London ON since its opening, Cheryl sold the business in late spring 2022 to Deanne Tillotson and William (Billy) Kenney. These new owners are continuing the company’s legacy while also introducing their own ideas.
