Our History

 John and Leward have over 30 combined years experience as funeral directors in Upshur County, This is the first funeral home built here for over 50 years. We are committed to excellence and service. John was the general manager in Gilmer over 20 years and Leward managed the funeral home in Gladewater for about half that time. We are proud to be here to serve your family as if it was our own.
