The facility, established in 1963, was a vision of a local minister, Leonard Custer. His goal was to offer North Manchester a premier funeral home that featured chapel style parlors and adequate off street parking. Through the years, the building has been modified to accommodate growth and the special needs of our handicapped patrons. In 1968, Darwin & Valeria DeLaughter purchased the business and in 1992 Mike & Kelly McKee became partners. With the DeLaughter's retirement in 2007, the McKee's became sole owners. When Mike retired in 2014, Kelly McKee became the sole owner. On August 15, 2019, Kelly became business partners with Joe Egner.
