The hours of operation for Crockett L. Reed Funeral Home 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

“We are open from nine to five. I actually live at this location, and then my brother has an apartment at the other funeral home, so there is someone at both of the locations all of the time,” he said.

Crockett L. Funeral Home offers funeral services, visitations, embalming, cremation, and monuments.

Being a family-owned business is something that sets them apart from other funeral homes in the area.

“I don’t think that there is anybody else in the area like that, and it is extremely important to us,” he said. “It makes it nice, and it makes it a lot easier too.”
