“Growing up in a family retail business was an incredible learning experience. My father taught me a great deal about customer service and how to earn the trust of people. Incorporating this experience has made my transition into the Locke Funeral Home Family seamless. The family and staff at Locke Funeral Home are all about doing the best for the families they serve at their time of need and beyond. It is my privilege to work with such an outstanding group of people.”
