Learn our story, from the beginning and into the future.
Ever since we opened our doors we have approached life (and death) differently. While some just see the end of a loved one’s life as a time for grief and mourning, we prefer to think of it as a time for reflection, appreciation and even celebration. This is evident in everything we do, from the way we conduct our services to the amenities we choose to offer. We are not a burial ground. We are a close knit community dedicated to honoring, sharing and preserving the amazing and inspirational stories that are life.
"Experience, professionalism, compassion, and empathy"
We've learned a lot over many years. Like how to present options without overwhelming. And how to meet the needs of many caring parties. People come to us in difficult times, and we respond kindness, calmness and expertise. Our goal is to create a beautiful occasion and make you feel welcome, always. We spend our days planning with families. We stay up to date with industry developments. And we make hard times a little easier.

Mr. Bubba Cunningham
General Manager/ Funeral Director
After an absence of 15 years, Bubba Cunningham has returned to his roots at Holder Wells Funeral Home where he got his start in the funeral business.
One of Jackson County's longest serving licensed funeral directors, Cunningham began his career in 1982 as a part-time employee for George Holder to pay his way through college.
The experience of being trained and mentored by Holder inspired a passion in Cunningham for serving families during their time of deepest need. It was a life-changing experience that led to a full-time career as a funeral director and embalmer.
"There is no greater feeling of satisfaction than knowing I gave others a sense of comfort and peace of mind during one of the most difficult moments in their life," Cunningham said.
When the opportunity arose this fall for Cunningham to return to his roots at Holder Wells Funeral Home, he knew it was his calling.
