About Us

A Message from the President

Ever since I opened my doors in 2015, I pretty much 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, I prefer to think of it as a time for reflection, appreciation and even celebration.

I totally understand that during this time of transition, your family’s wishes and traditions have never been more important. The right funeral service can make all the difference in helping your family grieve, while also honoring the memory of your loved one.

Because I am independent, family-owned and operated, I have the flexibility and willingness to go the extra mile to create a funeral service uniquely tailored to meet the wishes of you and your loved ones.

I also take great pride in not only being family owned and operated; however, I take a greater pride in being a Licensed Funeral Director & Embalmer Owner. There's a major difference/advantage, in choosing a firm whose owners have successfully completed an accredited program of Mortuary Science and legally serving your family, as a Funeral Service Licensee.

Licensed owners, usually  make solid legal decisions not only based on the business; however, that licensee has his/her license to protect.

As a licensed owner; to me, our industry is not just a business venture or a lucrative way to make money. For me, it's a passion...…..a calling, an internal self fulfillment for helping others . I have scholastically and technically prepared myself to be an expert in this industry. This is a distinct advantage that we have over a firm whose owners are not licensed.

You have every right to hold high expectations from the organization you choose. At E. Vaughn Wray Funeral Establishment, we have a long-standing tradition of providing quality services that start with your initial phone call, and continue all the way to the final repass meal.

My ultimate goal is to help bring your family together to focus on your healing while celebrating your loved one’s life, and we would be honored to help preserve your family’s memories.

With E. Vaughn Wray Funeral Establishment, you will receive a quality of service that the most providers promise to deliver, along with a level of customer care that is refreshingly different from other providers.

You shouldn’t have to choose between quality service or assembly line service; thank you for choosing us here at E. Vaughn Wray Funeral Establishment.

Eric V. Wray, II FSL
