Since 1938

Ray & Allen Funeral Service was established in 1938 by the late Jesse Ray and continues to be owned and operated by Jesse Ray, Jr. and his son, Bryant.

Trust - the reliance on us to do what is right

Respect - the focus on the essential value of human life

Integrity - the adherence to the highest standards of service

Excellence - the continuous improvement in our service

Adherence to these core values are the reason we have provided service for 75 years, the reason why existing client families from generation to generation have selected Ray & Allen and why new client families are comfortable selecting us for the first time.

If you are researching funeral and cremation service for a relative in hospice care, for a death that has either occurred or that is anticipated, or simply to preplan a funeral or cremation, call our office so we may answer any question and be of immediate assistance to you.

 Ray and Allen is not just another funeral home. In handling the service of my father, David Winslow Whittington, their extraordinary professional expertise was matched by a deep sensitivity to our family's needs. Rather than forcing us into a formulaic "business-as-usual" service, Ray and Allen accommodated every one of our special requests. Equally important, Ray and Allen demonstrated that they truly care. They cared about the details of the cremation and memorial service. They cared about exceeding our family's high expectations. And, they cared about the emotional well-being of the entire family. Thank you, Ray and Allen, for making this an uplifting experience.  -- Nina Whittington-Cooper
