"Ridout's Brown-Service Funeral Home understands the special care families need during a time of loss. Our staff takes personal pride in providing services in comfortable surroundings without high-pressure sales. We care on a personal level, not because it's our business, but because it's our way of life." — Tim Bailey, Funeral Home Manager

Our staff can help create a beautiful tribute and provide guidance and suggestions on the many decisions made when planning a funeral, cremation, memorial, celebration of life, and/or burial service.
We take pride in meeting the specific, and sometimes unique, needs of each and every family. Please use our website to learn about the funeral, cremation and permanent memorialization services we offer, as well as our pre-planning and grief support resources.

About Us
We Honor Veterans Community Partner

As a We Honor Veterans Community Partner, our funeral home is committed to providing quality services to veterans and their families and to expanding community awareness of the unique needs of veterans and benefits available to them. We will strive to always do our best to ensure that happens.

We Honor Veterans is a program of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to help improve the care Veterans receive.

Originally designed for hospice providers, We Honor Veterans extended its partner opportunities to other community-based health care organizations, such as funeral homes, hospitals, assisted living facilities, and home health agencies.


We provide our families with an open door policy. Please feel free to contact us 24 hours a day.
