In May of 1980, Randy and Belinda purchased a small interest of the funeral home from Herbert Callaway. The next year they acquired the remaining interest of Callaway Funeral Home from Mr. Callaway. Randy and Belinda purchased the Claybar-Waller-Ramsey Funeral Home in Crockett in 2001, and elected to close that location, and operate out of the Houston Ave. location.
