History of Zechar Bailey Funeral Home
Byron and Myron Zechar founded Zechar Funeral Home in 1941. In 1960 they purchased McKnight & Baker Funeral Home. Byron’s two sons, Kent and Gary, bought the funeral home from their father and uncle in 1979.
In 1979 Joe Bailey became owner/operator of the funeral home in Versailles, and in 1985, Kent, Gary and Joe merged the two funeral homes to become Zechar Bailey Funeral Homes, Greenville and Versailles.
In the mid-1990s, they bought Miller Funeral Home, making them the leading funeral home providers in Darke County.
