  • William Gregory Terry

    General Manager

    Greg was first offered the opportunity to work in the funeral business after his father purchased Drum Funeral Home in the summer of 1986. It left such an impression on Greg that he decided to pursue a funeral director license following his graduation from Clemson University in May 1989. He became licensed in April 1991 and enjoys the experience of helping families during one of the toughest times in their lives.

    Greg has been a member, firefighter and secretary of the Conover Fire Department since 1989, a member and past president of the Newton-Conover Rotary Club since 1990 and on the board of directors for Peoples Bank since 2004. He is a member, usher and part of the praise-service set-up crew of Concordia Lutheran Church and a member of the Hickory Sportsman's Club. He was also a past board member of the Sipes Orchard Home Capital Campaign Committee, the Family Guidance Center, the Science Center and the Newton Downtown Revitalization Committee.

    Greg and his wife have been married since April 1992. They have a son and a daughter.
