About

Ted Dickey West Funeral Home stands for compassionate, professional and personal service. Although traditions and customs have changed since our humble 1892 beginnings, our commitment to helping people through one of the most challenging stages of life has remained the same.

Life well celebrated

Chapel at Ted Dickey West Funeral HomeOur mission is to help your family create a personalized celebration of a life well lived. That means that whether you want a basic cremation with ashes scattered in a personally meaningful place, a funeral in our cozy chapel or a no-holds-barred celebration of life with live music, favorite foods and a send-off that expresses the passions of your loved one, we are happy to deliver it. If you can imagine it, we can make it happen.

Want an afternoon ice cream social? Or maybe an evening wine and cheese gathering is a better fit. Were you thinking perhaps of a mariachi band, a taco bar and tiny potted succulents as mementos? Our approach keeps us open to highly personalized contemporary gatherings as well as traditional religious rites.

History

Ted Dickey Funeral Home has a long history of service to the families of Plano and North Dallas.

Humble beginnings

In 1892 Andrew Wetzel and E.O. Harrington partnered to supply caskets, couches and ambulance services to area residents. As with many funeral service providers of the time, the undertaking activities took place in office space located above the furniture store. When Andrew decided to focus on furniture making, the partners split the business. The mortuary, then known as E.O. Harrington Undertaking Company, moved from its second-floor location in downtown Plano to a house located at the west end of the city's 15th Street. E.O. added a 125-seat chapel and a viewing room to the house and Harrington Funeral Home was born. It operated as such until June 1970, when Ted and Carolyn Dickey arrived in Plano and bought Harrington Funeral Home.

New owners, new name

Front exterior building at Ted Dickey West Funeral HomeTed and Carolyn quickly established themselves as valuable neighbors and partners in the North Texas community. They changed the name of their business to Ted Dickey Funeral Home and earned a reputation for providing caring funeral and cremation services to a diverse, multicultural population.

A mortuary growing with the community

In 1974 the Dickeys opened a new 7,200-square-foot mortuary in east Plano at 18th and Jupiter, across the street from Plano Mutual Cemetery, which still serves the community today. Plano grew and the couple opened a second location, Ted Dickey West Funeral Home on the eastbound access road of the President George Bush Turnpike.

Ted is still president of his eponymous funeral home and both he and Carolyn remain active in the Plano community, helping their friends and neighbors.

Ratings & Reviews

Verified Customer Reviews

Since 2005, many of our customers have taken the time to tell us how we did each year via our Voice of the Customer program. Our star ratings and comments from families come directly from these surveys.

"I had only been to so called traditional funerals very stressful, depressing and just an overall emotional day. My sister and I wanted something different that people didn't have to cry and just remember the good times and Brenda and staff at Ted Dickeys West did just that. We did a celebration of life with a small service with the Reverend with uplifting songs and prayer with a slideshow going in the background of pictures before my mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's that we wanted to remember her as. Then we had a few people tell funny stories that reminded them what a wonderful, beautiful and funny mom we had. Then after the service we went to the banquet room for appetizers and drinks and just gathered with friends and family. It was perfect and I'm only saying this since we had watched my mother suffer from Alzheimer's and what it does to your family that we didn't want another sad, depressing day. We wanted to celebrate her life and we did just that. Thank you Brenda and staff at Ted Dickeys West."

"This was the hardest thing we ever did in our life, but Dickey's made our experience very memorable. They took great care to listen to details and captured our loved one's personality. We would recommend them to anyone! The facility was in great shape and very inviting. Our friends and family are still talking about how awesome everything was for my brother."
