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.

If you can imagine it, we can make it happen.

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.

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.

"The Staff of Ted Dickey West Funeral Home we're profession, compassionate thorough and exceeded our expectations for my father's services. Jennifer Clapp, the location manager, along with Kristine Reed, walked us through 5e arrangements, including what was covered by our father's prearrangement. Doug Fry, the funeral director who helped navigate and coordinate our service at our family's cemetery an hour from the funeral home, along with Soloman and the other drivers, ensured we were delivered on time And safely. These gentlemen also assisted, with our family pallbearers, to navigate the raised monuments and hill, to reach his final resting place. It was simply a perfect final send off for a former funeral home owner and consummate Funeral Director. I cannot thank the Ted Dickey Staff enough for making a difficult situation simple and stress free."

"I didn't answer the question about the cost being what I expected or more or less than expected, because it had been prepaid years ago. After taking off the cost for the viewing (which I decided not to have - because of Covid) and the cost of doing the photo collage at the funeral (because my church didn't want us showing up but 15 minutes prior to the start - and there would not have been much time for people to have seen pictures displayed on a screen) it ended up that I had overpaid by $37.00. SOOOOO - I have nothing to complain about. I could not have been more pleased. My church had just opened back up for Sunday Services on August 16th. and Johnny died on August 20 -- so we were able to have a church funeral, not just graveside only -- which I did not want. Eighty people showed up and I didn't know what to expect because a lot of people are still uneasy about getting out of their houses. We have been members of my church for 37 years and if it had't been Covid, I bet 200 people would have showed up. I was thrilled with the 80 that showed up. I had a video taken of the funeral service so that I could send it to all the people who would have liked to have been there but were afraid to leave their houses. My two requests were that Johnny live until our 50th. Anniversary and that we be able to have a church funeral service. The Lord granted those two requests. Johnny had been quite ill for 4 - 5 years with 6 different diseases and he was ready to go to his heavenly home. After our church opened back up for the first time since March, I was willing to accept that it was time to release him into the Lord's hands. Ted Dickey did a fantastic job and as stated here, I couldn't have been more pleased with how things turned out. Thank you, thank you, thank you."
