    James L Arledge


    James has been working in the funeral business since the 1970s, and he brings to every funeral he helps plan an attention to detail that really helps a family tell the story of a lost loved one. James' outlook on funeral care changed after he lost his son in an accident at the age of 19. He understands at a deep, personal level the comfort needed by families who have suffered a loss. 

    A native Texan, James was born in Crockett and lived in Houston for 22 years before settling in Moulton. In his spare time, James likes to go to his farm, work with cattle, do yardwork and be with his family.
