    Kenneth Lee Martin

    Manager

    After serving in the military and spending 40-plus years in the corporate world at companies such as General Foods, Borden and Blockbuster, Ken chose a different path—one that would allow him to personally serve others during difficult times. After his father died a few years ago, Ken was so moved by the compassion shown to him by a funeral director, he changed careers. He first went to work as a pre-planning advisor, then he earned his funeral director license while managing Stonebriar Funeral Home and Cremation Services. Today, Ken enjoys creating personalized services that really celebrate the unique lives of loved ones. Ken has lived in the Frisco area for more than 25 years and raised his family as true Texans. He can be found chasing his cattle and his grandchildren whenever time allows and serves as a lay minister at his church.
