History

Located in Greenville, Ohio, Zechar Bailey Funeral Home helps families receive peace through funeral and memorial services. We consider it an honor to have served the community for more than 75 years.

Rooted in service

Byron and Myron Zechar founded Zechar Funeral Home in 1941. In 1960, they purchased McKnight and Baker Funeral Home. Byron’s 2 sons, Kent and Gary, then bought the funeral home from their father and uncle in 1979.

This purchase allowed the funeral home to grow and better meet the community's needs. In 1979, Joe Bailey became owner and operator of the funeral home in Versailles. In 1985, Kent, Gary and Joe merged the 2 funeral homes to become Zechar Bailey Funeral Homes.

In the mid-1990s, they purchased a 3rd location, Miller Funeral Home, making them the leading funeral home provider in Darke County, Ohio.

Generations of care

Today, we have 3rd-generation funeral directors. Everyone at Zechar Bailey Funeral Home takes pride in carrying out the legacy of our grandfather and founder, and we look forward to assisting families in the Greenville area for many more years.

"The level of service you receive from Zechar Bailey is very superior. From the time they pick the body up until your loved one is layed in the grave and everything is settled and over with. This group of people can't be beat!!! I have dealt with them and know them all through deaths which I have had in my family. They have been there for me completely and genuinely though these hard times"
