Life well celebrated

Whether you seek a basic cremation with plans to scatter the remains in a meaningful place, a full traditional funeral with a graveside service, or a modern celebration of life with live music, favorite foods and a send-off that speaks to the passions of yourself or your loved one, our mission is to help families create unique and personalized memorials.

Reception room at Sparkman Funeral Home & Cremation ServicesWant an afternoon garden party with the perfect florals and finger foods? Or maybe an evening wine and cheese gathering is a better fit. Were you thinking bigger? Perhaps a mariachi band, colorful decor, a taco bar and tiny potted succulents as mementos? Or maybe a no-holds-barred motorcycle procession, rock band and leather keychain mementos is more the right speed.

From cupcakes to crab cakes, the Cowboys to car racing, puppies to putters, we take the things that mattered most to someone and string them together to create a singular, heartfelt memorial. If you can imagine it, we will make it happen.

History

Sparkman Funeral Home, in Richardson, comes from a long and rich history of funeral homes serving the greater Dallas areas.Lobby at Sparkman Funeral Home & Cremation Services

Our journey begins

Originally established by George W. Loudermilk in 1893 and purchased by Will R. Sparkman in 1920, our funeral home operated under the name Loudermilk-Sparkman from its downtown Dallas location at Elm and Ervay streets, then from a building near the present site of Dallas City Hall, and later from a location at Elm and Harwood streets.

As his business built a reputation as Dallas’ premier funeral home, Will moved it to a city landmark. In 1926, Loudermilk-Sparkman relocated to the A.H. Belo mansion at Ross Avenue and Pearl Street, which had been built by Colonel A.H. Belo, founder of "The Dallas Morning News." Though Sparkman remodeled the mansion, he preserved its homelike qualities and Colonial grandeur.

Growing funeral services, locations

Our funeral home remained in that downtown Dallas location until 1976, when Sparkman/Hillcrest Funeral Home opened on Northwest Highway in North Dallas, adjacent to Hillcrest Memorial Park cemetery. In order to better serve the growing Dallas community, Sparkman/Crane Funeral Home opened in 1956 at Garland and Easton roads.

Sparkman Funeral Home and Cremation Services in Richardson opened in 1995 to conveniently serve families in the Richardson, North Dallas and Garland areas. In addition, Sparkman has had the honor of caring for such notable names as Mickey Mantle, Greer Garson, Tom Landry and Margaret Hunt Hill.

"The staff was respectful of my grieving process. All of my contacts made it clear that they were there for me and my family. I work full time, so I appreciated the efficiency of my appointments. Nobody tried to pressure me into a service that I considered unnecessary."

"Sparkman provided top notch service and delicate care. They found every opportunity to go above and beyond the 'call of duty' for my family when we lost my teenage son last month. They bent over backwards to help us accommodate as much family as possible during covid. I was very impressed and touched by all of the personal care and attention from all of the staff. And it was an absolutely beautiful place to gather and honor his life. We found them because my mother in law had purchased a prearranged plan that also covered her children and grandchildren. This saved us SO much money and we were stunned that such great coverage was offered by Dignity. We are so grateful that we found them! Especially Kristine Reed! (funeral director)"
