    James Max Strickland


    Since the 1980s James Strickland has helped families in the Sylvania and Screven County communities with compassion and an understanding manner during the worst time in their lives: the passing of a loved one. Born and reared in Royston, Georgia, James graduated with honors from Gupton-Jones College of Mortuary Science in Atlanta and is certain that the main goal of a funeral service provider is to offer only the best service, sympathy, and respect for people who are in need of a funeral director.

    James has devoted many years to the funeral profession and is a Rotarian, a Gideon, a deacon and song leader in his church, McDonald Baptist Church. He has also been the coroner of Screven County since the 1990s.
