    Russell L Brown

    Funeral Director

    Russell celebrated his 15th year of providing funeral services in Texas in 2016. A native of Dallas and graduate of W. W. Samuell High School, Russell began his career as a pastor serving New Mexico, Wyoming, Oklahoma and Texas. Burial and cremation service training took him to Richardson, Grand Prairie and Dallas. He gained experience driving limousines before finishing his funerary apprenticeship in Beaumont. Russell helped families from Quitman to Weatherford celebrate the memory of their loved ones until he finally settled in as a member of our team. “I strongly believe that being a Funeral Director is a calling,” Russell says. “I realize that I had a blessing to serve and minister to families in times of grief, and most of all, help get them through a time of sadness.”
