History & Staff

We have years of experience caring for families, from all walks of life. Each family comes to us because they know we are leaders in our profession, dedicated to excellence in service, and have the highest integrity.

Our History

In October, 2006, Roger and sons, Jason and Kyle Wolfe established the Wolfe & Sons Funeral Home, LLC----an idea grown from a dream to a reality!

Since the early 1970’s, Roger D. Wolfe had been a licensed Funeral Director working with many firms through the years. His son, Kyle Wolfe, had always dreamed of serving the “home-town” people in Leslie County and surrounding areas. Kyle graduated high school, went to college and became a licensed Funeral Director and Embalmer.

Around the time the Wolfe family began planning for a future business, the old “Kemper Furniture Store” became available. They purchased the building and began a complete renovation---creating a very spacious and comfortable facility with a home-like atmosphere, large chapels and adequate parking.

After the renovations were complete and licenses obtained for business, the doors were opened on October 9, 2006, providing the families of Leslie County and surrounding communities a choice in funeral service.

Since the first day in business, Wolfe & Sons has served many more families with dignity and respect than ever anticipated in such a short time frame.

They look forward to a long future of service and community involvement!
