Our History

A History of Community Service and Trust

The history of Fox Funeral Home dates back to 1931, when Robert Smith and Eubert Ferguson first established a funeral service business in Licking, Missouri. Their business provided services for the Licking community as well as the surrounding areas.

In 1971 the firm was purchased by Don Fox. Until his death in 2007, Don and his wife Carol worked to build a service to the community which would meet the needs of the families during the loss of their loved ones.

Fox Funeral Home still remains it's original location..and continues to be family owned and operated, providing the same hometown values and personalized service that began in 1931.
