In 1995, Perry Thomasson, founded P.G. Thomasson Funeral Services,Inc. operated by him and his wife, Vivian Thomasson. They successfully provided services to the community for nine years.
In 2002, Kevin Sanderlin was hired as the manager of day to day operations until November 2004. Jessie Thomasson, Perry's father, offered Kevin to become part owner of the business.
After Kevin became part owner, a decision was made to change the name of the business to Beach Funeral Services, Inc.
Beach Funeral Services, Inc. 2005-2009
Beach Funeral Services,Inc. was officially established in January 2005. Barbara Jones joined the staff as a partner and office manager.
The building was given a new look with exterior paint, business logo, landscaping and new furnishings. In addition, a fleet of new cars indicated the business was growing in a new direction.
Later that year, Jessie Thomasson sold his interest in the business to Kevin Sanderlin. In March of 2006, the property of the funeral home was purchased by Sanderlin Holding, LLC. Plans to renovate the existing facility begin immediately. Three years and four architects later, the dream and vision of the new Beach Funeral Services, Inc. is now underway.
