Our Story

Learn our story, from the beginning and into the future.

Peck Funeral Home traces its origins to 1929 when James Elliotte Peck purchased the Corsbie Furniture &Hardware Store.  In the beginning, the location was nothing more than a room in the back of the store where caskets and materials to make them were kept. Mr. Peck himself was essentially "the funeral home", traveling out to direct services and oversee preparations which took place only in homes or churches.

Since Elliotte’s time there have been three generations to make their place in the business. All three started in a similar fashion, working in the business during their teenage years. Each generation graduated from Morgan County High School/Hartselle High School and went to Auburn for a business degree. While each has their own special impact on the business, what remains the same are the invaluable lessons passed down to each other. Robert, Jim, and Arthur are all currently active in the business and have the privilege of being able to work together.

We believe it is important to keep the funeral home in our family, so we can maintain the traditions and values we have held dear for 90 years now. While our family lineage is a proud part of our business, our employees are the heart of the business. The funeral home proudly employs over 30 individuals. Currently the Funeral Home is managed by Geoff Halbrooks, who has held that position for almost 20 years. He has been instrumental in the growth and the reputation the funeral home holds today.  

While we are proud of our past we are also excited about our future. We continue to make upgrades to our facility to better accommodate those we serve. We strongly believe in investing in our community and school systems. We have a wonderful group of employees, who treat each other and those they serve as their own family. The funeral business as a whole has endured a lot of changes since the start of Peck Funeral Home. While the culture we live in seems to be morally falling apart, we will always demand respect in the way our services are conducted, and respect for the families we serve. Our standards will never be lowered.    

As generations go by we have tried to keep in mind what our founder, Elliotte Peck, realized from the start.  Taking care of families is what the funeral business is all about.  We continue to believe "Service from the Heart" is the most important thing we provide to the families we serve.
