Our History

Our History

The Parks family began its work in the Hardware and Undertaking Company in 1913 in Dustin and Prague, Oklahoma. In 1946 the second generation of the Parks family continued on in both the hardware and funeral business in Okemah, Oklahoma to serve all of the surrounding areas. Now, the third and fourth generation of our family is now continuing the tradition of honesty and professional service to all of our clients we serve.

We honor all faiths, honor all families, all customs, or beliefs. We respect the financial limitations you may be under, and are deeply committed to providing each of our families with honest, compassionate, and professional service.
