Davidson Funeral Home Hickory Tree Chapel

Davidson Funeral Home on Hickory Tree Rd. was established in 1999 in order to serve the rapidly growing northern Davidson county area.

Davidson Funeral Home is a locally owned and operated service with a rich history in Lexington and Davidson County dating to 1865. We offer many types of services tailored to meet the needs of the entire community from 2 locations. We also own and operate our own Crematory. Our staff is composed of local funeral professionals, who have been a part of the community for all or most of their lives. Many staff members have been involved in state and national organizations that serve the funeral industry. D avidson Funeral Home has a long and colorful history of providing funeral service in Lexington and Davidson County. We trace our roots to John McCrary who came to Lexington in 1865 as a cabinet maker and sold coffins in his furniture store. In 1908 a young R. O. Kirkman, Sr. began working for Mr. McCrary and in 1910 Mr. Kirkman graduated from Cincinniti College of Embalming and returned to Lexington as the first licensed embalmer in town. Over the next several decades Mr. Kirkman operated as McCrary Furniture & Embalmers, Kirkman & Penniger, Lexington Funeral Directors, Kirkman & Son and in 1940 incorporated as Davidson Funeral Home, Inc. R. O. Kirkman, Sr. had two sons who followed him in the funeral business. A. Victor Kirkman and R. O. Kirkman, Jr. The assumed control of Davidson in 1948 and owned and operated the business until 1989 when they sold the business to Jack & Joan Briggs who have owned and operated Briggs Funeral Home in a neighboring town since 1970, and to Larry Morrison who had been employed with Davidson since 1983. A. Victor Kirkman died at the age of 88 in 2001 and R. O. Kirkman, Jr. died at the age of 87 in 2005. They both remained licensed by the state board of funeral service until their death and as long as health permitted they continued to work visitations and funerals spanning a period of almost 100 years of the Kirkman Family’s involvement in funeral service in Davidson County. Jack Briggs serves as president of the company and Larry Morrison is company secretary and general manager. Joan Briggs, a licensed funeral director is vice president and the Briggs’ son Daniel, who serves as Treasurer, joined the firm in 1990. The company build a second location in 1999 on Hickory Tree Road a Winston-Salem address in the growing area of Northern Davidson County.
