The McCreary County Chamber of Commerce recently recognized Hickman-Strunk Funeral Home for more than fifty years of dedicated business service in McCreary County. Now with ninety years of continuous business, the Hickman Funeral Home opened in 1927 with James O. “Hap” Strunk and Tracey (Tucker) Strunk purchasing the business in 1987. Hickman-Strunk Funeral Home was the first local funeral home to place photos on memorial cards, and the first to offer memorial videos. Hickman-Strunk also established the first obituary telephone call line.
