Powell Funeral Home was founded by J.N. Powell in 1895 and was later sold to I.F. Chandler whose daughter Bessie Chandler Clark operated the funeral home until 1948. The funeral home was then sold to D.A. "June" Blue and E. Troy Geer who were brothers in law. After several years of operation together Troy decided to step aside, and June continued to operate Powell Funeral Home. A young man Frank "Jerry" Hardister came to work for June and would later become his successor.
June was very active in the community and respected by all. He served in many facets within the community while grooming Jerry into a confident funeral director. In 1987 June passed away after a hard fought battle with cancer. At that point Jerry assumed the role as owner and president of the company. Jerry used the talents that he had learned from June and continued a strong and loyal business until he retired. In 2008 Tommy Prickett and Robert Nunnaley of Fry and Prickett Funeral Homes purchased Powell Funeral Home. Together they have over 70 years of funeral experience in Moore County.
The legacy that began more than 110 years ago continues as we strive to help people of Moore County at their most trying times of need. Thank you for placing your trust in us.
