Our Story

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

Ever since we opened our gates we have approached life (and death) differently. While some just see the end of a loved one’s life as a time for grief and mourning, we prefer to think of it as a time for reflection, appreciation and even celebration. This is evident in everything we do, from the way we conduct our services to the amenities we choose to offer. We are not a burial ground. We are a close knit community dedicated to honoring, sharing and preserving the amazing and inspirational stories that are life.

Why Us?

In a nutshell? Experience, professionalism, compassion, and empathy.

Why Us?

We've learned a lot over many years. Like how to present options without overwhelming. And how to meet the needs of many caring parties. People come to us in difficult times, and we respond kindness, calmness and expertise. Our goal is to create a beautiful occasion and make you feel welcome, always. We spend our days planning with families. We stay up to date with industry developments. And we make hard times a little easier.

Learn the legacy.

Hardy-Towns Funeral Home was established in 2001, and serving families has always been our focus. We take pride in being able to guide people through some of their most difficult days. We take pride in maintaining a setting that allows people to find solace. Celebrating life is our mission. That’s never changed. And with pride, it never will.

The year was 2001.   Philip Hardy and his wife, Debbie Tripp Hardy purchased Horne Funeral Home from the Horne Family.  The Horne's had been in the funeral business since 1946 on College Street in Eastman.

Philip along with Jimmy Hendrix and others operated Hardy Funeral Home until 2003 when Hardy joined forces with Rick Towns of Towns Funeral Home in Alamo, Ga.  They joined forces and operated both locations from then til now.

In January of 2009 Hardy-Towns Funeral Home moved to a new Funeral Home on Oak Street in Eastman.  This funeral home is second to none, anywhere.  We are very proud of our facility and our staff, as we can handle any service, no matter how large or how small it may be.
