Governor Cooper in Executive Order 125 dated May 14, 2021 lifted the face mask requirement for most situations. The order states “it remains critical that North Carolinians exercise personal responsibility to protect themselves and their friends and neighbors from the spread of COVID-19, and the undersigned (The Governor) and the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services continue to identify Face Coverings, social distancing, and washing hands as best practices.”
The safety of our client families, guests, and employees is of upmost importance to us at Pugh Funeral Home, so we ask that unvaccinated persons continue to wear facemasks while in our facilities. And we encourage all to continue to follow the three “W” safety practices of: wear a mask, wait six feet apart, and wash hands frequently.

Funeral services in Troy were conducted by Auley O. Wooley of the Dixie Furniture Company until August 1925 when the business was sold to Troy Furniture Company. The funeral business was conducted from the furniture store, and E.T. Reynolds became manager in October, 1926. Three years later he took a leave of absence to attend Worsham College of Embalming in Chicago. After graduation he return home and was Montgomery County’s first licensed embalmer.
In 1940 the funeral business was separated from the furniture and moved to its present location on North Main Street. Mont L. Reynolds joined the staff in 1945 and remained until his death 1967. In 1950 Mr. and Mrs. John Riley Beaman moved into the apartment upstairs at the funeral home and served as host and hostess for eighteen years.
Pugh Funeral Home, Inc. purchased the funeral home from the Reynold’s family in January 1968. William H. Johnson, was the first manager and remained until his retirement in the early 1980’s. William H. “Bill” Kearns became manager until his retirement in 2008, Sherrill Bumgarner served until 2016. Dean Shelton currently is the manager.
Starting in 2010 the building underwent eighteen months of major renovations which turned it into the modern facility we see today.
The death of someone we care about can be one of the most difficult experiences of life. Words seem inadequate to describe how painful the grief we feel can be. It is often much more challenging than we expect and than others seem to think. Read More
