Due to the Executive Order from Governor Roy Cooper and guidance from the Center for Disease Control and local Health Departments we are now only able to offer private family services, private graveside services, or private visitations until further notice.
We are encouraging the public to share condolences through our website and will be offering extended hours for individuals to come by the funeral home and pay condolences outside of normal visitation hours.
The Pugh-Troy Funeral Home's highest priority is always the safety of our client families, community and employees. We know you continue to hear and see news reports about the coronavirus, or COVID-19, and some of its effects around the world and in the USA. We are closely monitoring this evolving situation and are following the health guidance for funeral homes provided by the CDC.
Pugh-Troy Funeral Home always strives to provide a clean, healthy environment for families to honor and remember their loved ones. Our staff is taking extra steps to maintain this level of care for the families we serve, our community and employees during this heightened time of awareness as a result of COVID-19.
We apologize for any inconvenience these measures cause, but by working together we can mitigate the impact this virus may have on our communities.

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.
