History

Brooks Funeral Home, Inc. has been serving the families of the Fay-West Area since the early 1850s and now through six generations, with service exceeding all expectations for over 170 years

Henry Felgar began a preservation process in the 1850s and also began to manufacture coffins. His grandson, Samuel Clymer Brooks began embalming as we know it today. Shortly after this time, the son of Samuel Clymer Brooks, the late Clyde Beal Brooks established one of the first funeral homes in the area located in the heart of the Indian Creek-Valley.

Finding the need to expand their business the firm opened a funeral home in Connellsville, Pa. which was run by Clyde B. Brooks and his daughter, the late Jeanne Brooks King.

In 1958 Samuel Clyde Brooks, son of Clyde, joined the firm. Today Samuel Clyde Brooks continues as president of the corporation. Under his vision and direction, the business has grown into the modern day funeral home as we know them. In 1986 the Brooks Funeral Home expanded into Mount Pleasant, Pa. Along with his son, David Samuel Brooks and his son, Stephen David Brooks, the sixth generation of funeral directors, they operate the homes in Connellsville and Mount Pleasant along with the daughter of Samuel, Amy Brooks Hertznell. While no longer affiliated with the funeral home location in the Indian Creek Valley, they continue to serve those family members and friends as well, from their locations in Connellsville and Mount Pleasant.

Brooks Funeral Home is poised to serve the funeral and memorialization needs of the families of the entire Fay-west area and pledge to serve with the same complete service and compassion that has been their hallmark for now six generations.
