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 Funeral Homes’ 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 Funeral Homes 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.
Welcome to Pugh Funeral Home
As traditions might change, one thing remains constant- the personal care and professional attention given to each family we serve. Because of this care we have been rated as one of the top funeral homes in the country, a designation of which we are very proud and work hard to maintain.
Pugh Funeral Home, Asheboro, NC, is proud be part of the Pugh Funeral Home Family. The Pugh Funeral Home tradition started 170 years ago in 1857, now serving Families from five Piedmont North Carolina locations, Asheboro, Randleman, Troy, Siler City, and Star. Since our beginning we have always have been a family owned and operated business we continue to be so now.
Pugh Funeral Home can trace its roots back to 1857. Emory Kearns, a well-known Randolph County citizen, sold coffins and officiated at funerals as a sideline to his furniture store. An associate of Kearns, O.R. Fox, took over both businesses in 1885. Fox's son-in-law, Jess T. Pugh, joined the firm in 1921 and later purchased it in 1927. In 1932 Jess Pugh separated the funeral home from the furniture business and officially established Pugh Funeral Home.
The Randleman facility was established in 1938 and the Pugh-Troy Funeral Home was purchased in 1967 from Mr. Gene Reynolds. In 1984, the Pughs moved their Asheboro facility into a newly constructed home at 437 Sunset Avenue. By 1993, the Pughs had established Randolph County's first crematory- Central Carolina Crematory. Also in 1999, the Buckner Family of Siler City approached the Pughs regarding the purchase of their family's funeral home. Later that year Smith & Buckner Funeral Home of Siler City, North Carolina joined the Pugh family firms.
Early in 2017 Riley and Marilyn Phillips contacted the Pugh's. In March of 2017 Phillips Funeral Home in Star, North Carolina joined the Pugh family firms. Riley continues to manage the firm.
New Hope Memorial Gardens opened in 2001. This 42 acre site is becoming one of the premier cemeteries in the area. The initial 3 acres offer over 2800 interment spaces in a beautifully landscaped haven.
Throughout the years, the firm has remained family owned and operated. Jess Pugh's son, J.T. "Jack" Pugh, became President of the company in 1953. Today, the reigns of leadership are in the hands of two of his sons: Mac and Ed Pugh.
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
