When Thomas McAfee founded this funeral home in 1913 on South Main Street, he was a man of determined purpose, yet a man of dreams. He envisioned a growing community and planned his establishment to serve
the increasing needs of the people.
It was still the days of the horse-drawn hearse, yet, in only two years, he brought the first motor ambulance to Greenville, a Winton Six.
Down through the years the business grew because of his purpose and his ideals, and because he believed in personal, intimate service from which grows friendship and understanding.
After the death of his father in 1943, Thomas McAfee, Jr. became President and remained active until his death in 1993. At that time, Thomas McAfee, III took the helm and great-grandsons Thomas McAfee, IV and John McAfee oversee the daily operations of the firm today, making the fourth generation active in the business.
Since 1952, Thomas McAfee Funeral Home has been located in downtown Greenville at 639 North Main Street. A second location was dedicated in 1992 at 6710 White Horse Road in the northwest area of town. The most recent addition is the Thomas McAfee Cremation Center, opened in August 2001 to serve those who prefer cremation as a method of disposition.
The McAfee family and our many loyal, long-term associates are proud of our heritage and that we have been able to play a part in the progress of Greenville. We continue to work together to render the same complete and efficient service to every family, regardless of their means.
