3rd Generation of Service to the Community
Samuel who married in 1962 fathered three children. His daughter Alwyn finished Hampton University and after teaching for two years, and working for the State of Florida decided to attend Mortuary School and became a licensed Funeral Director in the family business.
Today, Alwyn Gaines, a third generation family member is the general manager of the family business.
Alwyn, a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority is slowly following in her Father’s footsteps by working with the Little League Organization.
Of the original businesses started by the brothers, only this location maintains the original name Stone Brothers Funeral Home. The motto started by Edward in 1916 is still our guide, “Courtesy– Service – Satisfaction”.
