Learn the legacy.

Douthit Funeral Services was established on August 13, 2000 through a vision, when God spoke to Thomie Douthit instructing him to start a funeral service that would be innovative and new by offering a service of in home arrangements, where families could make arrangements in a familiar environment.

At our inception there was no physical address, no cars, or a chapel, but God said go forth and the journey began. From a small office at 404 Northgate Park Drive, use of a church sanctuary on Green Way Avenue, a visitation center on N. Cherry Street to our current location at 4655 Brownsboro Road. Our 9,000 sq. foot facility is adorned with a 120 seat chapel and a 2,500 sq. foot visitation space.
