Our Family

In 1998, Chandler Memorial Funeral Home was opened by owners William and Bonnie Golden. Their dream was to serve the town of Chandler and surrounding communities with excellence in a family owned and operated funeral home. Today, that dream has been realized. Fifteen years later, they continue to pride themselves in the delivery of professional, yet personal, customer service. 

Owner and funeral director in charge, William Golden, has over 40 years of experience serving the people of East Texas in the funeral service industry. With the help of two of his three daughters, he continues to lead the business with excellence. Wendy Fugate, his oldest daughter, serves as the bookkeeper and financial supervisor. Her husband, Philip Fugate, served as the general manager for the business for thirteen years, until his passing in January 2014. Youngest daughter, Kimberly Reeves, serves as the office coordinator. 

Together, as co-workers and family, they continue to provide customers with the highest level of care that they have come to expect.
