Building on the long-standing tradition of individual care, compassion and professionalism Earl and Olene Darby are the proud new owners of Darby Funeral Home in Canton, GA. Established in 1961 by Ernest “Cotton” Huey and his wife Anne, as Huey Funeral Home. This landmark funeral home in downtown Canton has been in the same location since its opening and plans to remain a vital part of the business community for many years to come.
In December 1961, Ernest “Cotton” Huey and his wife Anne opened Huey Funeral Home on Main Street in Canton, GA. This hometown business was committed to honest and compassionate service. To maintain the high standards it had come to be known for, several dedicated employees were added as the business grew.
Earl W. Darby joined Huey Funeral Home in September of 1972 and has been with the company either part time or full time ever since. His dedication to the business and to serving the Canton community strengthened when Earl and his wife Olene purchased Huey Funeral home on January 1, 2009. On February 10, 2009 they changed the name to Darby Huey Funeral Home to reflect the new ownership, but also to honor the heritage and service by the Huey family.
Thank you for your support....during this time of transition
Just as Earl has stayed with the funeral home through the years, several employees continue to show their support and dedication to the business. One is Joe Dowda, the first employee hired in 1961. Earl, Olene and the rest of the employees look forward to continuing to serve the area's families at Darby Funeral Home.
Caring for families in one of the most difficult times of their lives is still the number one commitment of Darby Funeral Home. Earl & Olene Darby and the caring staff have a long time vested interest in this business and know that serving with honesty and integrity is why the people of Canton have placed their trust with them in the past and will continue to do so in the future.
