Our Story

Learn our story, from the beginning and into the future.

At a time when many funeral homes are owned by mega-corporations listed on the national stock exchanges, Music Funeral Services has remained a local family business. The Music's feel they can better serve Valdosta and Lakeland's families and its communities by remaining a family owned and operated business.

The late W.G. "Glyndon" Sr. and Maxine Music founded Music Funeral Services of Lakeland in 1955. After Glyndon's retirement in 1974, he turned the family business over to his son, W.G. "Dub" Music, Jr. In 1995, Casey L. Music, son of Dub Music joined a tradition of compassion and caring for each family's needs no matter what their statue in life.  In 2012, the third son of Dub, Glyndon "Lee" Music, came to work for the family business. Lee is attending mortuary school and will be fully licensed as a funeral director and embalmer by the end of 2017.

In August of 2001, the tradition expanded to a Valdosta location, which Casey is the location manager. After many renovations we feel our facilities can provide a comfortable and homelike atmosphere to accommodate each family's needs.

Music Funeral Services can arrange national and international transfers, prearrangements, and cremations, as well as traditional funerals which can be held either in our chapel, at the cemetery, or one's home church.

Why Us?

In a nutshell? Experience, professionalism, compassion, and empathy.

We've learned a lot over many years. Like how to present options without overwhelming. And how to meet the needs of many caring parties. People come to us in difficult times, and we respond kindness, calmness and expertise. Our goal is to create a beautiful occasion and make you feel welcome, always. We spend our days planning with families. We stay up to date with industry developments. And we make hard times a little easier.
