Don Adkins Funeral Director/Pre-Need Advisor
Don brings his extensive experience in funeral service to the Bailey-Love Mortuary, helping us to serve Andrews, Huntington, Roanoke and surrounding communities. “I am glad that Bailey-Love Mortuary has chosen to remain independent of consolidators and remain locally-owned and family-operated for over 107 years. I feel I can personally serve families better through a funeral firm which its owners have stayed strongly active with Huntington and the surrounding communities. I share their philosophy of funeral service; to serve each family with dignity, integrity, and neighborly understanding.” Don is available for those persons wishing to establish pre-arrangement plans, and those who wish to transfer their plans to us at Bailey-Love Mortuary. Cost comparisons are most welcome as well as no obligation consultations. He can be reached at Bailey-Love Mortuary, (260)356-1710.
