Our Story

The Business was started in 2005 by James Fender Jr., in Lexington, Kentucky.

It is significant that James, built and operated the business on the highest level of standards and values which have carried on through out the years.

Mary Devine Hale joined the establishment as a Licensed Funeral Director/Executive Assistant in 2017.

Peter "Pete" Williams joined the establishment as a Apprentice Assistant in 2020.

Through out the years, the funeral home has always been focused on their dedication to excellent service for each family that we have the pleasure to serve in their most difficult hours. We will always strive to meet the needs and wants of our devoted families because we care about them.

Today, the Fender Funeral Directors, along with a dedicated and experienced Staff, provide compassionate care and support to families when death occurs.
