The Roberts family has been dedicated to funeral service since 1898, when C.V. Roberts, a dedicated community leader, first entered the profession in a small frame building in Ocala, FL.
In 1937, C.V. passed the business to his son Edgar S. Roberts, who was married to the former Sarah Doris Hemphill of Dunnellon,Fl. Together they owned and operated Roberts Funeral Home. Kenneth followed in the family tradition by entering the funeral profession and was actively involved in the family business. In 1963, the Roberts family opened an ambulance service in Dunnellon, FL. in the old army barracks. In 1964, the Roberts family built the first and only crematory in North Central Florida and for many years provided cremations for other funeral homes.
Kenneth assumed control of Roberts Funeral Home of Dunnellon in August of 1992. Through a pre-need marketing program and an emphasis on professionalism, the company continues to be a dominant funeral home in West Marion County.
Seeing a need to offer the finest in service and facilities an on-premises crematory was added with the newest technology in cremation. As the funeral industry moves toward specialization, the company has trained its staff in order to provide the most professional service possible to efficiently and effectively meet the needs of its residents.
