Steve Douglas, whose family dates back to territorial days in Ardmore, began his career in funeral service with Harvey Funeral Home when he was a 15 year old high school sophomore. His grandfather, John Small, was a good friend of Cecil Harvey, who helped arrange the job in 1951.
“I’ve always worked here,” Douglas said. “Even on vacations from school and the military.”
After attending Oklahoma A & M, Douglas in 1956 enrolled in the Dallas Institute of Mortuary Science and was licensed by the state of Oklahoma that year.
In August 1978, Douglas agreed to purchase 51 percent of the firm, and he gained controlling interest in 1988.
