Our beginnings

Lawrence E. Young Sr. and his wife, Lois, were looking for a place to relocate in order to begin a business and raise a family. They came from Litiz, PA which is known as Pennsylvania Dutch country, and on a visit to Clarks Summit knew it should be their home. The people of Clarks Summit changed their lives forever. It was in 1954 that Larry began serving the area with the Lawrence E. Young Funeral Home. In 1972, his son, Lawrence E. Young (Bud), joined his father in the business. He continued the tradition that his parents began, of serving the community, until 2009. The third generation, Stephen L. Young is now Owner of the firm.

About six years ago Eric Parry interned with our firm. He is now the funeral home supervisor and he has been instrumental in the growth and success of our monument business, SPY Stoneworks. I believe we have developed a team to assist us in making every funeral customized to the individual. We are always open to any suggestions or requests that you may have.
