Our History

​Legacy Funeral Home and Cremation Center is the result of the desire of Shawn Williamson to carry on a family tradition of compassion and service.

The legacy began in 1897 at R. J. Coulter Undertaking Company in Dayton, Tennessee. The family has grown and several branches of the funeral firm have come and gone over the years but the tradition of being "family owned and family focused" is practiced again today in the same manner as the late R. J. Coulter and the late Jimmy Williamson, Sr. 

We are dedicated to serving our families with respect and dignity. We strive to meet families where they are in their grief process. No two families are alike; therefore, we tailor each and every service to meet the individual needs of the family. We specialize in personalization and take great pains to assist our families in creating a unique tribute to celebrate the lives of their loved ones.

We are honored that you see fit to entrust us with the care of your loved ones. We are committed to serving you at the highest level of professionalism and business ethics.
