Governor Cooper in Executive Order 125 dated May 14, 2021 lifted the face mask requirement for most situations. The order states “it remains critical that North Carolinians exercise personal responsibility to protect themselves and their friends and neighbors from the spread of COVID-19, and the undersigned (The Governor) and the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services continue to identify Face Coverings, social distancing, and washing hands as best practices.”
The safety of our client families, guests, and employees is of upmost importance to us at Pugh Funeral Home, so we ask that unvaccinated persons continue to wear facemasks while in our facilities. And we encourage all to continue to follow the three “W” safety practices of: wear a mask, wait six feet apart, and wash hands frequently.

Pugh Funeral Home, Randleman, NC, is proud be part of the Pugh Funeral Home Family. The Pugh Funeral Home tradition started 170 years ago in 1857, now serving Families from five Piedmont North Carolina locations, Asheboro, Randleman, Troy, Siler City, and Star. Since our beginning were a family owned and operated business, to continue to provide the best service we have now partnered with Parklawn, a Canadian Corporation.
Pugh Funeral Home can trace its roots back to 1857. Emory Kearns, a well-known Randolph County citizen, sold coffins and officiated at funerals as a sideline to his furniture store. An associate of Kearns, O.R. Fox, took over both businesses in 1885. Fox's son-in-law, Jess T. Pugh, joined the firm in 1921 and later purchased it in 1927. In 1932 Jess Pugh separated the funeral home from the furniture business and officially established Pugh Funeral Home.
The Randleman facility was established in 1938 and the Pugh-Troy Funeral Home was purchased in 1967 from Mr. Gene Reynolds. In 1984, the Pughs moved their Asheboro facility into a newly constructed home at 437 Sunset Avenue. By 1993, the Pughs had established Randolph County's first crematory- Central Carolina Crematory. Also in 1999, the Buckner Family of Siler City approached the Pughs regarding the purchase of their family's funeral home. Later that year Smith & Buckner Funeral Home of Siler City, North Carolina joined the Pugh family firms.
Early in 2017 Riley and Marilyn Phillips contacted the Pugh's. In March of 2017 Phillips Funeral Home in Star, North Carolina joined the Pugh family firms. Riley continues to manage the firm.
New Hope Memorial Gardens opened in 2001. This 42 acre site is becoming one of the premier cemeteries in the area. The initial 3 acres offer over 2800 interment spaces in a beautifully landscaped haven.
Throughout the years, the firm has remained family owned and operated. Jess Pugh's son, J.T. "Jack" Pugh, became President of the company in 1953. Today, the reigns of leadership are in the hands of two of his sons: Mac and Ed Pugh.
The death of someone we care about can be one of the most difficult experiences of life. Words seem inadequate to describe how painful the grief we feel can be. It is often much more challenging than we expect and than others seem to think. Read More
