The Lunn family has been serving the North Texas area since 1913. That tradition continues today at Lunn's Colonial Funeral Home in Wichita Falls. Through the years, the Lunn family has always endeavored to treat our families with the utmost care, compassion, and respect. Those we serve come to us in their time of greatest need, and we always try to live up to the trust placed in us. Raymond N. Lunn, Jr. and Will Z. Lunn, of Lunn's Colonial Funeral Home, represent the third and fourth generations of funeral service professionals in our family. Ray's grandfather, W.N. Lunn, began the first Lunn's Funeral Home in Olney, Texas. Ray's father, Raymond Lunn, joined his father in the funeral business in 1933. Later, Ray's brother Don also joined his father in the business in the early 1960s. Ray's grandfather was a partner with the Merkel-Lunn Funeral Home in 1920, at 10th and Austin in Wichita Falls; however, in 1924, he sold his interest and kept operating the original Lunn's location in Olney and another funeral home in Archer City. Since 1986, the Lunn family has been proud to serve Wichita Falls once again. In 2013, the family will celebrate 100 years of service to the larger North Texas area. Ray Lunn has been a licensed funeral director since 1966. His son Will followed in his footsteps. Now the fifth generation Lunn, Cuatro, has joined the business as well.
Lunn's Colonial Funeral Home opened in 1986 and is now a part of a company that operates the original Lunn's Funeral Home in Olney, as well as the Falls Funeral Home and Cremation Center here in Wichita Falls. Ray has instilled in the subsequent Lunn generations a family philosophy of dignity, honor, and respect in funeral service. Even though he is well past retirement, he continues to keep an active hand in all three funeral homes. Will Lunn is also actively involved in the day to day operation of the three funeral homes, as well as in the strategic planning for the future of the family-owned business. Our professional and caring staff is always available to assist with guidance and support, whether it is answering questions, handling funeral services for a loved one, prearranging personal services, or simply speaking with someone concerning issues you've always wondered about, but didn't feel comfortable asking. At Lunn's Colonial Funeral Home, we never forget that we are here to serve you.
