Our “Heritage” actually started when the original James A. Cannon founded Cannon Funeral Home in Fountain Inn, S.C. over 135 years ago. Arthur Dickson Cannon was the second generation and James Cannon the third generation. Cannon Funeral Home was sold years ago to the owner of the Mackey Mortuary of Greenville, S.C. Both organizations were later sold to Stewart Enterprises, a public corporation out of New Orleans.
After years of consideration and planning between the Cannon family and Andy Byrd, a long-time business partner with Al Cannon (4th generation), plans were made and Heritage Funeral Home opened under private ownership.
It was the 130+ year history that led to the name Heritage Funeral Home.
