We’re so proud to announce our recent addition of Floyd Funeral Home in Olanta, South Carolina. The funeral home, which has been serving its community since 1927, was formerly owned by Donn Kell Floyd (Kell).
Greg Rollings commented “Floyd Funeral Home has over 90 years of experience serving Olanta with care and compassion. Kell’s grandfather founded the funeral home in the ‘20s and it has been in the Floyd family ever since. Debbie and I look forward to helping continue the Floyd family legacy and help build upon their strong foundation of service in their community.” Greg also mentioned that this marks his eighth location in South Carolina.
Floyd Funeral Home was founded in 1927 by Kell’s grandparents, J. Kelly and Colene Floyd. Kell’s father, James Kelton Floyd, came into the family business in 1955 with his wife, Jimlyn, who was also a licensed funeral director. It wasn’t until 1970 that James Kelton took over management of the family business after his father passed away. Seven years later, Kell joined the family funeral home in 1977 as a funeral director and then assumed full-time management of the business from his father in 2015.
Speaking with Donn Kell Floyd, he mentioned that with the over 40 years in funeral service and ongoing health issues, it was time he started looking at slowing down and beginning the next chapter of his life. When asked why he decided to choose Rollings Funeral Service, Floyd said “I didn’t want to go with a big corporation. Greg and Debbie are a husband and wife company which would allow the funeral home to still be family owned.” Floyd also noted the ease with which the whole process went left him feeling he definitely made the right decision with Rollings Funeral Service. “I would recommend Rollings Funeral service 1,000,000%,” Floyd commented.
Annually, Floyd Funeral Home serves around 100 families.
