On behalf of my family, I would like to thank you for visiting our website. As a family owned business it is my distinct privilege to continue to serve Georgetown and the surrounding areas.

Mark was born to Don and Etta Ramsey in Vernon, Tx. He has called Georgetown his home since 1995. He graduated from Vernon High School in 1974, and then attended Stephen F. Austin University where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Education. He continued his interest in the funeral industry and attended and graduated from the Dallas Institute of Mortuary Science in Dallas, Tx. Mark became a funeral director and embalmer and feels that being a funeral director is his calling in life.

Mark married his long time best friend, Pam Spears. The couple had their first child in 1986, Lauren, and in 1987, their second child, Megan. His wife, daughters, and five grandchildren are the light of his life along with his two sons-in-law Brock and Payton. Mark enjoys spending time with his family and loves sports of all kinds, especially golf.

In the city of Georgetown, Mark served on the board of directors for the Georgetown Project. Mark was the President and a board member for Georgetown Parks and Recreation. Mark is also a former City Councilman and Noonday Kiwanis President. He also served on the board of directors for TFDA (Texas Funeral Directors Association), representing the central Texas area. Mark and his family are members of First Baptist Church in Georgetown.

While at A&M, Brock earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Sport Management with a minor in both Business, and International and Cultural Management.

College Station, Texas was where Brock met Lauren Ramsey, and he knew right away she was the one. Brock and Lauren were later married in 2010 and they have three children: Kensington, Holden, and Remi.

Brock believes his calling in life is to minister to families who have lost their loved ones (or in their time of need). Brock and his family attend First Baptist Georgetown, where he serves as a Life Group Leader and a Deacon. He considers himself blessed to be able to join a wonderful staff, which sincerely cares for the citizens of their community.

For those who serve, funeral service is a Calling.

I have been in the funeral service industry for 18 years, graduating from Commonwealth Institute of Funeral Service in Houston, Magna Cum Laude, and now serve the families of Georgetown and surrounding area. 

Other educational experiences I have and still enjoy are from: The University of Houston, several community colleges, on-line courses from the Universities of California, Yale, Singapore, Sidney, and Copenhagen. I enjoy learning about subjects ranging from biological sciences, paleontology, anthropogeny, quantum and astro-physics, geology and others depending on the time of day. In the wee hours of the morning or late at night I enjoy writing fiction.

My lovely wife Cheryl and I have six children with sixteen and counting grandchildren.
