Tatum ISD lost another beautiful and talented former student over the holidays. The funeral home was in constant contact with me to answer any questions I might have as they prepared a beautiful service for our student. The funeral home coordinated with me along the way to walk through the auditorium the day before so they could be prepared, they made sure the school auditorium and cafeteria was set up well in advance of the family arriving and were always so professional when dealing with our students. I personally witnessed Blake and his staff going well beyond to help the family and our community through this tough time. I highly recommend the Cammack Family’s Welch funeral home to anyone that is in need of a first class and extremely professional funeral service.

Helpful Information

Dear Friends,

Thank you for visiting our website. Welch Funeral Home has a rich history in Longview and surrouding areas, dating back over 105 years. My family has ties to Longview dating back to the late 1930's when my great grandmother, Ethel Cammack, moved to the bustling boomtown of Longview to operate a boarding house. My mother's parents, Vance and Dot Maxwell moved to Longview from Oklahoma in 1948 and began a successful wholesale beverage distributorship. In 2007, I began my career in funeral service in Tyler, at Lloyd James Funeral Home. Since graduating from Dallas Institute of Funeral Service in 2009 it has been my dream to own a funeral home in my hometown. In November 2016 I was afforded the opportunity of a lifetime when the Welch Family approached me about purchasing Welch Funeral Home.
