Brent Summers - Owner, Operator, Licensed Funeral Director and Embalmer
Brent Summers is a Logan County native that grew up on a farm learning the value of hard work. As a teen Brent would stay with his grandparents frequently who lived in the funeral home. It was evident very soon that funeral service was the career path that he wanted to pursue. In 1993 he enrolled in Mid America College of Mortuary Science where he graduated in 1994 and successfully passed his National Board exams. For the next 20 years, Brent would work in his community with a great emphasis on community involvement and public relations. Brent believes a lot of becoming successful is establishing relationships. In 2010 Brent approached Kevin Kirby about partnering in the acquisition of Sanders Funeral Home. In March of that same year the purchase was made and sights were quickly set on the building of a new facility. This funeral home was the first ever in Logan County to be originally constructed as a funeral home. The families love the décor of our building and Brent's goal is to exceed the expectations of every family we serve. Brent is married to Nancy and they have 2 children and 2 grandchildren, which they love spending time with.
