Our History

Our History

Tapp Funeral Home started in 1895 when Noah Tapp went into business as an embalmer in Tilden, KY. During the 1930's, Noah's son, Luke, along with partners, opened Tapp Funeral Home in the current location at 223 Third St. In 1941, Fred M. Tapp, who was still managing the funeral homes in Dixon and Providence that his dad had previously opened in the 1930's, and his brother Kestner decided to completely remodel the Tapp building. Fred M. convinced his son to move from California to Henderson to manage the new building. Through his efforts the business flourished. Tapp Funeral Home was owned by many owners after Fred Allen's death in 1979. Maynard Glunt purchased the business in 1986 which was later purchased by Prime Succession. Tapp Funeral Home returned to local family ownership in January, 2004 when it was repurchased by Maynard and Gene Glunt, together with James and Judy Veccia. This purchase included Benton-Glunt Funeral Home and Roselawn Memorial Gardens. Tapp Funeral Home continues to be a well-known and respected name in the funeral business in Henderson and the surrounding areas.
