Sisk-Butler has a long and rich heritage which began many years ago. Frank Sisk owned a furniture store in Bessemer City and began selling caskets in 1928. He went to embalming school in Chicago in 1930 and then returned home to open Sisk Funeral Home on Virginia Avenue. He married Ellen Teague the same year.
In 1941 he built a funeral home on Eleventh Street. Needing a larger facility, Frank Sisk bought the Goldberg home at our present location in 1960. In 1962 his son-in-law, Joe Butler, joined the business. They added a new building in 1965 which included a large chapel.
In 1974 the funeral home was renamed Sisk-Butler Funeral Home. In September of 1991, two years after Frank Sisk passed away, the old portion of the funeral home burned. Our present building was built around the existing chapel in 1992.
Sisk-Butler Funeral & Cremation Services, which has deep roots in our community, is locally managed and operated. Our funeral directors include Eddie Pigg of Gastonia, Donna K. Baker of Bessemer City, and J. Scott Garrett of Bessemer City.
