Our History

Bryson Funeral Home, Inc., located in Pilot Knob, MO, was founded by Dr. William F. Bryson DVM and his wife Jean and began operation in February of 1983.  Upon opening Dr. Bryson pledged to the people of the Arcadia Valley that he would "provide a service that will help them with their time of grief and sorrow".  He dedicated the building in memory of his parents, Delmar and Minnie Bryson, "who lived and died in this valley which they loved so much".

Built on a foundation of trusted service, the tradition continues today with Dr. Bryson's daughter Allison Bryson, as 2nd generation owner and licensed funeral director.
