Fry Gibbs Funeral Home



About Us

Fry-Gibbs Funeral Home was originally a part of the Rodgers-Wade Furniture Company, which was founded around 1892. Fred Manton and Grady Fry purchased the funeral service division from the company in 1921, operating as Manton-Fry Funeral Home until 1943 when Marvin Gibbs acquired interest in the firm. This house was built in 1858 by an early physician Dr. A.S. Johnson. It was remodeled in 1907. In 1916 it was occupied by Dr. L.P. McCuistion (1869-1947) who served as a physician in Paris for 57 years. He founded the Sanitarium of Paris in 1914 and led in the development of the city as a hospital center. This structure was purchased in 1949 and following restoration and additions was occupied by Fry-Gibbs Funeral Home on May 21, 1951. On May 15, 1997, the Gibbs family acquired full ownership of the firm.
