In 1917 William S. and Catherine W. Holley founded Holley and Sons Funeral Home. In 1955 John P. Holley, Sr. decided to continue the tradition and renamed the family business J.P. Holley Funeral Home.

John P. Holley, Jr. continued that leadership in the third generation until his death in 2003 and now in our fourth generation of service and under the leadership of Johnathan P. and Joya D. Holley, our tradition of caring continues. Richland County and surrounding areas consider us to be a shoulder they can lean on.


As you face the loss of a loved one, our wish at J. P. Holley Funeral Home is to help you celebrate a life well-lived, by providing a final tribute worthy of the individual.

The right funeral services can make all the difference in helping your family to grieve while honoring the memory of a loved one. Our mission is to guide and assist you in creating the most fitting and beautiful services that will be remembered for years to come.

You can trust our expertise when it comes to planning final arrangements that require the upmost attention to form and detail.
