Our History

Our History

Eaton Funeral Service has been serving Davie County families for over 70 years.

In March of 1951, N. Wayne Eaton and Leo Whitt purchased Walker Funeral Home from Harley S. Walker, who had operated the funeral home from the early 1920’s. N. Wayne Eaton was joined later by his father, Carl Eaton and uncle, Hubert Eaton, who then purchased the interest owned by Mr. Whitt.  The Eaton family members would then purchase Siler Funeral Home on Maple Avenue which merged into Eaton Funeral Home on North Main Street, its current location. The current building was built in 1961 and completely remodeled in 1995. In 1992, N. Wayne Eaton retired, and the funeral home was acquired by Forbis and Dick Funeral Service of Greensboro, who were longtime friends of Mr. Eaton.

Nick Miller manages the funeral home and is a lifelong resident of Davie County. Eaton Funeral Service is very community oriented, while providing support for many charities, local events and community outreach programs throughout Davie County. We are proud to provide professional local service with dignity, respect and compassion to our friends and neighbors in and around Davie and surrounding counties. We are always available to answer any questions or concerns that a family member or loved one may have.
