History

Parkside Chapel was founded in 1997 by J. L. Marcum and several business associates. Mr. Marcum was an active community and business leader and a funeral director for over fifty years.

In 2004, Mr. Marcum passed away and then manager of Parkside, David Anderson, became co-owner of the firm. In late 2010, Mike Roberts, a 35 year veteran of funeral service, moved to Hereford to begin working at Parkside Chapel with the intention of purchasing the establishment following Mr. Anderson's retirement. In 2011, Mike Roberts became the sole owner of Parkside Chapel, and he is honored to serve the residents of Hereford and the surrounding communities with great compassion, dignity, and respect. Mr. Roberts is an active member of the Hereford Lion's Club and a proud member of the Panhandle Funeral Directors Association and the Texas Funeral Directors Association.
