History

Our funeral home has a unique history and committed relationship working within the community. We invite you to explore our legacy.

We have years of experience caring for families, from all walks of life. Each family comes to us because they know we are leaders in our profession, dedicated to excellence in service, and have the highest integrity.

When we sit down with a family, we have just one goal: to create a fitting, memorable and affordable service for their loved one. Together, we explore the wide variety of services and products available, as well as a wealth of creative ideas and suggestions.

Together, we'll design a memorial or funeral service that suits their needs now, and in the future. Families who come to us know that years from now, they will have deep peace-of-mind because in coming to us, they've done their best to honor their loved one.

Our History

Gerald and Sue Hoggard moved to Piggott in 1956, and initially worked for Lloyd Russell of Russell Mortuary. During those early years, as was common, the funeral home operated an ambulance service.

This attention to caring for the living, when incident or accident happened, continues to be a part of what we do at Hoggard & Sons: tending to the physical and emotional needs of those living in the Piggott community.

In 1971, Gerald formed his own firm with his two sons: Paul, and Sherrell, and that family unity is still reflected in our name: Hoggard & Sons. Some three years later, in 1974, they bought the building from Mr. Russell, and proceeded to renovate the chapel. Continued renovations have brought this facility up to the highest standards of comfort, elegance and accessibility.

In 2007 the family lost a son, Sherrell and in 2013 the family lost the founder of Hoggard & Sons Funeral Home, Gerald Hoggard. Despite these losses – or perhaps because of them – we renewed our commitment to caring for Piggott families when they face their own personal tragedies. After all, we are tempered by personal and professional experience. No one can understand your situation as well as we can.
