At the William R. Short & Son Funeral Home, we have always taken our motto of "Local People Helping Local People" to heart. For the past 3 decades, our family has been standing with your families when you have experienced the loss of a loved one. We are deeply saddened to inform you of the death of our founder, William R. Short. Bill cared a great deal about the families that we serve and considered their care at a time of loss to be his greatest responsibility. Part of this responsibility was to insure that his legacy as the founder of the William R. Short & Son Funeral Home would continue in the event of his death, so that the needs of the families that rely on our family would be met for years to come.

The Short family is here to serve your family, and we will continue to treat the opportunity to be of service to you as an honor and privilege. Phillip R. Short is a second-generation funeral director who has been working with his father for over 20 years, striving to provide services that are unmatched in the community. Phil will continue to serve as director of William R. Short & Son Funeral Home.

A family funeral business can never replace a dedicated professional like Bill. We can only work every day to try to live up to the high standard that he set for us to follow. Bill knew that this day would come. He, like us, hoped it would be many years from now. We wanted our client families and friends to know that their needs will continue to be met at William R. Short& Son Funeral Home. The high quality service that your families have come to expect will continue.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for the kind words and comfort that you have offered to our family during our time of loss. Words alone cannot express how much we appreciate your thoughtfulness during our time of need.

We are here to serve you.
