Roland R. Speaks                                                                      

From our origins in the mid 1930's to today, we have served our community with compassion and a genuine sense of calling. Roland and Beth Speaks started the funeral home in 1936.  They established a reputation for honesty, integrity, and a real desire to be of service.  The tradition they began has been carried on today by their son, Bob Speaks and grandsons Brad Speaks and David Speaks.




Roland and Beth Speaks                 
From our three locations we now serve all of Eastern Jackson County, including the cities of Independence, Lee's Summit, Blue Springs, Buckner, and Kansas City.

With the third generation actively managing the funeral home, the legacy of our founders lives on.  Our commitment remains the same as it was when Roland Speaks opened his doors.  We help families celebrate life.
