Joe has family ties to Bartow County dating back to the War between the States, and he and his wife Taylor are very excited to be a part of this community.
|C. W. Stoots, Co-Owner|
C. W. purchased the funeral home in 2007 and returned the firm to independent ownership. Joe & C. W. owned and operated a funeral home in Lancaster, South Carolina for a number of years, and made the decision to sell that firm so that Joe could return to his roots in Georgia and buy into Parnick Jennings Funeral Home. C. W. and Joe are very excited to bring local ownership back to Cartersville.

|Lloyd Buchanan, Consultant|
Born and raised in Atco Village, Lloyd retired from Goodyear in 1986 and joined our staff the very next day as the manager of the funeral home. With his oversight and direction, our funeral home experienced its first period of tremendous growth. This growth created the need to expand our facilities. The "face" of our building completely changed with the first addition and redesign of the building in 1991. Lloyd also oversaw the most recent addition to the building in 1995. Lloyd currently assists our staff as a consultant. Lloyd is married to the former Charlotte Jones who was born and raised in Sugar Valley. They have one son, Mark. Lloyd's sister, Ruth Wilson, retired from our staff as the office manager. Lloyd, Charlotte and Mark are active members of Atco Baptist Church. Most people remember Lloyd because of his distinctive bass voice. His forty-two year career in gospel music took him all over the Southeast to perform in churches, festivals and television studios. Lloyd's current gospel group, One Touch, is semi-retired and performs a few selected dates each month.
