If you’re seeking an honorable celebration of life in Greensboro and the surrounding areas, we invite you to learn more about where we came from, our vision, and the dedicated people behind our work.

A History of Caring

Approximately 1950 and after a number of years with the former Hanes Funeral Home in Greensboro, Odell Lambeth decided he wanted to have his own Funeral Establishment. He partnered with Fred Troxler, who owned the land that the new funeral home would occupy, and Ralph Hutton, a funeral director from Topeka, Kansas. Together they formed what was initially known as Lambeth-Hutton-Troxler Funeral Home. Odell handled most of the design work and supervised the construction of the new facility, which opened in 1953. A short time later it was felt that the name Lambeth-Hutton-Troxler was too long and unwieldy, thus the name was changed for a brief time to Lambeth Funeral Home. Ralph Hutton soon left the business, and in recognition of Fred Troxler's contributions and service the name was changed to Lambeth-Troxler Funeral Home.
