Celebrating 50 years at Harold W. Vick Funeral Home
Watch our video to learn more about us and how we serve our community.
In 1942 Harold Vick was drafted into the United States Army serving during Word War II. With the encouragement of mutual friends, he began to correspond with his classmate Viola. After several visits back home to Mount Clemens, Harold and Viola were engaged to be married. After being honorably discharged, he attended Wayne State University – School of Mortuary Science. He graduated in 1946, the same week he married his sweetheart Viola.
As a licensed funeral director and embalmer (separate licenses in the 1940’s) he was employed at the Hubbard Funeral Service for over 29 years until 1971. At the age of 49, Harold made the leap of faith and decided to purchase the D.N. Cooley Funeral Home at 140 South Gratiot (now known as 140 South Main Street).
As a young man he had applied for employment with Mr. Cooley and was thrilled to have been able to sweep the front side walk after school, never imagining that he would one day own the business.
