My father was a Bailey and his father-in-law was a Hatch. Hatch’s father-in-law was a Wilkirson. For five generations, our family-owned funeral home has grown alongside the Waco community. Today, Wilkirson-Hatch-Bailey is owned by my two brothers, Roy and Wes, and me. Our family business, its history and its namesake are important to us. In fact, my brothers and I were even named after our family predecessors. Roy was named after our grandfather, Roy Hatch. Wes’s middle name is Wilkirson, and I was given my mother’s maiden name, Hatch. Don’t let the names confuse you. At the end of the day, we’re one big happy family, and serving families has been our ministry since 1925. We’re truly a Family Serving Families!
