McDougald Funeral Home was established in 1881, by Malcolm Alexander McDougald. After four generations of ownership, McDougald Funeral Home and Crematorium was sold to Sherrill and Melanie Bumgarner of Troy, NC, in March 2016.
A native of Troy, Sherrill is a second generation funeral director following in the steps of his mother, Dorothy. Sherrill and Melanie have two sons, Tyler and Ryan and two granddaughters, Hadley and Addison. Tyler has chosen a different career path at this time; however, Ryan has continued the family’s tradition as a third generation funeral director.
“Funeral service is rapidly transforming and meeting the challenges is exciting. With an excellent staff, a positive attitude, and increased emphasis on meaningful and memorable service options, we plan to remain as North Carolina’s oldest independent, family owned funeral home and crematorium.”
Sherrill and his family look forward to establishing roots and lasting friendships with the community of Scotland County, Montgomery County and surrounding areas.
