"Marshall County's Only Onsite Crematory"

Family Owned and Operated Since 1916


I would like to welcome all to the Bills-McGaugh & Hamilton Funeral Home and Crematory website.  I'm Dennis Hamilton, manager of the funeral home. I was born and raised in Marshall County and graduated high school here back in the dark ages. I went off to college and moved to Memphis and built a career there in the funeral profession. But, "I'm baacckkk". I am very excited and happy about the opportunity to come back home after so many years.  Bon Jovi said, "Who says you can't go home?There's only one place they call me one of their own".

The new age of websites and social media keep us all updated in real time. It's amazing how fast news travels, good or bad, true or hearsay. With everyone having a smartphone, news and information is instantaneous. Literally, on a global scale, you can type in a word, a phrase, a location and right there, you find out almost everything you need to know. The downside is very few of us ever disconnect. At times, the flow of information can be overwhelming. These days, most of us are never really disconnected from our jobs, which can add more stress to an already fast paced existence. In my old life of corporate management, I could not listen to music in my car. (and I LOVE music!!) My mind could not disconnect from corporate deadlines, budgetary goals, meetings, webinars, financial reports, conference calls, etc. Listening to music provided no comfort or pleasure. So...I retired. Well, I didn't retire, as much as I surrendered. I waved the white flag, screaming silently, "I give, I give!" That was my "aha" moment. I knew I had more to do in this life, so.....after considerable self reflection, I came home.

In my new life at Bills-McGaugh and Hamilton, I'm connected all the time but very happy and content living and serving in Marshall County. I've learned how to manage the tsunami of information we all receive. I listen to my much loved old time rock and roll and country music and enjoying a simpler life in the place I grew up and again, call home.
