Manuel sold the business in McKee to his brother Murrell and moved to
Berea. Their brother Melvin (Blue) Lakes and Conley Tyra are the
current owners of the Lakes Funeral Home in McKee.
The original funeral home was started in the old John Rowland house on
U.S. 421 South in McKee. Over the years the original home has been
replaced with a 10,000 square feet colonial style funeral home with two
large chapels to serve the people of Jackson County and surrounding
