Reliable Funeral Home was founded in 1952 by Leonard C. Davis, Sr. Our first location was at 1389 N. Union. Mr. Davis was helped by nephews Nelson Thomas, Sr. and James Thomas, Sr.
In 1965, Reliable Funeral Home moved to 3964 Washington Boulevard in St. Louis to better serve the community. In 1969, our founder, Mr. Leonard C. Davis Sr. passed away, and in 1975, Leonard C. Davis Jr. passed away. In July 1975, the Thomas family took full ownership of the business.
In 1988, the Thomas family renewed their commitment to the St. Louis Community by expanding the building to better serve families and their traditions. Ten years later in 1998, the new chapel was added at 3958 Washington Boulevard so that families would have access to the best amenities in the area.
With God’s blessing our desire is to continue serving the St. Louis Community with reliable and courtesy service.
