About Us


North Texas is our home, and we are proud to serve the families who have trusted us for years. To us, being local is important and we will continue to keep our local roots flourishing.

Family Focus

We’ve been family focused since our founding over 70 years ago. And while our family may change, one thing will not: keeping the families we serve at the center of our focus.


At R.W. Owens and Son, we have a long tradition of providing you with compassionate and complete funeral care. So while funeral traditions may change and our services change with the times, we remain committed to our tradition of service—now and for generations to come.

Our Story

R.W. Owens and Son began as the dream of a young man when Richard W. Owens earned his embalmers license in 1932. That dream became a reality when he founded R.W. Owens and Son Funeral Home in 1945.

Richard Owens wasn’t from Wolfe City, but he made Wolfe City his home and settled his family here as he launched his career. Over the years, more generations of the Owens family followed him into the business, including his son Bobby Owens and his grandson Dick Owens. The Owens family not only grew the funeral home into a respected local business, but they also gave back to the community—serving in church, civic and community organizations.

Today a new generation has assumed the mantle of compassionate, professional, full-service funeral care to the Wolfe City and surrounding area. While the names may change and the story may evolve, one thing remains constant: our dedication to serving the families who have trusted us for over 70 years.
