In 1948, P.W. Curry founded Tech Memorial Park. Years later, Bill Curry and James A. Curry joined P.W. in his company. Then, in 1954, R.P. Brown built a mausoleum on the cemetery grounds.

A funeral home was built

In 1964, Edward Smith (lawyer and accountant) and 4 other businessmen bought the cemetery. Almost immediately they began planning the addition of a funeral home, which opened in 1965. By 1979, Edward was the sole owner of both the funeral home and the cemetery, which served as Lubbock's Resthaven.

When he bought the cemetery, there were just three buildings: a small cinder-block office, a maintenance building, and a building that is now the interior of the mausoleum.

An Illinois native who served in the US Army, Edward had a near-death experience in August 1963 that led him and his wife to decide to be buried in Lubbock. Although they initially only came to town to buy their digging property, they stayed. And they still haven't used their properties. Instead, they continue their mission to serve the Lubbock community in what is now Resthaven Funeral Home and Resthaven Memorial Park.

Last year

From 1984 to 1990, Edward's son Mark was president of the firm, while Edward retired from law practice to focus entirely on the funeral business. At the same time, Mark and Park Superintendent Ron Hillis oversaw the addition of maintenance facilities. Funeral boxes and concrete domes were made there.

In 1990, Edward started what he called the Empty Tomb Project, a 5-acre section of the cemetery guarded by a bronze angel who used to tell the story of Jesus Christ's resurrection every Easter.

Today, Resthaven Funeral Home and Resthaven Memorial Park are members of the Dignity Memorial® Network of funeral, cremation and cemetery providers.

the empty tomb

Resthaven Funeral Home and Memorial Park | Monument of Dignity (20)In the central part of Resthaven Memorial Park is the empty tomb. Designed by former cemetery president Edward Smith in the early 1990s and built with soil removed for burial, the 5-acre elevated section of the cemetery is guarded by a bronze angel. The centerpiece of the section — which includes a cremation garden and private property, among other things — is a tomb made of concrete with an interior bench for the body and an 800-pound concrete door leading down a dirt road.

The Empty Tomb exists to tell the story of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Every year the door to the tomb is closed on Good Friday night. It opens again on Easter morning. From 1994 to the present, priests of various faiths have held interfaith Easter sunrise services at the tomb.

We care about the community

Resthaven Funeral Home and Memorial Park | Monument of Dignity (21)The teams at Resthaven Funeral Home and Resthaven Memorial Park believe it's important to be involved in our community. We support many different programs and organizations throughout the year, includingCrazy, ThisRonald McDonalds, Marido,Southern Plains Food Bank, a Lubbock Business Expo e o almoço anual Mayor's Beans & Cornbread Luncheon.

We also invite the public to participate in funeral events and cemeteries throughout the year. The annual Easter sunrise service takes place a few weeks before Easter and features the 14 Stations of the Cross, each 10 to 12 feet tall.

On Mother's Day, we distribute fresh carnations to families who visit our property and invite them to place the flowers on the graves of their loved ones.

The cemetery's annual Memorial Day event attracts 300 to 400 visitors. It is the biggest Memorial Day event in Lubbock. Flags were placed on approximately 6,000 veterans' graves across the cemetery, and people were invited to recite the Pledge of Allegiance. The event features a local speaker, ROTC, veteran groups, live music and singers, refreshments and a fun giveaway.

We also recognize how critical our public officials are to the safety and well-being of Lubbock. To honor your efforts, we invite youLubecca fire departmentat our funeral home every June for Burn the Brisket. We organize a similar event called Back the Blue tolubecca policeI september.
