Gary Rigdon Licensed Funeral Director/Embalmer & Owner

I was born and raised in Dumas, Tx. After graduating from Dumas High School, I served in the United States Army for three years. After my enlistment in the Army I attended Dallas Institute of Funeral Service where I met the love of my life, Tina. We moved to Brownfield and I began serving the community on March 17th, 2008 here at Brownfield Funeral Home with Bob and Jacalyn Jones. On June 1, 2014 Bob and Jacalyn allowed us the privilege of purchasing the funeral home and continuing to serve the community that we have grown to love. Tina and I have a great love of God and are blessed to serve him. God has blessed us with four wonderful children, Danielle, Gage, Blake and Aspyn.

I was born and raised in Arkansas and moved to Texas in 1998. I worked for Carter BloodCare for 11 years before attending Dallas Institute of Funeral Service, where I met my wonderful husband, Gary. In March of 2008, Gary was offered an opportunity to work for Bob and Jacalyn Jones at Brownfield Funeral Home. Gary, our four children and I moved  from Dallas to the loving community of Brownfield.

We will continue to serve the Lord and his ministry at Brownfield Funeral Home by providing love, care and support to our community during their time of loss and grief.

Carolina "Carrie" Vasquez Office Administrator/ Pre-Need Specialist

I was born in Cheyene, Wyoming. I was raised in a loving but small community of Union. I attended Union School and that is where I met my high school sweetheart and husband, Ruben Vasquez. We have two beautiful and amazing children; Gerald and Chelsea. I always had the love for flower arranging and decorating so I found working at Brownfield Floral so much fun and a dream come true for many years. I strongly believe there was more for me out there, The Lord guided me to Brownfield Funeral Home, where I am the Office Administrator and a Pre need Agent. I am so honored to be working here. I believe that this is the most difficult time for families and I am here to comfort and do what I can to make time a little easier.
