Legacy Funeral Group Purchases Charlie Marshall Funeral Homes
Legacy Funeral Group announces the purchase of Charlie Marshall Funeral Homes, located in Rockport and Aransas Pass, Texas. These two funeral homes join more than 100 funeral homes and cemeteries already under the Legacy umbrella, operating across nine different states.
Charlie Marshall built his first funeral home in 1949 and faithfully served the families of Aransas Pass and Rockport for over 65 years. Marshall, who passed away in 2014, built a reputation and was known as a pillar of the South Texas Coastal Communities. His funeral homes have been recognized for service excellence by United States Presidents, congress members, senators, governors, and countless South Texas families.
“We are honored to continue Mr. Marshall’s legacy and serve the families of Rockport and Aransas Pass with the same level of professionalism and care that they would expect from Mr. Marshall himself,” said Michael Soper, owner of Legacy Funeral Group.
Mr. Marshall and Mr. Soper maintained a long friendship over the years and prior to his passing, Marshall insisted to his family that the continuation of his life’s work be entrusted to Mr. Soper and the Legacy Funeral Group.
Legacy Funeral Group was founded in 1998 and has built a reputation as one of the most trusted names in the death care industry. The company takes pride in preserving the family-owned funeral home feel in every community they serve—all while offering families a diverse array of funeral planning options.
